that an associate-professor is being FIRED for asserting that Christians and Muslims actually worship the same God (and then for not clarifying the theology behind that statement.)
The private, evangelical Wheaton College claims she made "theological statements that seem inconsistent with Wheaton College's doctrinal convictions, which she voluntarily agreed to support and uphold when she entered into an employment agreement with the college," but NewsMax doesn't quote those statements specifically.
Associate-professor Larycia Hawkins is a Christian, but recently began wearing a hijab (head-dress commonly worn by Muslim women) to counter what she called the recent "vitriolic" rhetoric against Muslims. She told a reporter that her actions are "motivated by a desire to live out [her] faith."
So I guess I'll help her 'carry her cross' (and I hope you'll help too), and come together to reach an agreement. I don't know what context the statement was made-in, so I'm going to assume that students just walked into class one day and saw "Christians & Muslims worship the same God!" written on the board.
I imagine some students immediately 'railed against her' (at-least in their minds), "No! Yahweh gives us a way out, and Allah dooms us if he feels like it!" Who's to say Yahweh DOESN'T doom us, who's to say Allah DIDN'T send us salvation?
It reminds me that ALL religions are Buddhism---literally "following the teachings of one who knows."
