This isn’t political correctness run amok, it’s leftist academia pushing its anti-Christian agenda on the rest of society.

(Fox News Radio/Todd Starnes)More than two dozen Christian students at the University of California at Davis have filed a formal complaint over a university policy that defines religious discrimination as Christians oppressing non-Christians.

The definition is listed in a document called, “The Principles of Community.” It defines “Religious/Spiritual Discrimination” as “The loss of power and privilege to those who do not practice the dominant culture’s religion. In the United States, this is institutionalized oppressions toward those who are not Christian.”

“This is radical political correctness run amok,” said David French, senior counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund. The conservative advocacy group has written a letter on behalf of more than 25 students who object to the policy and want it revised. He said it’s absurd to single out Christians as oppressors and non-Christians as the only oppressed people on campus.

A spokesperson for UC-Davis directed comments about “The Principles of Community” to Raheem Reed, an associate executive vice chancellor. Reed did not return numerous phone calls.

“Christians deserve the same protections against religious discrimination as any other students on a public university campus,” French told Fox News Radio. “The idea that a university would discriminate against Christians is a very old story unfortunately and one that we see played out every day.”

One student, who asked not to be identified, said university officials asked her to reaffirm “The Principles of Community” last semester. She refused to do so when she realized that Christians were not protected under the policy.

While you’re at it, check out their definition of racism.

The institutionalization of collective prejudice resulting in a system of advantage based on one race having power over others. In the United States, it is the systematic oppression of people of color by white people.

This is what leftist academia is indoctrinating America’s youth with. Might be a good idea to debrief your kids when they come home from school before any of this garbage sinks in and takes hold.

Thanks to Margaret for a great catch.
