November 2019Shenandoah University announced in an August 8 press release that the Winchester, Virginia, school has hired Hanaa Unus, a Muslim, as chaplain. Shenandoah is affiliated with the United Methodist Church. The press release boasted, “She is the first clergy person in the school’s nearly 150-year history who does not identify as Christian.”

Shenandoah spokesman Justin Allen, dean of spiritual life, explained: “We’ve always wanted to be more inclusive and more diverse. It was about finding the right person.”

PJ Media blogger John Ellis observed, “The spiritual guidance that students at a Christian university should be receiving is the gospel of Jesus Christ. … Spiritual relativism masked by the desire for ‘diversity’ is leading people to hell.”, 8/16/19;, 8/8/19
