Here is a quote from her letter: “I understand that religion is a major part of your life.” “However, this field is not the place for religion. We have many patients who come to us for treatment from many different religions and some who believe in nothing. If you interview in the future, you may want to leave your thoughts and beliefs out of the interview process.”
The only thing Jenkins had said about his faith, was, when he was asked what was most important in his life, he simply replied, “My God.” A few recommendation letters also mentioned his faith. Jenkins is now suing the college and is represented by the American Center for Law and Justice.
Since there were other valid reasons to reject Jenkins, there was no need for the program director to use his religion as a negative. It’s completely improper that it was considered at all in the admission decision. However, the director’s bluntness tells us a great deal about the arrogance of atheists in academia. The left believes it can bully Christians without consequence – and too often, they get away with this sort of discrimination. I hope this lawsuit sends a strong message to colleges everywhere.
