Christian college called racist for suspending black professor who said Muslims worship ‘same God’

Larycia Hawkins might have thought that wearing a Muslim headscarf for the rest of Advent would be the most controversial thing she did this term.

The associate professor of political science at Wheaton College, an evangelical school near Chicago, wrote a long Facebook post Dec. 10 explaining her decision in terms of “human solidarity” with Muslims.

But only one sentence mattered, for Wheaton’s purposes: “We worship the same God.”

The school put Hawkins, a faculty member for eight years, on administrative leave after her post went viral.

That sparked a petition demanding the school apologize and reinstate her, “the only black female professor who is tenured,” using the hashtag #ReinstateDocHawk.

Wheaton students also held a protest against the school’s decision Wednesday, but the administration has stood firm.
