Prof. Kreeft, call your office

Coming to a nuns' order near you???

Bob Smietana, "Wheaton College Suspends Hijab-Wearing Professor After 'Same God' Comment" (CT, Gleanings, December 15, 2015):
A tenured Wheaton College political science professor who pledged to wear a hijab during Advent in support of her Muslim neighbors has been placed on administrative leave. Not for donning the Islamic head covering, but over "significant questions regarding the theological implications" of her explanation of why she was doing so.

... Larycia Alaine Hawkins, an associate professor who has taught at Wheaton since 2007, announced last week that she’d don the traditional headscarf as a sign of human, theological, and embodied solidarity.

“I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book,” she wrote in a Facebook post on December 10. “And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.” (emphasis added)
Evidently evangelicals with a commitment to theological clarity have nowhere as much tolerance for theological ambiguity as many Catholics.

They are also people of Robert Spencer's book, Islam Unveiled: Disturbing Questions About the World's Fastest-Growing Faith. Nobody seems to have read that one.

Get your dhimmitudinous butt in the air, Angela, and veil that ugly mug. Mecca is that way. You too, perfidious Kasper. Pray to Allah for your state stipend, ingrate!
