‘Christian Privilege’ Training Disappears From University Website
George Washington University deleted Tuesday an advertisement for a “Christian privilege” workshop featured on its website.
The university embarked on a mass deletion campaign, trashing the “Christian privilege” training, along with 14 others on cisgender, heterosexual, and able-body privilege, reported Campus Reform.
“How do Christians in the USA experience life in an easier way than non-Christians?” the description read. “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?”
George Washington University’s multicultural student services center planned to host the 90-minute event Thursday. It is unclear whether the event will still occur.
“Participants will be able to describe what is meant by privilege overall and white privilege specifically,” the school claimed on its training page. They will also apparently be able “to describe the role of denial when it comes to white privilege,” “list at least three examples of Christian privilege,” “differentiate between equality and equity,” and “list at least three ways to be an ally with a non-Christian person.”
