The following appeared as a letter to the editor recently in the Jonesboro Sun in response to a story about ASU forming a “campus climate council.” No, this is not about global warming, but about the political climate on campus. – Burkasrugly
In a story in Friday’s edition of The Jonesboro Sun, ASU announced that it was going to form a “campus climate council.” Interim Chancellor Doug Whitlock cited several reasons for creating this new group, including “concerns from international students.” According to the report, the proposed climate council would consist of representatives from several campus groups including Greek organizations, the Gay-Straight Alliance, the Muslim Student Association, HOLA (Hispanic and Latino), and the Black Student Association. What group is missing here?
Why aren’t the Christians represented? Christianity was the most persecuted religious group in the world again in 2016 with 90,000 Christians being murdered for their faith last year — one every six minutes.
Radical Islam has been the main source of persecution of Christians worldwide per year, according to Open Doors USA.
Apparently, ASU is not concerned with hearing the concerns of Christians on campus, especially so since the majority of students and funding come from Christian parents.
It is very alarming that ASU is catering to the Muslim Student Association, which was created by members of the Muslim Brotherhood at the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign in January 1963. “It [MSA] was essentially ‘an arm of the Saudi-funded, Muslim Brotherhood- controlled Muslim World League.'” A 2007 NYPD report listed the Muslim Students Association as a “radicalization incubator.”
Local clergy and parents of students should be concerned as it appears that there is a very radical left-leaning bias to this group. If we are not careful, ASU could become like Berkley.
