    Seriously. Have you been to any university? There are thousands of rules put in place for stupid reasons that will inconvenience you where ever you go. The no-religious-accessory rule is just one of them. It's not personal. It's just really dumb.

    Yeah, double-fudge-on-top have fun with that. The chickpea bureaucrats are hired for extremely simple tasks (the white collar equivalent of "pick up that box and put it over there"). They're never going to think outside the box very well, so the thought "Religious accessories might offend someone? Ban them all!" is a very natural conclusion for them to arrive at.

Now, I know it first-hand and it sickens me and saddens me" and “We need to band together as Christians and fight back." which are words more suitable for religion being banned outright or Christians being rounded up into concentration camps rather than because of some little idiot banning religious accessories. Typical Christian hysteria.
    The "Christian hysteria" (as you have labeled their reaction) isn't simply about a student wearing one little cross_

    "Christian hysteria" is actually the result of decades of relentless attacks by the far-left on anything remotely Christian in an effort to eradicate it from as much of western civilization as possible_

    The Progressive/Socialist/Marxist/Communist ideology considers religion its enemy and an obstacle to its Utopian Dream, particularly Christianity since the rise of the American Progressive Movement_

    Let's not be too unfair. They do allow at least one religious symbol on campus. http://www.muslimahsource.org/activi...meena-jandali/
