I think that you are right about the “political conservative” aspect of Evangelical Christianity is the primary focus of intolerance at the university. It is not even safe to express conservative ideas among Christians at my university. I basically don’t say anything political.
But worse than that IMHO is the engagement of Christians in what I call “Christian-shaming” of their brothers and sisters. I have been very disturbed by the self-righteous among us who engage in finger-wagging condescension towards “those other Christians” who are clearly “ignorant, bigoted, fundamentalists.” And then they go on to judge their fellow believers and distance themselves from them. The “Accuser of the Brethren” could not do a better job of creating straw men to knock over with rhetorical flourish. I see this every day.
The political left has been very successful in their effort to portray every policy position that does not fit the neo-Marxist narrative as, “hate” or “bigotry.” Nobody wants to be a hater. And it is easier to point your finger at someone else than it is to think about the truth of the matter or to attempt rational discourse. Especially in this lynch-mob, microaggression triggered milieu of the university.
I came from deep poverty in the midwest. I identify as a fundamentalist and a conservative. I am personally related to many fundamentalist conservatives, none of whom are filled with hatred, bigotry, or ignorance. In fact, they would give you the shirt off their back if you needed it, no matter who you are. But they are still going to vote for fewer social programs and they are going to vote for traditional marriage and pro-life. I was taught, “It is better to die than to take government assistance,” and my parents actually meant that quite literally, as we did not have things like refrigerators or indoor plumbing or food at many times of our lives. These are the people who are being demonized for their beliefs. There are actually philosophical and practical reasons for these “political” beliefs that have nothing to do with drooling hatred.
Don’t sneer at people for being suspicious of UNESCO. My NGO has had to refuse all USAID and sever any UN ties because the UN really does promote cultural imperialism on African people. Even our State Department withdrew USAID from certain African nations because they did not endorse gay marriage for their constitution. This was somewhat hypocritical, because the aid was not withdrawn from any predominantly Muslim country. The UN stance on reproduction, the family, and religious freedoms are firmly at odds with the NGO that I work with. It isn’t just paranoia. Anyway, I mentioned that because you seemed to ridicule people who did not like UNESCO, without considering that there might be valid reasons for that dislike other than being a conspiracy theorist. And globalism versus nationalism is a very real debate, even if you do not believe (as I do) Biblical eschatology.
