The teachers union contract in Ferndale Public Schools in Oakland County gives “special consideration” to applicants who are of “the non-Christian faith.”
The Michigan Capitol Confidential has this story that illustrates that more and more, the progressives are no longer concealing their agenda – http://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/19913
Regarding promotion to a vacant position, it states on page 22:
Should there be two (2) or more of these applicants with equal qualifications for the position and one (1) or more of these applicants with equal qualifications is a current employee, the current employee with the greatest seniority shall be assigned. Special consideration shall be given to women and/or minority defined as: Native American, Asian American, Latino, African American and those of the non-Christian faith(emphasis added). However, in all appointments to vacant positions, the Board’s decision shall be final.
The war on religion, and in particular Christianity, is very real. Christianity requires self-accountability and emphasizes the individual. This has no place in our brave new world of community, equality, fairness, it takes a village, or any of a myriad of ways in which the progressives denounce the importance of each person.
If you’re a Christian, a conservative (or egads, a Tea Party type), non-union, or any persuasion you can imagine that places the importance of the individual over the collective, than you are the enemy.
No doubt we’ll see a “clarification” issued from the Ferndale School District that this means nothing more than highlighting the fact that the district promotes true equality and fairness in their hiring policies. That the intention is to promote non-denominational practices that don’t show any favoritism toward any group.
Sure. You go with that. When will the day come that you progressives will just own it and wear your beliefs on your sleeve with pride? We’re not quite there yet as the general population still needs a bit more brainwashing to get them to be receptive enough to toss away their liberty willingly.
