George Washington University Offering ‘Christian Privilege’ Training

“How do Christians in the USA experience life in an easier way than non-Christians?”

You’ve heard of male privilege and white privilege. Now, there’s Christian privilege.

The Daily Caller reports:

GWU Offering ‘Christian Privilege’ Training For Students And Faculty

George Washington University is offering a free training session to students and faculty who want to learn about their “Christian privilege.”

The session will teach students and faculty that Christians “receive unmerited perks from institutions and systems all across our country” and “experience life in an easier way than non-Christians,” according to the university website.

The training session will take place on Thursday — four days after Christians celebrate Easter — and is available to all students and faculty.

The training session is offered through the university’s Multicultural Student Services Center and is titled: “Christian privilege: but our founding fathers were all Christian, right?!” The center did not return an email seeking comment.

“How do Christians in the USA experience life in an easier way than non-Christians? Even with the separation of Church and State, are there places where Christians have built-in advantages over non-Christians? How do we celebrate Christian identities and acknowledge that Christians receive unmerited perks from institutions and systems all across our country?” the event description reads.

Comments

Oh, yes, the Way of the Cross is a privilege — just not the way these folks define “privilege,” though.
His kingdom is not of this world, and Grace is Amazing.

In an era when colleges in California are throwing Christian groups off campus, to talk of Christian “privilege” on a college campus is ludicrous.

I wonder which Muslim organization is behind this. Hundreds of millions of dollars has poured into our universities from the Saudis and others (many of which are Muslim Brotherhood fronts).

Christians do enjoy a certain amount of privilege in the USA. They do enjoy “built-in advantages over non-Christians” and “receive unmerited perks from institutions and systems all across our country”.

All that means is that the system is set up for the convenience of the majority, and the minority have to adapt to it. Which is exactly as it should be. Every well-designed system is like that, it’s what user-experience designers explicitly strive for.

For an obvious example, think of the privilege enjoyed by right-handed people, or by those with no allergies.

SJWs are not wrong to point out the existence of privilege; they’re wrong to denounce it and demand that the privileged feel guilty for it. But yes, it behooves the beneficiaries of privilege to understand and appreciate this, to be thankful for it and understanding of the minority who don’t have it.
