GWU Student Spills Secrets Of ‘Christian Privilege’ Seminar
George Washington University student and Campus Reform correspondent Abigail Marone appeared on “Fox & Friends” Friday to discuss her schools’ seminar on “Christian privilege.”
“I was so happy to be able to attend the event … with a group of conservative Christian students. Unlike our liberal peers would have done to an event they disagreed with — We didn’t protest the event. We didn’t stage a walkout. We didn’t demand it be cancelled,” Marone said. “Instead we attended, we had open ears and we were ready to engage in a dialogue and defend our beliefs.”
“One of the biggest issues discussed at the event was the idea of Christian privilege being extremely similar to the idea of white privilege,” she continued.
“A big problem I had with this was I didn’t understand how something you have no control over, like your skin color could be even comparable to something you have complete autonomy over, like your religion. When I brought this up throughout the event a few times, it was ignored. It was dismissed. And the discussion quickly moved on.”
Marone said the seminar discussed how non-Christians felt unsafe on campus and didn’t have enough options when it came to non-Christian houses of worship.
“That was something I was very confused about,” Marone concluded. “We have never had any instances of violence on campus that have been made public towards non-Christians. An example given was that there weren’t as many worship spaces in the Foggy Bottom area for non-Christians. But to me this seems like a simple supply and demand issue. There are more Christians in the area, so obviously there are going to be more churches.”
