Liberals claim that they are open-minded towards all types of people and religious faiths. That is, of course, unless it comes to white conservative Christians...
Balliol JCR prevented Christian Union (CU) representatives from attending its college freshers’ fair, a leaked email chain seen by Cherwell reveals.
The JCR committee initially attempted to prevent any CU representation whatsoever, stating that it wanted the freshers’ fair to be a “secular space” as it “couldn’t guarantee every major belief system” would be represented, which risked “alienating” new students.
During the initial email exchange, JCR Vice President Freddy Potts, on behalf of the JCR Welfare Subcommittee, justified the ban by telling a CU representative: “We recognise the wonderful advantages in having CU representatives at the Fresher’s Fair, but are concerned that there is potential for harm to freshers who are already struggling to feel welcome in Oxford.”
He added: “Our sole concern is that the presence of the CU alone may alienate incoming students. This sort of alienation or micro-aggression is regularly dismissed as not important enough to report, especially when there is little to no indication that other students or committee members may empathise, and inevitably leads to further harm of the already most vulnerable and marginalised groups."
“Historically, Christianity’s influence on many marginalised communities has been damaging in its methods of conversion and rules of practice, and is still used in many places as an excuse for homophobia and certain forms of neo-colonialism.”
Liberal college students don't like some of the "closed-minded" opinions of a conservative group, so they have decided to ban the group altogether. Banning the Christian group is much easier for them than actually putting forth the effort to try and understand why it's members feel the way they do. After all, doing that might challenge the way the liberals look at the world, and they can't have that happen!
College leftists in the West are always trying to create "safe spaces" for themselves. These "safe spaces" are effectively progressive bubbles that silence any voice that is remotely conservative. This isn't just happening at Oxford, it's happening at college campuses all over the Western world.
Protesters at U.C. Berkeley spent the last year launching violent protests when conservative speakers like Milo Yiannopoulos or Ann Coulter were scheduled to speak on campus. These protests were so intense that the conservative speakers often ended up cancelling their appearances over security concerns, allowing the liberal activists to win and stay in their "safe spaces" unchallenged.
