UC Davis No Longer Defines "Religious Discrimination" as Being Christian

Posted by Dave Blount at February 17, 2011 10:40 AM

The one nice thing about moonbat educrats is the spinelessness they have developed over decades of reflexively submitting to every demand shrieked by leftist radicals. Keep pushing them and they will move:

The University of California at Davis has backed away from a policy that defined religious discrimination as Christians oppressing non-Christians after more than two dozen Christian students filed a formal complaint.
The definition was listed in a document called, "The Principles of Community." It defined "Religious/Spiritual Discrimination" as "The loss of power and privilege to those who do not practice the dominant culture's religion. In the United States, this is institutionalized oppressions toward those who are not Christian."

For a list of contemporary examples of Christians oppressing people, refer to moonbats' imaginations, which is the only place they can be found.

Raheem Reed, an associate executive vice chancellor at UC-Davis, said he received the letter and removed the definition Wednesday afternoon.
"I certainly can see how a Christian student reading that definition might feel and that's why it was immediately disabled and taken down," Reed told Fox News Radio.

Immediately disabled?

[O]ne student said they complained to administrators last November about the policy and nothing was done. "Christians deserve the same protections against religious discrimination as any other students on a public university campus," [David] French [of the Alliance Defense Fund] told Fox News Radio. "The idea that a university would discriminate against Christians is a very old story, unfortunately, and one that we see played out every day." …
French said all of the students who complained are fearful of backlash if their identities became known. "This was amazing to actually enshrine in your non-discrimination statement — discrimination against Christians," he said.

Alan Brownstein, a law professor at the school, provides more insight into why the school backed down:

"It's always preferable to be as general as you can when you describe these kinds of unacceptable behaviors."

Educrats can avoid inconvenient scrutiny if they use vague, lofty-sounding rules to methodically eradicate anything moonbats don't like, while quietly neglecting to apply the rules to their allies.
