In the latest absurd news to come from liberal college campuses, a group of librarians at Simmons College in Boston have declared that saying God bless you when someone sneezes is Islamophobic.
The group has created the Anti-Oppression Library Guide, which also dictates that saying Merry Christmas or Happy Easter is an act of Islamomisic microaggression.
Islamomisic Microaggressions are commonplace verbal or behavioral indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicates hostile, derogatory, or negative slights in relation to the beliefs and religious practices of Muslims, the librarians argue. They are structurally based and invoke oppressive systems of religious/Christian hierarchy.
The group claims that Christian fragility is to blame for these microaggressions.
They also argue that Christians suffer from Christian fragility and may become angry, hostile, or defensive during conversations about religion, speculating that this happens because Christians lack skills for constructive engagement with [religious] difference due to the fact they are the dominant religious group, Campus Reform reports.
Perhaps someone should ask the librarians about the last time that a Christian shot someone for drawing their prophet or drove a truck into a non-Christian holiday market since they want to talk about religious-based anger and hostility.
The guide also contains a TED Talk in which Melissa Boigon argues that there is nothing violent or anti-American about Sharia law.
Saying God Bless You When Someone Sneezes is Islamophobic, According to Librarians at a Massachusetts College
These people are edging towards the notion that any public expression of Christian belief - no matter how trivial or secularized - is a crime.
How come nothing is EVER Christ-aphobic? Any one besides me wonder about that?
Wasn’t that Beotch on the View Christ-aphobic when she said Pence was mentally ill if he listened for Christ to speak to him?
Double standards are the only standards the left has.
If a Moose-limb sneezes, can I say God Dam* You?
Because that is who we are. We are Jesus accepting Christians because that is the only way to eternal life. Moslems , like all non believers,GO TO HASDES,(oblivion) GET OUT!! May God Bless ALL Christians.

That’s exactly what I said right out loud when I saw that headline.
If you are not ‘Islamophobic,’ you don’t know enough about Islam..
Political correctness is the tool of tyrants. Just tell those who object to what you say that they matter not.
No, it's a dancercize college ...
Horse hockey! It’s my 1A right to say ‘God Bless You’, or as my dad used to say:’gesunheit’.
Do they identify “Inshalla” (sp), a common Muslim expression usually translated into English as “God Willing” as “Christophobic” (new word)?
In fact, do these awoke social justice warriors identify any words or phrases that might be offensive to persons of any other religion EXCEPT Islam?
Yeah, I thought so.
The only species of fragility being demonstrated here is the snowflake variety, Muslim suborder.
But I thought that THEY said that its the same God!
The only way that it would be Islamophbic is if the following is true:
According to the Quran
Allah has no son, isnt male or female.
According to the New Testament of the Bible
The God Elohim of Israel is male and fathered a son from the virgin Mary
- Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Therefore, the Biblical New Testament Christian God of Israel worshiped by Christians IS NOT NOR CAN BE the Allah worshiped by followers of Islam.
I think they are having cake and not sharing one bit!
So, of a muzzie sneezes, saying “May a thousand camels defecate on you” is A-OK?
Seems muslims are Christianphobic.
I said “Allahu akbar” once when a person sneezed, and everyone ducked for cover.
