Happy to say that Augsburg College stands with its Muslim friends

Augsburg University Religion Department

Augsburg College Faculty Resolution in Support of our Muslim Students, Colleagues and Neighbors

Whereas: Divisive and unfounded accusations about the Faith of I...slam and Muslim people everywhere have been widely publicized in our nation and,

Whereas: Some national political leaders have recently made heinous, false, and inflammatory claims about the Faith of Islam and Muslim people in the United States and worldwide and,

Whereas: Such statements represent bigotry, fear mongering and demagoguery that is dangerous to American democracy, undermines efforts to prevent terrorism, sows fear, sadness and distrust within our communities, and incites hate and violence toward peaceful, valued members of our campus and community,

Therefore, the Augsburg College Faculty stands resolved that: statements of prejudice and hate against the Faith of Islam should be condemned and vocally opposed, and moreover, we express our deep support, love and friendship for the Muslim members of our campus, community and world.

--Approved by the Augsburg College faculty, December 10, 2015
