When this happens in the sciences, it’s the same thing only more is at stake:
I entered the PhD philosophy program at Purdue University in 2004. Six weeks in I was shocked that I was receiving prank calls at 3 in the morning from fellow grad students. They were mocking me for my faith. The next semester I recall receiving a permanent note in my file from a Marxist professor who claimed I was schizophrenic. While he was not a clinical psychologist capable of judging me schizophrenic, he believed religion was the opiate of the masses and that my beliefs were delusional.
I tried to be as stealth as possible and keep my head down to graduate. Nonetheless I could not avoid the hostility. While in my fifth year I was sabotaged near the finish line. The atheist director of grad studies found a way to work in tandem with her longtime friend, my adviser, to root me out. I was ABD (“all but dissertation”) with a 3.5 GPA. I completed all course work, languages, exams, and my funding was even from a different department. But my dissertation committee chair informed me that he dropped me. He said it was because I had “too much of a faith perspective.” Never mind the fact that part of my dissertation topic was on the virtue of faith.
I now had no adviser and no legal recourse. If they don’t want to advise a grad student, then they don’t have to. I couldn’t find an adviser willing to touch me. Corey Miller, “I was forced out of my PhD program because of my open faith in Jesus Christ. Here’s my story.” at The College Fix
The question of whether the raging Woke have the right to do this stuff needs to be considered alongside whether anyone should be expected to fund their behavior through taxes or ponder their (increasingly mostly garbage) output—as conveyed to us through government and media.
Another thing: It matters more in the sciences because so much science isn’t just rubbish anyway. The Woke right to rule with no qualifications whatever apart from the implied threat of violence will most likely mean the suppression of good evidence and the promotion of Woke rubbish.
Miller, as he goes on to explain, later became president of a Christian thinktank dedicated to punching back twice as hard, which may be wise under the circumstances. Read the story.
