Assumption Student Leaders Against Mandatory Oppression
We student leaders found last night’s mandatory lecture to be deeply unnerving and disrespectful. We are a diverse group of adults with a vast range of religious, personal, and sexual preferences, all of which deserve to be respected.
The beauty of religious life at Assumption College has traditionally been its understanding that student will find their own faith, in their own time, in their own way.
Last night’s lecture did not represent this principal and was not what we as student leaders represent. Tricking us into supporting an event that disrespected and disavowed so many lifestyles and personal choices in entirely unacceptable.
In the future, we hope to never be subjected to similar ‘mandatory’ events and demand to be treated with the respect we deserve.
