A Sonoma State University student has filed a religious accommodation request after she said she was ordered to remove her cross necklace because it might offend other students.

“It’s amazing in this day of diversity and tolerance on university campuses that a university official would engage in this type of obvious religious discrimination,” said Liberty Institute attorney Hiram Sasser.

The Liberty Institute is representing Audrey Jarvis, 19, a liberal arts major at the northern California university.

On June 27, Jarvis was working for the university’s Associated Students Productions at a student orientation fair for incoming freshmen. During the event, her supervisor directed her to remove the cross necklace.

Sasser said the supervisor told her that the chancellor had a policy against wearing religious items and further explained “that she could not wear her cross necklace because it might offend others, it might make incoming students feel unwelcome, or it might cause incoming students to feel that ASP was not an organization they should join.”

When Obama was at Georgetown he had a symbol with the name of Jesus taken down among other things. Obama had a cross removed from an military installation overseas recently. Evidently separation of church and state only applies to Christians. Its time to listen to the Apostle Paul and fight the fight of faith.

People should keep their religious bullshit to themselves.

All this comes down to one thing.
Discrimination to Us citizens, and being politically correct to the Muslims. A Jew would never ask anything like that.
An atheist and a Muslim would.
These universities need to stand up for what's right, but all they are doing is caving to the idiots, giving in to their demands. Persistence is their specialty. They're relentless, till they cave. Then they stick another feather in their burka/towel.
Having to spend money on a lawyer for such a non issue is obnoxious.
I would suggest before attending any institution, they check out the RULES AND REGULATIONS.......ASK QUESTIONS.....
