Medical center claims ‘religious oppression’ is just a Christian thing

Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) claims that Christianity oppresses minority faiths because it has historically been the dominant religion in the U.S., according to the center’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) toolkit.

The center’s DEI Office says that the toolkit is supposed to give staff and students the resources to “build, dismantle, or fix” issues pertaining to DEI, according to the document. The toolkit also includes several references to different types of discrimination but singles out the Christian faith for the oppression of minority religions.

“Religious Oppression: Refers to the systematic subordination of minority religions by the dominant Christian majority,” the toolkit reads. “This subordination is a product of the historical tradition of Christian hegemony and the unequal power relationships of minority religious groups with the Christian majority.”

Additionally, the toolkit lists a definition of “Whiteness,” which it claims was used as a substitute for the terms “Christian and Englishmen” during the 17th century to “distinguish European colonists from Africans and indigenous peoples.”

“The creation of ‘whiteness’ meant giving privileges to some, while denying them to others with the justification of biological and social inferiority,” the toolkit reads. “Whiteness itself refers to the specific dimensions of racism that serve to elevate white people over people of color. This definition counters the dominant representation of racism in mainstream education as isolated in discrete behaviors that some individuals may or may not demonstrate, and goes beyond naming specific privileges.”

The center, which is located in Nashville, Tennessee, explains that the toolkit is supposed to “move us from crisis to possibility” by “cultivating inclusive environments,” according to the document. VUMC explains that the hope is this information will help “navigate the journey towards embodying DEI and anti-racist practices within the Vanderbilt Health community.”

VUMC came under heavy scrutiny in September 2022 after it was discovered that the hospital was using “trans buddies” to enforce a child’s gender identity. The hospital was also offering cross sex hormones and sex-change surgeries to minors but later paused the procedures after backlash from legislators.

VUMC did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Today’s ruling elites champion policies every previous generation of Americans would have regarded as outright evil. At the top of that list would be the supremely radioactive issue – illuminated by the hit summer film “Sound of Freedom” – of the widespread trafficking and sexual slavery of children, as well as the shocking prevalence of pedophiles in the United States of America. Indeed, the U.S. is the largest market for child sexual abuse in the world.

According to Tim Ballard, who has led many missions rescuing sex-trafficked children around the world, the Biden administration actually ENABLES AND PROMOTES the trafficking and sexual slavery of children with its horrendous border policies, its push for early sexualization of children, championing children’s “right to consent” on everything including mutilating transgender surgeries, and so on.

“Pedophiles are sitting back right now,” says Ballard, “and going, ‘We’ve been pushing this agenda for decades, and now we don’t have to push any more, because the left is taking care of it for us’ – IN AMERICA!”

Ballard’s concerns are confirmed by Tara Lee Rodas, a Health and Human Services whistleblower who recently testified before Congress that under Joe Biden, “THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME THE MIDDLEMAN IN A LARGE-SCALE, MULTI-BILLION-DOLLAR CHILD TRAFFICKING OPERATION.”

But that’s just the beginning. The whole, secret criminal mega-enterprise of child sex trafficking and the global elites’ affinity for pedophilia is exposed as never before in the August issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, in a groundbreaking issue titled “THE NEW AMERICAN SLAVE TRADE: How the Biden regime enables and promotes child sex trafficking in the U.S.A.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
