Christian College Kicks Student Out Over Confederate Display

Pennsacola Christian College

Pensacola Christian College will not allow a student who went to Charlottesville, Virginia carrying a Confederate Flag to complete his Senior year.

Allen Armentrout, a native of North Carolina, drove to Charlottesville the week after the “Unite the Right” and related counter-protests turned violent. Counter-protester Heather Heyer died from her injuries after a car plowed into a crowd of pedestrians on a Charlottesville street.

Armentrout donned a replica 19th-century uniform, strapped a rifle over his shoulder, and held a Confederate flag while he saluted the statue of Robert E Lee that stands at the center of the controversy in the college town. His actions quickly drew a crowd who protested his actions. The crowd can be heard chanting “Terrorist go home” and “Racist go home” while he stands at attention while saluting the statue. One angry Charlottesville resident stood in front of him with both middle fingers raised for half an hour.

Armentrout says that he is not a racist and made the trip because he wanted people to know the “true history” of the Civil War. He said that the men who fought for the confederacy were not racists and were not fighting to preserve slavery.

He told a local news station of his removal from Pensacola Christian. “I have been released from my school and will be unable to return to college to finish my senior year. I’m processing this and making adjustments to my life to compensate for this scrutiny.”

Pensacola Christian said they do not comment on cases involving individual students, but did release a general statement. “Pensacola Christian College recognizes the dignity and value of all people, and we respect the history of America. We encourage individuals to exercise discernment and seek to build reconciliation, especially during a time of mourning like Charlottesville is experiencing.”

Armentrout disagrees with the school’s decision and believes they should have stood up for him instead. “I believe a Christian institution should support patriotic individuals who want to stand for American tradition and beliefs. It really hurts me a lot when you try to do what’s right and you get attacked.”

Publisher’s note: We should not be surprised as to what we see coming out of this, so called, “Christian College”, that is more of the “Puritanical” brand of Christianity, than the Fundamentalist brand that they purport to be. How tragic that some of the finest of our Baptist families, even Baptist pastors send their children there, thinking that they are keeping them separate from the world, when in reality they are making them, as Jesus said of the Pharisees, Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

 

We got a glimpse of this pharisaical spirit when the University turned Kent Hovind and his wife in for tax evasion when they hadn’t even been charged with tax evasion.  Then Margaret Horton went in and testified against him on the basis that she was being true to her religion.  As the Pensacola News of Oct. 20, 2006 reported, “But Horton said whether Hovind works for God is irrelevant and the Bible does not exempt anyone from paying taxes.

“We know the Scriptures do not promote (tax evasion),” she said. “It’s against Scripture teaching.”


Horton believed it was the college’s duty to report the misleading doctrine. Administration called the Internal Revenue Service and gave the tape to officials, she said.”

This is exactly the same spirit that the Puritan Elders of Salem exhibited when they banished Roger Williams to the wilderness.  Except they banished Allen Armentrout from his senior year.  By the way this isn’t the first time they have

done this.  Now in our opinion, if the College had given a directive that no students were to have gone to Charlottesville, then they would have been justified, but to arbitrarily dismiss Allen afterwards when he had no knowledge of what was going to happen there is criminal.  But listen to what the Lord Jesus said at Mat 10:36  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

Should not Allen expect better of this from the “household of faith?”  Especially those that he has spent multiplied thousands of dollars with.”

But it seems that history has repeated itself.  One victim of the Star Chamber in England in the 17th Century was a man named William Prynne.  He had written on the morality of stage plays, calling female actors “notorious whores.”  He could not have known that the Queen would play in one herself.  Feb. 1634 he was arrested brought before the Star Chamber and sentenced to a 5,000 pound fine, expulsion, deprivation of his Oxford Degree, loss of part of his ears and time in the pillory, and life imprisonment.  This is exactly where America is heading if we don’t get this silliness stopped now and quick.
