A speaker at a Harvard University conference claims that Jews and Christians should be put in jail merely because they are religious people.
Activist Tim Wise was invited to speak at Harvard’s “FAS Diversity Conference: A Decade of Dialogue,” to be held at the university’s Faculty of Arts & Sciences, this month.
The university described Wise and the event this way:
We are pleased to announce that our keynote speaker will be Tim Wise, prominent anti-racism writer, educator, and activist. A moderated discussion with Tim will be led by Renee Graham, an associate editor and columnist at the Boston Globe.
But the College Fix reported that the “anti-racism” activist has a long history of making bigoted statements against religious Jews and Christians. Outrageously, Wise has called for those who actually believe in the Christian Bible or the Jewish Torah to be “locked up” merely because they are believers.
The College Fix added:
Tim Wise, an “anti-racism writer, educator and activist,” has denigrated Christians as “Jeezoids and fascists and called Pope Francis evil. He has tweeted that “people who believe in a God of hell/damnation deserve to be mocked viciously and run out of the public square.”
Those who base their morality on the Hebrew Scriptures “deserve to be locked up,” he said in 2015, claiming to be “sorta kidding but not by much.”
The Diversity Dialogue Series provides a “retrospective look at diversity and inclusion, a discussion of current issues, and practical guidance on how we can move toward greater inclusion and belonging at Harvard,” according to the event description.
Just to let Wise speak for himself, here is a Facebook post from 2015:
This is America…people basing their beliefs on the fable of Noah and Ark, or their interpretation of Sodom and Gomorrah…rather than science or logic…If you are basing your morality on a fairy tale written thousands of years ago, you deserve to be locked up…detained for your utter inability to deal with reality…NO, we are not obligated to indulge your irrationality in the name of your religious freedom…but we will provide you a very comfortable room, against which walls you may hurl yourself hourly if your choose. Knock yourself out….seriously, knock yourself out, completely, for weeks at a time…I’m sorta kidding but not by much…I don’t believe lunatics like this should be locked up, but I do think they have to be politically destroyed, utterly rendered helpless to the cause of pluralism and democracy …the world is not theirs. They have no right to impose their bullshit on others. They can either change, or shut the hell up, or practice their special brand of crazy in their homes…or go away. Their choice. And this argument applies to any fundamentalist religionist of any faith who thinks they have a right to impose their beliefs on a secular, pluralistic society. Go away.
This is the despicable hater that Harvard thought was a wonderful speaker about “diversity.”
Once again we see how our system of “higher education” hates Christians and the American way of life.
