Will Wheaton College fire hijab-wearing professor?


In a moment when relations between Christians and Muslims are so strained, claiming that adherents of the two religions worship the same God can be controversial. But when the person making such a claim is employed by an evangelical college, it might mean losing one’s job. That could happen to political science professor Larycia Hawkins, who publicly claimed that Muslims and Christians “worship the same God.”  Hawkins, an Episcopalian, also decided to wear a hijab, a traditional Muslim head-covering, in solidarity with Muslims during the Advent season.
