– Includes large signing bonuses to those with deep indifference (or hostility) toward religious beliefs
YEP, THAT’S HER (?). THIS EPISODE IS FROM DECEMBER 2016, FULFILLING GEORGETOWN’S “MISSION”:
“…the university was founded on the principle that serious and sustained discourse among people of different faiths, cultures, and beliefs promotes intellectual, ethical and spiritual understanding…”
A professor at Georgetown University went into an unbelievable foul-mouthed meltdown that lasted 31 days after a Muslim ex-colleague said she voted for Donald Trump.
C Christine Fair, an associate professor at the Center for Peace and Security Studies, was incensed after Asra Q Nomani, ‘lifelong liberal’, wrote an article about voting for Donald Trump as a Muslim immigrant.
Georgetown is a Catholic and Jesuit, student-centered research university.
“Established in 1789 in the spirit of the new republic, the university was founded on the principle that serious and sustained discourse among people of different faiths, cultures, and beliefs promotes intellectual, ethical and spiritual understanding. We embody this principle in the diversity of our students, faculty and staff, our commitment to justice and the common good, our intellectual openness and our international character.
“An academic community dedicated to creating and communicating knowledge, Georgetown provides excellent undergraduate, graduate and professional education in the Jesuit tradition for the glory of God and the well-being of humankind.Georgetown educates women and men to be reflective lifelong learners, to be responsible and active participants in civic life and to live generously in service to others.”
What’s a “non-theist”?
Avoiding the Baggage of the Word Atheist https://www.thoughtco.com/definition-of-nontheist-24787 “The label nontheist was created and continues to be used in order to avoid the negative baggage that comes with the label atheist due to the bigotry of so many Christians towards atheists. You might call yourself a nontheist when you know the word atheist will trigger hostility but you are being pressed to declare your belief or nonbelief in God.”Nontheism can be used as an umbrella term covering many attitudes and philosophies about whether or not a god or gods exist. Some people, however, use nontheism a synonym for negative atheism or implicit atheism rather than explicit atheism. In this usage, a nontheist may not have explicitly said, “There is no God,” but rather does not believe there is a God.”
A nontheist sees the God question as insoluble and irrelevant. Nontheists approach the God question from an empirical position, which has so far shown them that it has been impossible to either prove, or disprove the existence of God. A Nontheist considers the god hypothesis as dealing with matters that are unfalsifiable, therefore placing the question outside the realm of human knowledge. Nontheists see the question of debating God’s existence as irrelevant as debating the existence of leprechauns, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Invisible Pink Unicorn, Invisible Garage Dragons, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, etc. (The Urban Dictionary)
