Every day, it seems we learn of one more poke (to put it mildly) at Americans’ right to free speech. In many ways, our institutions of higher learning are leading the way — not so surprising, given their tendency to be liberal bastions.
As we’ve reported previously, the University of California wants students to refrain from “microagressions” like calling America the “land of opportunity,” while the University of Tennessee is urging students to junk references to “he,” “she,” and “them,” in favor of gender-neutral “ze” and “xe” (but has thankfully backpedaled on that one).
The latest instance of higher education stupidity appears to take aim directly at Christians. But some Texans were having none of it — and fought back.
A professor at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley was forced to remove an injunction against saying “God bless you” from a course syllabus in the face of student outrage.
The syllabus, images of which went viral on social media last week, instructed students to “Please refrain from saying, ‘God bless you’ during the classes and exams,” according to CBS affiliate KGBT.
Students interviewed by KGBT were divided in their opinions, with some calling the rule a violation of religious freedom while others wondered why the issue was generating so much attention.
“I honestly wouldn’t have a problem with it,” said Aaron Bravo, a UTRGV student. “It shouldn’t really be a problem, because it’s the teacher’s classrooms.”
