LTRP Note: In this sad state of affairs, in many ways, Wheaton College has brought this situation upon themselves by promoting, endorsing, and encouraging the “new” “progressive” Christianity for quite some time. Because the “fruit” of contemplative prayer and the emerging church is interspirituality, it only makes sense that such colleges will have professors (and students) who become interspiritual.

WHEATON, Ill. — A prominent Christian-identified university in Illinois has suspended an associate political science director after she posted photos of herself wearing an Islamic hijab this past week, stating that she was doing so to show solidarity with Muslims.
