Jones’ comments prompted university president Susan Herbst to issue a statement to the Courant, saying staff members at the public university must not take sides on the theological front.
“It should go without saying that our employees cannot appear to endorse or advocate for a particular religion or spiritual philosophy as part of their work at the university, or in their interactions with our students,” she said. “This applies to work-related activity anywhere on or off campus, including on the football field.”
In other words, “Keep your shameful religion in the closet where it belongs, Christer.” Does anyone doubt for a moment he would have not have lost his job if he had said “Christians suck?”
And the whole notion that a public employee speaking affirmatively about his faith is tantamount to the State establishing a religion is another bit of secularist insaniy; no one anywhere has ever been forced to change their religion because they saw a creche on a courthouse lawn.
The coach is African-American, but his race was no defense against the “micro-aggression” of professing his faith openly. So, in the courts of political correctness, anti-Christian trumps African-American. The left loathes it when Christian athletes profess their faith openly. Look at what happened to Tim Tebow.
