on Christians as “the Other” in academia

(Not all of academia, obviously, but far too much of it. And more and more of it as we go.)

Anyway, no one would ever confuse the proprietor of the Ace of Spades HQ blog with being a Christian, or even particularly religious in any sense, but he precisely points out the problem on display at FAU, though FAU is only one anecdote of a much wider mindset.

“The bizarre assumption at work here seems to be that Only Christians are capable of tribal and/or irrational thought, and thus that only Christians need to be “educated” out of such thinking.” [emphasis his]

You should, of course, read the whole thing.

      Nothing the professor has said, if anything, is publicly available, as far as I know. One suspects he’s given some explanation to someone in the administration, but I’ll be surprised if that will be released.
