Erin Elmore, Turning Point USA, March 29, 2023

An exclusive, private research institution located in the extremely affluent suburbs of Philadelphia recently promoted a seminar taking place at the school titled “A Womanist Path to Ending White Christian America.”

Villanova University claims to be a Roman Catholic institution founded in 1842 {snip}


This “Catholic” University is now hosting a Library’s Speakers’ Corner for a workshop surrounding “Ending White Christian America.”

“A troubling part of that reality is that white supremacy is grounded in Christian history, texts, ideas, and institutions. Is Christian faith possible apart from anti-Blackness? In this session, we will explore this question as we contemplate the meaning of the end of “White Christian America” We will study the liberative [sic] possibilities found in womanist theology, a discourse developed by Black women.”

“A Womanist Path to Ending White Christian America.”

It is worth mentioning that this event is not being coordinated by a fringe group on campus. According to the official announcement from the school, “This session will be facilitated by Rev. Naomi Washington-Leapheart. Reverend Naomi is an ordained minister, justice advocate, public administrator, and adjunct professor of Theology and Religious Studies at Villanova University.”

Not surprisingly, the event flyer includes liberal trigger words such as “racial violence” and “anti-blackness.” It also mentions the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd as a consequence of the American “white supremacist system.”
