The cultural Marxist war against Christianity in Britain is steadily becoming more blatant and extreme. The latest example is the news that Oxford University students have banned a Christian union from their college freshers’ fair after saying the religion is ‘damaging’ and ‘an excuse for homophobia and neo-colonialism’.
Student union officials at Balliol College, Oxford, prevented representatives from attending and warned that the society could cause ‘harm’ by setting up a stall at the event.
The decision was revealed in a leaked email chain that has sparked fury across the college.
Vice president Frederick Potts told Christian union representatives: ‘Christianity’s influence on many marginalised communities has been damaging in its methods of conversion and rules of practice.
‘It is still used in many places as an excuse for homophobia and certain forms of neo-colonialism.’
Organisers also claimed that the popular fair was a ‘secular space’ and that they ‘didn’t want to monopolise the presence of any individual faith’, reports the Cherwell student newspaper.
But there is good news: Last night furious students passed a motion condemning the ban as a ‘violation of free speech and religious freedom’.
It stated: ‘The Balliol JCR (student union) should not make judgements regarding the legitimacy of faith groups or religious expression.’
The motion prohibits officials from barring any official religious societies from taking part in the fresher’s fair in future.
Asked to comment about the shameful decision, Andrea Williams, chief executive at Christian Concern, said: ‘The leading institution in the world founded on Christian principles is forgetting its great history.
‘In Christianity there has been freedom of expression, freedom of speech, freedom to believe and manifest belief.
‘It is the student union that is rewriting history and using cheap smears to spread falsehoods with regards to Christianity.’
