Christianity is becoming more and more politically incorrect in public universities as we’ve seen time and time again. In this instance, a 19 year-old Sonoma State University student named Audrey Jarvis was asked to remove her cross necklace while working for the university because it might offend potential incoming students. But Jarvis refused and ended up leaving her job early that day. In order to continue wearing it, she had to seek a religions accommodation

University Tells Student to Remove Cross Necklace | FOX News & Commentary: Todd StarnesA Sonoma State University student was ordered to remove a cross necklace by a supervisor who thought other students might find it offensive, in a case that prompted even one campus official to speculate that “political correctness got out of hand.”
Audrey Jarvis, 19, a liberal arts major at the northern California university, said she had no choice but to seek a “religious accommodation” in order to wear the cross. Her lawyer said she deserves an apology, and the school seems ready to oblige.
“It’s amazing in this day of diversity and tolerance on university campuses that a university official would engage in this type of obvious religious discrimination,” said Hiram Sasser, an attorney with Liberty Institute, which is representing Jarvis.
Jarvis was working for the university’s Associated Students Productions at a June 27 student orientation fair for incoming freshmen when her supervisor told her to remove the two-inch-long cross necklace, according to Sasser.
Sasser said the supervisor told her that the chancellor had a policy against wearing religious items and further explained “that she could not wear her cross necklace because it might offend others, it might make incoming students feel unwelcome, or it might cause incoming students to feel that ASP was not an organization they should join.”
so what is next are they going to go back and start throwing Christians to the lions?
would the university asked a female Muslim student to remove her head scarf?
why is the Christians faith allowed to be ridiculed and persecuted but you better not even think about disrespecting the Muslim faith?
