Thinker statueStudents turned the tables on a left-wing speaker at a controversial "Christian Privilege" workshop, says a student who attended.

George Washington University made headlines in recent weeks when it was announced the historic campus would allow the workshop, which intended to claim that Christians enjoy "unjust advantages" in society.

GWU student Abigail Marone tells OneNewsNow that she was among approximately a dozen students who challenged speaker Timothy Kane, a homosexual activist, over his left-wing views. The workshop was held April 5.

In a crowd of approximately 30 attendees, Marone reported to Campus Reform that roughly one-third vocally challenged Kane. She said he appeared to be caught off guard by their numbers and - as the pointed questions flew - by their pushback.

Marone tells OneNewsNow Kane was very evasive and failed to respond directly to challenging questions. 

"Every time someone brought something up and specifically a question, myself included," says Marone, "he would either say something like, Well, how does everyone feel about that? Even though he was supposed to be the one leading the seminar."

Marone says she was "pleasantly surprised" by the environment in the room that made her feel comfortable expressing her opposition to Kane's contentions. That was due, she says, to the number of other students there with views opposing Kane.
