Earlier this week we got wind of a workshop at George Washington University about “Christian Privilege.” Which tickled our collective funny bones when we considered all the persecution Christians have endured since Pontius Pilate washed his hands of the matter. Regardless, since residents of the First World no longer worry about pestilence, or being fed to lions, GWU thought it necessary to scold the Jesus-following students for all that privilege. Well, rather than just mock it (as we did), a few Christian students decided to attend.
Campus Reform correspondent Abagail Marone attended the workshop to see what the heck was going on.
About 30-35 people attended the workshop, as space was limited. But of those students, 10-12 were there to voice how silly the concept of “Christian Privilege” is. Fair, considering all those recent lawsuits against Christian bakers and florists who’re just saying no to gay weddings.
Abigail and other students quickly pointed out being Christian is a choice. So if others wanted to take the escalator upstairs, they were free to do so. Nice analogy for getting into heaven, there. Probably unintentional… or the workings of the Holy Spirit.
Even the person leading the workshop, according to Abigail, was astonished Christians on campus felt the way they did. So if anyone has “privilege” at GWU, perhaps it’s the myriad of whiny snot-shooters bitching about everyone else, then hosting workshops for their mini versions of Festivus. Guess where they store the pole.
What Abigail and her Campus Reform compadres did was perfect: attend the event. Hear what the dumbos had to say, then rebut the silliness. Amen, amen I say to you, blessed are the brave in spirit, for they shall inherit the joy of confronting stupid right to its face.
