    This is like something out of a movie about a dystopian future. What about a Bible is cause for a call to the bias hotline?

    The College Fix reports:

    George Mason U. professor finds Bible, reports it to ‘bias’ hotline

    In November 2019, a George Mason University professor stumbled upon a Bible and an accompanying CD in her classroom. The professor collected the items and immediately reported the items to the school’s Bias Incident Reporting Team, which classified the episode as “discrimination” and “harassment” against “religion.”

    The professor accompanied her report with photographs of the Bible, and the items were collected by the Bias Team.

    The incident was one of 12 filed with the school’s bias reporting website between January 1, 2019 and January 1, 2020 and obtained by The College Fix through an open records law request. The documents provided by the university were redacted to protect the privacy of students involved.

    The reports were obtained as The Fix continues to investigate the types of complaints that are lodged through bias response teams at college campuses across the nation. Nearly two dozen universities have been included in the investigation so far since it launched in 2019.

    According to George Mason’s Campus Climate website, students and professors are encouraged to report and “act of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, violence or criminal offense committed against any person, group or property that appears to be motivated by prejudice or bias.”

    According to the school, “bias” could mean “negative feelings and beliefs with respect to others race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age social class, political affiliation, disability, veteran status, club affiliation or organizational membership.”

    This sounds like a great opportunity for an organization like the Gideons – start carpet bombing campuses with bibles, watch liberal heads explode.

      That’s rich. Imagine hundreds of years from now in history books about the culture war of the 21st century reading a chapter on the Gideon offensive and its bloody aftermath.

    I wonder whether a report would have been made if someone had found a Koran in a classroom.
