- Texas students see religious bias with 'year of Our Lord'
By Casey Curlin
Students at a Texas college are demanding that their diplomas not be dated "in the year of Our Lord," prompting school officials to consider removing that phrase while leaving what others consider another obvious reference to Christendom — the school's name, Trinity University....
The debate began in the fall when some students noticed the wording and said it was intolerant of students with non-Christian religious beliefs.
Senior Sidra Qureshi, a Muslim student and president of Trinity Diversity Connection, started a petition that requested that students have the option of having the words removed from their diplomas.
Isaac Medina, a senior who graduated in December, told the San Antonio Express-News in March that he felt like "a victim of bait and switch" because he had applied to the university under the impression that it maintained only a historical bond to the Presbyterian Church.
"A diploma is a very personal item, and people want to proudly display it in their offices and homes," Miss Qureshi told the Express-News. "By having the phrase 'In the year of Our Lord,' it is directly referencing Jesus Christ, and not everyone believes in Jesus Christ."
oday a school's diplomas, tomorrow...?
