So, the organization (which I remember from when I was in school) "Campus Crusade for Christ" is dropping "Crusade" from the name ... which I sort of get, but still think it's dumb ...
But it turns out, they are also dropping "Christ" from the name. Sooooooo .....
It's just the .... "Campus"????
Ok, really they are changing the name to "Cru" which apparently doesn't stand for anything, either literally or figuratively.
And it still smacks of the word "Crusade" ... so I'm not REALLY quite sure what they expect to gain from this.
Eh, my impression was that they were always pretty progressive anyway.
Update: Apparently concerned with the effect this would have on fundrasing, they felt compelled to defend the decision on their site. "It is true that we care more about effectively proclaiming the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ than we do about having the word “Christ” in our name". Sounds just like the kind of denialistic rationalization that progressives use in their propaganda.
Yeah, we're all about Jesus. We're just not going to mention him in our name anymore. Yeah. We're that committed.
Just another symptom of cultural rot.
