Student Hit with ‘Safe Space Complaint’ for Raising Her Hand
by Katherine Timpf April 4, 2016
A student at Edinburgh University in Scotland is claiming that she was hit with a “safe space complaint” because she raised her hand to disagree with something during a student-council meeting.
Imogen Wilson, vice president for academic affairs at the school’s student association, claims that she was also threatened with removal from the meeting over the hand gesture, but ultimately allowed to stay. (Phew!)
According to an article in the Washington Times, Wilson had risen her hand to express disagreement with another student’s resolution proposing a boycott of Israel — which was a problem because the school’s official “Safe Space Policy” forbids “hand gestures which denote disagreement or in any other way indicating disagreement with a point or points being made.”
Yes, seriously. And it gets worse: The hand-raising was not the only thing that got Wilson in trouble during the meeting. Apparently, she also made the mistake of shaking her head disapprovingly — an offense so serious that she was threatened with yet another violation because of it.
At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11

They cannot they cannot handle opinions that differ from their own... I saw a youtube video that said in the 'safe rooms' the woman can blow bubbles, and they play sounds of happy puppies and videos of puppies playing, cookies, play doh, coloring books etc. so they can hide away from the trauma of 'scary ideas'. Lord help us! Gone are the days of a healthy debate of ideas, such things are so scary to young college students they must be treated like infants!

noah: I just wanted to give everybody an update. Things between my wife and I have been good. She hasn't been cold and withdrawn. We are actually putting our house up for sale and we are looking for a new house. God is working on her heart I think. Please
