Professor finds Bible in classroom — then notifies school’s Bias Incident Reporting Team about it

Bible-carrying students and staff at George Mason University, take heed: You might not want to leave your copies of the Good Book sitting in classrooms unattended — because their very presence just might get documented by your school’s Bias Incident Reporting Team.

I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

So it’s like this: In November 2019, a professor found a Bible and an accompanying CD in her classroom, the College Fix reported.

Apparently unable or unwilling to put them aside for the owner to pick up later, the professor gathered the items and then reported them to the school’s Bias Incident Reporting Team, the outlet said.

And how did the Bias Incident Reporting Team respond? The Fix said the team classified the incident as “discrimination” and “harassment” against “religion.”

Seemingly to shore up her case, the professor included photographs of the Bible in her report, the outlet said, adding that the Bias Incident Reporting Team collected the items in question. The outcome of the report wasn’t made clear.

More from the Fix:

The incident was one of 12 filed with the school’s bias reporting website between January 1, 2019 and January 1, 2020 and obtained by The College Fix through an open records law request. The documents provided by the university were redacted to protect the privacy of students involved.

The reports were obtained as The Fix continues to investigate the types of complaints that are lodged through bias response teams at college campuses across the nation. Nearly two dozen universities have been included in the investigation so far since it launched in 2019.

According to George Mason’s Campus Climate website, students and professors are encouraged to report and “act of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, violence or criminal offense committed against any person, group or property that appears to be motivated by prejudice or bias.”

According to the school, “bias” could mean “negative feelings and beliefs with respect to others race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age social class, political affiliation, disability, veteran status, club affiliation or organizational membership.”

The outlet said a George Mason spokesperson didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about the Bible incident.

Anything else?

The Fix noted a September 2019 incident involving a communications professor who allegedly asked a student to give up an accommodation that allowed late submissions of completed assignments. The student said the professor made him or her feel “very unsafe” because the professor implied the student was “taking advantage of disability services,” the outlet said.

Then the professor allegedly asked the student about the nature of the special accommodation, after which the student said it’s “not something that I feel comfortable sharing,” the Fix noted.

“She also pulled my [study] partner out of the room and tried to pressure her into making me present,” the student added, according to the outlet. “My partner currently has a concussion, and the professor claimed that she was faking.”

According to the Fix, the student also said “this teacher has a pattern of discrimination which goes against George Mason’s code of ethics” and “is not a safe person to have in the classroom.”

2020 presidential election Anti-conservative Bias against conservatives college students Donald Trump Intelwars Left-wing professors Republican minorities watch

Pro-Trump minority students: Despite attacks by campus leftists, bias from professors, our conservative values are strong

A group of minority college students who are voting for President Donald Trump in Tuesday’s election told Campus Reform that despite attacks from leftist groups on campus and bias against conservatives in the classroom, their values are steadfast — because being conservative is the best path toward liberty and freedom.

What are the details?

University of Utah student Seodam Kwak told the outlet what all of us already knew — that colleges far and wide are pushing left-wing values and that it’s become “almost an indoctrination process.”

Kwak — vice chair of the the Utah Federation of College Republicans — told Campus Reform he’s seen more than his share of “oppression from left-wing student groups,” including intimidation tactics, bullying, vandalism, and name-calling.

But he added that the harassment he and his fellow GOP students have endured paints a stark contrast between leftists and conservatives.

“The Republicans are the ones who really judge a person upon the characteristics that you’re not inherently born with,” Kwak explained, noting “so basically your character and the choices you’ve made in life” — and not the color of your skin.

“Clearly, my race shouldn’t have anything to do with that,” he added to the outlet, noting, “We don’t see color. We absolutely don’t. And I think that is the epitome of anti-racism.”

Other students spoke of anxieties while attending classes.

“There’s always this slight fear of, if I say this or if I write this in my paper, and the teacher doesn’t agree with me, I could get a bad grade on this paper,” University of Chicago senior Gerrin Alexander told Campus Reform. “Which affects my grade in the class, which affects my GPA and my standing for where I want to go for grad school, et etcetera. It’s like a whole chain effect.”

Still, she said, she still believes in “individualism.”

Christopher Gaffrey, a senior at Wayne State University in Michigan, told the outlet that he recognizes that professors do have biases and that said that “when I went to class, I did not talk about [my conservatism].”

He also said he observed when he went to classes that had nothing to do with politics that “they [would] start talking about … certain ideas that kind of align with, like, a communist, or they align and say how evil Trump is.”
