ECU Provost: Hell Yes Students Can Mention God At Ceremonies

The Progressive anti-religious bigotry doesn’t go down well here in the South, including at my alma mater, East Carolina University

(WRAL) The provost at East Carolina University has told chemistry students to disregard instructions from a professor who forbade them from mentioning God during a departmental recognition ceremony Friday.

Eli Hvastkovs, assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry, sent an email to students Thursday with a list of four guidelines for the recognition ceremony that included keeping their statements short, family friendly and “not gross.” Topping the list was an instruction not to thank God.

“I’m sorry about this – and I don’t want to have to outline the reasons why,” Hvastkovs wrote in the email.

I think we know the reasons why: another hardcore Leftist restricting Free Speech along this absurd and complete mule fritters line of “separation of church and state”. Well, Marilyn Sheerer, the provost and assistant vice chancellor for academic affairs, responded with her own email, writing

(Greenville Daily Reflector) “These statements can be your personal expressions and as such the University will only limit these expressions as permitted by applicable First Amendment law,” Sheerer said.

Sheerer explained the university would only prohibit statements that violated state statutes on hate crimes, were disruptive to the campus including inciting a riot, exceeded the word limit or came in after today’s deadline.

She said religious references would not be restricted.

“I regret that, without approval from the appropriate university officials, any other limitations were communicated to you,” she said.

Nice to see some common sense.

    How do you feel about ALLAH now being allowed into a state school? Because he is just around the corner

  2. If someone wants to thank Allah, that is their freedom of religion. I have no problem with that.
