Sonoma State is up to its neck in political correctness--and Audrey Jarvis has the jewelry to prove it. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Making a fashion statement wasn't the point of Audrey Jarvis's cross necklace. Making a statement of faith was. So when her college supervisor told her to take it off, she refused. The necklace, said the school official, was "off-putting" and wearing it, he said, might be offensive. "I was [the one who was offended]," said Audrey, "and felt [like] the university's mission statement-which includes tolerance and inclusivity for all--was violated." When the supervisor wouldn't back down, Audrey called Liberty Institute, who said the school profusely apologized. The good news is, Audrey isn't backing down. In fact, this whole controversy's only made her more outspoken about their faith. "We need to band together as Christians and fight back," she said. And with students like Audrey are leading the charge, the only thing the Left'll be crossing is their fingers.
