    College librarians argue Christians who say 'God bless you' are Islamophobic

    College librarians argue Christians who say 'God bless you' are Islamophobic

    If you’ve ever wished someone a “Merry Christmas” or said “God bless you” when someone sneezes, you’ve committed an act of “Islamomisic microaggressions,” according to college librarians at a Massachusetts college.

    The Anti-Oppression Library Guide at Simmons College in Boston is a collaborative effort among the school’s librarians, reported CampusReform.org.

    “Islamomisic Microaggressions are commonplace verbal or behavioral indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicates hostile, derogatory, or negative slights in relation to the beliefs and religious practices of Muslims,” the librarians argue. “They are structurally based and invoke oppressive systems of religious/Christian hierarchy.”

    A spokesperson told Fox News the guide is not a policy of Simmons College.

    “The information in this guide is an introductory resource intended to provide general information about anti-oppression, diversity, and inclusion,” the statement read. “It is by no means a complete guide to social justice issues, religions, conversations or points of view.”

    As disclaimer, the guide adds, “We are not immune from the limits and hidden biases of our own privileges and perspectives as allies. We welcome and greatly appreciate any feedback and suggestions for the guide, particularly from the perspectives and experiences of the marginalized groups listed and not listed here.”

    The librarians argue Christians are especially guilty of Islamomisic microaggressions for using phrases like “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Easter,” and “God bless you.”

    Some other microaggressions aimed at Muslims include “endorsing religious stereotypes,” such as viewing hijabs as fashionable, suggesting Muslims practice the “wrong” religion, and having “the assumption of one’s own religious identity as the norm.”

    The controversial resource argues “people who follow Christianity have institutionalized power,” or “Christian privilege,” which is demonstrated when they “expect to have time off work to celebrate religious holidays” or worship without fear of violence or threats.

    The guide also argues that Christians suffer from “Christian fragility” and may become angry, hostile, or defensive during conversations about religion because Christians lack the skills for constructive engagement with other religions.

    “Within this dominant social environment, Christians come to expect social comfort and a sense of belonging and superiority,” the librarians write. “They may become defensive, positioning themselves as victims of anti-Islamomisic work and co-opting the rhetoric of violence to describe their experiences of being challenged on religious privilege.”

    The page features a TED talk by Melissa Boigon, where she said Islamophobia has turned into a fear of Arabs and not Islam itself. Boigon stated there is nothing “violent or anti-American” about sharia law.

    “Islam is a religion of peace,” Boigon said. “Muslims did not kill Americans on 9/11. A very small extremist group that can barely gain any footing, even in the most conservative Muslim circles committed heinous crimes on 9/11. Islam is a religion of peace.”

    The guide also links to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which lists Fox News Channel as an “Islamophobic Organization.”

    the librarians need to complete their sex change operations. They have a piss-poor attitude with the increased dosage of hormones.

    I'm an Atheist.........

    ......and when a Christian says "Merry Christmas" to me or "God Bless You" to me...........I smile and say either Merry Christmas back to them ............or in the case of the latter, I just say thank you in reply to their God bless............

    .........now if a Muslim would say "Peace be upon your head......and upon Mohammad his servant".......I would smile back and then walk away and think what an idiot......

    Why?

    Well....Christianity fits quite well into the culture and society of which this country grew in its traditional identity.....

    Islam?..............forget it.

    Because that religion comes with their moderate believers smiling faces and then..............when they become the majority its to hell with all infidels..........and by then its too late to do anything about their back door scheme to change our culture......

    Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all Abrahamic religions based off the same God.
    Christianity was an offshoot of Judaism, and Islam was an offshoot of both.
    Also Allah is just the arabic word for God.
    Say God bless you, Merry Christmas, Inshalla. Happy Eid Mubarak, Shalom, Good Shabbat, Shabbat shalom, Blessed Yule, etc. etc etc., whatever the hell you want.
    If you say it or return it with good intentions, then it's cool and good no matter who you are.
    Snowflakey librarians be damned.
    Don't need no stinking word or thought police. Police what people say and you ARE the thought police.

    Microaggressions... Whomever came up with that concept needs a good beatdown to demonstrate what aggression is. Then they need their latte loving, safe space hiding, dumbass air dropped into Afghanistan wearing a goat disguise.

    In colleges, yes, because the "awardwinningbecause I showed up" snowflakes come in as Freshmen not knowing how to use a library. They don't know how to find a book, or how to research. They have to take a class that teaches them how to use a library. No lie.
    Public libraries are becoming automated.

    Heck, as it has been pointed out in the past, if it wasn't for Christians being tolerantly "Christian", a whole lot of people and groups would have something to really worry about, particularly if they behaved like the Salafists towards other beliefs...

    So how much further does the pendulum have to swing before gravity overcomes momentum?...

    The key word there is COLLEGE.

    Damn places need to be bulldozed and their faculties and administrators left buried in the rubble.

    Most librarians have always been liberal to some degree but over the decades it has become absolutely poisonous.

    Sometimes I like a little microaggression.
    Would outright shunning be more acceptable?
    What comes next...I won't discuss on a public forum

    What pisses me off about the charge of "islamophobia:" Phobia implies a fear. To call me islamophobic is inaccurate. Disdain (spell?), disgust...hatred, would be a better description.

    Perhaps the librarians would prefer "Burn in hell." Just to be sure there were no microaggressions.

    now let's not trash the religious college librarians, lol

    Brigham Young and Bob Jones might take exception

    tho they are the remnant now they do still exist and usually smaller campuses

    God bless you is now a microaggression? Next time someone sneezes round you, be sure to offer a blessing for their good health

    in a library or not!

    Saying "God bless you" when someone sneezes is medieval superstition in action, but the statement is so ingrained into our collective psyches that it's absolutely Pavlovian to most people. I make a concerted effort to NOT say it, and if someone says it to me, my response is, "Begone demons!" followed by a humorous explanation of why I said that.

    IMO that librarian was "educated" beyond their ability to discern propaganda from on-the-ground reality........yesh.............let the pea-brain meet a real muzzie with bloodlust and they'll cry "where's my safe place?" and it'll be too late

    Obviously, "The Guide" is SJW BS... Has the author of "the guide" ever tried to have "constructive engagement" about another religion with a Wahhabi or Salafist?

    No... "Phobia" implies an IRRATIONAL fear...

    Does an IRRATIONAL fear of Islam really fit the definition?

    It has nothing to do with education - but everything to do with indoctrination. I worked a full career as a librarian (starting in 1975), in university/academic, state/government, federal/government and military libraries (including the school library of the US Army school which teaches psychological operations). The indoctrination starts in elementary school with SJW teachers and goes on for 12 years there, by the time the little darlings get into college they are already protomarxists.

    Don't forget - liberalism is a mental disorder.

    I know that I shouldn't be shocked by anything like this anymore, but I guess I can't help still being floored by the levels of utter stupidity that this world is sinking to. I'm not sure how many times I screamed "WHAT?!" at my screen while reading this.

    So, basically, the conclusion here is: If you're an individual, with any kind of defining thoughts or characteristics--other than blue hair or weird body mutilations--you're gonna screw somebody's feelings just by being alive. Got it. Well, I'm off to go make some collegians cry now.

    Various groups of people have been saying "Merry Christmas" and "God bless you" long before any of them became infected with Muslims.

    What about "Allahu Akbar"? - that's about as anti-everybody who's not Muslim people can get.

    And the only time we hear it is when they are blowing us up!
