James Madison U. Tells Students 35 Things They Should Never Say

Nowadays, when students first start at college, they find they have a lot to unlearn.

The modern progressive campus is a completely different world from what they -- and everyone else familiar with rational behavior -- are used to living in.

Luckily, James Madison University has stepped in to help:

Student leaders of this year’s freshman orientation at James Madison University were given a list of 35 things they should avoid saying, including phrases such as “you have such a pretty face,” “love the sinner, hate the sin,” “we’re all part of the human race,” “I treat all people the same,” “it was only a joke,” “I never owned slaves,” and “people just need to pick themselves up by their bootstraps,” among other expressions.

Those phrases and others on the list “widen the diversity gap” and do not “create a safe and inclusive environment,” according to the seven-page handout, a copy of which was provided to The College Fix by a campus spokesman.

Oy vey!

(Ed. note: "Oy vey" probably gets you expelled.)

Seriously -- when "I treat all people the same" is a problem, it's time to get your money back and take your kid home. Because your kid is not going to be treated like a person there, but like a stereotyped identity.

Seriously -- don't put your kid through that.

The truth is that if colleges actually wanted a "safe and inclusive environment," then they must understand a few things. First, you're not being "inclusive" when you tell people who hold certain opinions to keep their mouth shut.

"Love the sinner, hate the sin" is a common mantra among Christians, and it is used to convey the requirement to NOT HATE homosexuals, or anyone else, for crying out loud. People who believe homosexuality is a sin, but that hatred is worse, are being told to keep their mouths shut.
