Christian Student Labelled ‘A Bigot’ For Standing Up For Her Beliefs

A Christian, UC Berkely student senator, is under pressure to resign after abstaining from voting on a recent resolution opposing title IX changes proposed by the Trump administration. This would include defining gender as a biological, immutable condition that would be determined by the genitals a person is born with. Any disputes would be clarified using genetic testing.

Isabella Chow explained in a statement why she could not vote on the resolution due to her Christian beliefs.

“My God is one who assigns immeasurable value to and desires to love each and every human being. In God’s eyes and therefore my own, everyone of you here today and in the LGBTQ+ community as a whole is significant, valid, wanted, and loved — even if and when our views differ. That said, I cannot vote for this bill without compromising my values and my responsibility to the community they elected me to represent them. As a Christian, I personally do believe that certain acts and lifestyles conflict with what is good, right, and true. I believe that God created male and female at the beginning of time, and designed sex for marriage between one man and one woman. For me, to love another person does not mean that I silently concur when, at the bottom of my heart, I do not believe that your choices are right or the best for you as an individual.”

Student Action, the party to which Chow belonged immediately distanced themselves from her statement, saying that there were “inconsistencies between her beliefs” and the party. Meanwhile, student senator Teddy Lake, who introduced the resolution that started it all, was quick to blast his colleague.

“Tonight was a harrowing reminder of the kind of bigotry that persists in contemporary society and, more specifically, sits across from me on the Senate floor,” Lake wrote.

Chow so far is holding strong, even while under intense pressure from LGBT groups, students, a newspaper and of course, the obligatory hatred spewed by twitter. Chow told the College Fix that she refused to resign, despite the hostility.

    This was a good article. Sad but well weitten. The sad part about all of this is that the very thing she is being accused of is the very thing her opponent and his supporters are doing. It’s evident that it is ok for her opponent and his supporters to stand up for what they believe in but it’s not ok for her to stand up for what she believes in.

    Booklet about the city of Berkeley, UC Berkeley a Seat of Christian Learning

    I found a booklet, on a recent trip to the flea market, about the city of Berkeley in 1906. It was published by the California Christian Endeavor Union, which met there July 4th to 8th that year. I was surprised that there was no mention of who they were or what they did. I had to do an online search to find information about them. They were basically a Christian ministry, started in Maine in 1881, for outreach to youth.
    The publication must have been printed prior to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, since there was no mention of it. Damage in Berkeley was not extensive. According to Richard Schwartz, author of “Earthquake Exodus of 1906,” Berkeley was instrumental in helping with the relief efforts in the aftermath.
    The booklet focuses on the history of Berkeley and all it had to offer back in the day. According to the booklet, the population at that time was 25k, and grew from the university, which was there first. On April 16, 1860, the “Trustees of the College dedicated the spot from what is known as “Founders Rock” with a prayer that it might ever remain a seat of Christian learning, a blessing to the youth of this State, and a center of usefulness in all this part of the world. And, in 1866, at the suggestion of Frederick Billings, one of the Trustees ,the name of Berkeley was given to the college home as seeming to fulfill the verse of Bishop Berkeley: Westward the course of empire takes its way.” ”
    I pray for UC Berkeley, restoration of it’s original intent. God is moving.

    I stand with Ms. Chow and echo her beliefs, stated succinctly and clear. God made 2 genders and man is trying to establish others. We can love that you are created by God and still disagree on your appendices. She truly is a light in a dark place and I pray for her. God is proud of her and He will have His Will done.
