On December 10, just after the massacre in San Bernardino, California, Larycia Hawkins posted a picture of herself on Facebook wearing a hajib. She called it part of her advent worship. Hawkins began her post saying, “I don’t love my Muslim neighbor because s/he is American. I love my Muslim neighbor because s/he deserves love by virtue of her/his human dignity.”
Now Wheaton College is beginning the process to fire her… because apparently expressing love for one’s neighbors – if they follow a different religion – offends them.
It would appear Wheaton’s leaders are totally unfamiliar with Jesus Christ’s parable of the good Samaritan.
