Wheaton college plans to fire an African American professor this week who last month wrote on her Facebook Page that Christians and Muslims believe in the same God. The censorship reflects the degradation of Christianity among Americans

A lot of people wonder what would happen to Jesus if he lived in today’s world. I know one thing. They wouldn’t allow him to enroll at Wheaton College in Illinois, where any Christian-like gestures to “Muslims” are greeted with severe punishment.
Wheaton College in Illinois (not Massachusetts) is a religious institution founded by Wesleyans, who are an evangelical Protestant religious group, which traces its heritage to John Wesley. Wesley is the founder of the Methodist movement, which came out of the Church of England in the mid-1700s.
Last month, an African American Christian professor at Wheaton College, Larycia Hawkins, posted a statement on her Facebook Page showing support for Muslims who were being victimized by racism in America. Many Americans wrongly blame all Muslims for the acts of extremists who unjustifiably claim authority to speak for Islam.
