Student Banned From Class On Christianity For Challenging Pro-Transgender Arguments



An Indiana University Pennsylvania professor barred one of her students from a class on Christianity for refusing to apologize for challenging transgender and feminist arguments.

Lake Ingle, an Indiana University senior, told The Daily Caller News Foundation that he appeared before the university’s Academic Integrity Board (AIB) on March 9 to dispute Dr. Alison Downie’s attempt to have him permanently removed from a class called “Special Topics In Christianity: Self, Sin, And Salvation.”

Downie sanctioned Ingle and tried to have him barred from the class for challenging the premise of a Feb. 28 class discussion based on a Ted Talk by Paula Stone Williams, who is a transgender woman. Ingle told TheDCNF that he objected to the discussion because Downie allegedly prompted the class to talk about “the reality of white male privilege,” systemic male sexism, and concepts like “mansplaining” based on Williams’ talk.

“I protested to the use of anecdotal evidence to then start a discussion and trying to reference the material or the speaker’s account as if they were facts. The professor made it very clear that these things (White male privilege, mainsplaining, etc.) were … well, she seemed to me that she made it clear that they were a reality and not part of an ongoing discussion,” Ingle told TheDCNF.

1. ms williams seems fairly bright

i can see how exposure to ideas like this would challenge the student's preconceives notions.

5. Your defense of alternative realities and biological defectives is noted. One wonders what you get

 

from the willful suspension of reason. Is the DNC sending out checks or sanctimony certificates?

7. Well as she admits being transgender I will call him Paul.

He may be a wonderful caring nice person, seems to keep a relationship together (it is not a marriage where it counts, in the eyes of god)

My church which is a very fundamental(not fundamentalist as the world says), bible believing and bible preaching church! Our doors are open to all. a gay couple can come to our church and seek god and we will not allow judgment to fall on them.

But (you knew this was coming) if they claim to be a Christian then we are bound by God Himself to take action. We must show them the scriptures that condemn homosexual behavior and give them the opportunity to turn from that sin. ( we do not try to make them straight, we realize they may have a sexual urge for same sex till they die- they just must remain celibate).

Bottom line? A person is welcome in teh church no matter what they are- but they cannot be a Christian if they refuse to change their thinking when it comes to what the bible clearly calls sin!

10. Self-righteous bullshit. "God Himself" does not "bind" humans

to take a single action with respect to homosexuals.You cannot cite a single Bible verse that directs humans to do a single thing about homosexuality. The Bible says judgment is only for God. And anyone who believes in all-powerful God should get that.

And the Scriptures you show homosexuals consist of a few verses in the Bible, which also happens to say things like the sin God hates most is gossip and not to wear blended fabric (linen and wool). Jesus said not a word about homosexuality.

Far more often than anything about homosexuality appearing in the Bible, the Bible, both old and new testaments, teaches to love your neighbor, to judge not, and to remove the mote from your own eye before checking for the speck in the eye of your brother.

The spirits of condemnation and control freaks, of self righteousness and holier-than-thou and ugly petty meanness cause the behavior you describe, not any Biblical order of God for humans to deal with homosexuals in any way, other than by loving their neighbors.

However, some people are so desperate to feel superior to others that they ignore a lot of Biblical teaching and hubristically take it upon themselves to judge others, in violation of many Biblical admonitions.. And then misattribute their mishigoss to God and/or the Bible, when it's only their skewed interpretation.

And since only a small minority of humans is even tempted to homosexual sex, as opposed to sins like lying, adultery, lust, cheating, etc., homosexual sex is the easiest to be self-righteous about (transexuals being even a smaller minority).

12. So I guess if you go to a church

You would not judge a self proclaimed pedophile, or one who engages in bestiality? Do you judge rapists?

Where do yuo draw the line when you start judging others?

If a murderwer comes to us and repents and receives Christ- we rejoice that they have chosen Jesus but tell them they must turn themselves in to the authorities!

All your psycho babble is old old old arguments that sink faster than lead in water.

But as you cast the net wider- we also expel from our church community unrepentant liars, adulterers and whole lot of other folk, who after being shown the bible and god calling their action sin- are given a chance to turn (repent), if they do, they8 are welcomed! If they wish to persist in their sin, while we still ove them- they are shown the door until they decide to agree with God!

But I will not apologize for the Word of God-- active practicing homosexuals who are unrepentant will not inherit the kingdom of God! Teh Word of God shows that when a society applauds homosexuality like America does- that nation has been handed over to judgment! Just show you know we love all sexual sinners with christ love-- but will not welcome them as members unless they repent- that goes for the adulterer, the unmarried couple getting it on, the pedophil;e the besitiaty committer, the prostitute. same with an active thief, active liar, gossiper and so on.

we do not judge people for their salvation (that is the command Jesus gave) but we do judge sin ans sin as Jesus did command. sin brings terrible consequences to people and we seek to have people avoid those consequences.


BTW: if you studied the Bible a little closer, you would find out that God does bind people and will hand them over to their sin. Teh Apostle Paul under the authority of the Lord told the church in Corinth to hand a son havind sex with His step mom over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh! Then in 2 Corinth. He told them to welcome him back for he had received his punishment. Which implies he repented (which is to turn) and they were to welcome him back into fellowship.

8. yes but,

the "student's preconceives notions" is based on reality instead of postmodernist intersectional bullshit that the teacher was indoctrinating (not educating) the class with.
