Wheaton Professor "Stands In Solidarity With Muslims"

A tenured Wheaton College professor who, as part of her Christian Advent devotion, donned a traditional headscarf to show solidarity with Muslims has been placed on administrative leave.
Larycia Hawkins, a political science professor at the private evangelical Christian college in Chicago's west suburbs, announced last week that she would wear the veil to show support for Muslims who have been under greater scrutiny since mass shootings in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif.
"I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book," she posted on Facebook...
She said in a Tribune interview that it's "a time of real vitriolic rhetoric by fellow Christians sometimes and people who aren't Christian who conflate all Muslims with terrorist — and that saddens me — so this is a way of saying if all women wear the hijab we cannot discriminate. If all women were in solidarity, who is the real Muslim? How is TSA going to decide who they really suspect?"
While Hawkins did not need to seek approval from Wheaton, she did seek advice from the Council on American Islamic Relations, to make sure she did not offend Muslims. 
My thoughts as I responded to this:
CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator with Hamas. See this is what I mean--ignoramuses are doing the job of CAIR and Islam---Muslims don't have to even lift a finger. These foolish people happily do the work themselves. One day, though, they will be victims of Islam. Btw, it's easy for a Western feminist to drop in and then out of wearing a hijab b/c she's not forced to. How nice for her. In Islam women have no choice but to wear it (or worse, the burka). That's like these liberal "Christians" who jet into a 3rd world country to experience life's hardship for a few weeks, and then jet back out to live in an expensive city. It's trivial and insulting and ignores the actual plight of people under such oppression. This American Feminist professor would never make it living in a Muslim country for a week. She defends what she's not forced to live under.
She's an ignoramus and has no clue that she is the epitome of what Islam hates. She's a traitor to Christ too. Unlike people who claim Muslims have a partially correct view of God, Scripture states that if they deny God the Son, they have neither the Father nor the Son, not to mention having a false gospel also condemns them to Hell.
That Wheaton professor is more concerned about not offending Muslims who hate Christ, than she is about offending Christ Jesus and real Christians. Wheaton wasn't against her decision, btw.
Wheaton isn't a Christian school. It's a religious school with a statement of faith they don't even give a rip about. They did not denounce what she's done (or said, it seems), although they put her on "administrative leave".This again bears witness to my contention that if one claims a set of beliefs are biblical, then they are by nature and definition, not optional, not a theory, and not an opinion, but biblical truth that MUST be held to. But today most schools and churches see what they would call "biblical doctrine" (IF they even dare call it that), as a personal preference, not absolute and undeniable Truth.
"Gene Green, a professor of the New Testament at Wheaton, said what motivated Hawkins is the same concern many faculty members at the school share about the unfair scrutiny facing the Muslim community.
"Dr. Hawkins and others want to follow the example of Jesus, who went to those who were discriminated against," he said. "He ate with people whom others rejected. Jesus calls us to love our neighbors, and the Muslims are our neighbors."

But Muslims aren't staying in their own country like the poor and out-casts. Muslims are here precisely for hijrah--jihad by invasion. They desire to change our laws and they hate our Lord. That is NOT what happened during Jesus' ministry on earth. Jesus did not hang out with the lawless Christ-haters. In fact it was the Pharisees and Saduccees who rebelled against God's laws, and by the way they also hated the Roman Empire.

While all are sinners and need Christ, we are not called to endorse lawlessness, rebellion against our government, nor be reckless in protecting the family God gave us. Islam by it's very nature wants to destroy it all. We are also not obligated to open up our nation to such treasonous people. That is NOT in Scripture.

2Co 6:14  Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 
2Co 6:15  What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? 
2Co 6:16  What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, "I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 

2Jn 1:9  Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.
