NEW YORK — There's a new religion exploding on the campuses of American universities and colleges, says Thomas Cooley professor of ethical leadership at New York University, Jonathan Haidt. And if it isn't stopped, it might just be better to shut them all down in the next 10 or 20 years.
The religion of fundamental social justice sweeping across college campuses is so alarming, intense, and dripping with such extreme liberal fundamentalism, says Haidt, it has created an existential crisis for American academia while punishing heretics with public shame.
"There is an extremely intense, fundamental social justice religion that's taking over, not all students, but a very strong [space] of it, at all our colleges and universities. They are prosecuting blasphemy and this is where we are," Haidt warned an audience about the religion at a lecture billed "The American University's New Assault on Free Speech," organized by the Manhattan Institute in New York City this week. more >>

When it comes to swaying New Yorkers to boycott Chick-fil-A restaurants within the city because of the company's Christian-owners' stance on homosexuality and gay marriage, it appears that Mayor Bill de Blasio's goose is cooked.
Despite the mayor urging New Yorkers to avoid Chick-fil-A restaurants in the city last week, the popular fast-food chain's two Manhattan locations are bustling with business and are seeing long lines that snake around the block, reports FoxNews Insider.
The Christian-owned chicken chain has been so successful in the Empire State that it plans to open 12 new locations over the next year. more >>
New York City megachurch pastor, A.R. Bernard, warned Thursday that the prosperity gospel is a false and dangerous concept and anyone who wants to test its validity should look no further than presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Bernard who leads the 37,000-member Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, New York, doled out his advice on the controversial theology last Thursday during an interview on New York's Power 105.1 morning radio program, The Breakfast Club, about his new book "Four Things Women Want from a Man."
The book, he said, is about his journey to become a "man of maturity, decisiveness, consistency and strength." more >>
