College divided on Muslim support gesture
by Marwa Eltagouri
If Wheaton College professor Larycia Hawkins had simply donned a headscarf in support of Muslims without explaining herself, she may have administered final exams last week.
Instead, Hawkins, a tenured political science professor at the private evangelical Christian college, proclaimed on social media that Christians and Muslims share the same God, prompting the college to suspend her.
"I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book," she posted Dec. 10 on Facebook. "And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God."
