Democrats, LGBT Activists’ Plan to Crack Down on Christian Schools

If California Democrats have their way, Christian colleges and universities will no longer be allowed to require students attend chapel services or require them to profess a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Senate Bill 1146 would close a loophole that lawmakers say allows Christian universities to discriminate against students based on their gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation.

“All students deserve to feel safe in institutions of higher education, regardless of whether they are public or private,” said Senator Ricardo Lara, the author of the legislation. “California has established strong protections for the LGBTQ community and private universities should not be able to use faith as an excuse to discriminate and avoid complying with state laws.”

The legislation has already passed the California Senate and is expected to clear hurdles in the Assembly. Thus far, Lara has refused to compromise with the state’s Christian colleges and universities.

“No university should have a license to discriminate,” he said in a statement.

If the loophole is closed, it would only exempt schools that prepare students for pastoral ministry.

“It discriminates against religious colleges, said John Jackson, the president of William Jessup University. “If we don’t play ball with state — the state will attempt to drive us out of existence.”

This is absurd. These are private religious organizations. Leave them alone. I wonder if one could argue that this would fall under Church State Separation, I don't see why not.

This bathroom thing is absurd, no one cared until someone decided they needed government involvement, which is where things usually get fouled up in the first place.

This agenda is part of the illuminati agenda to destroy our culture and family life.

There is no such thing as a Christian school.

Christian is a person. Not an adjective.

So-called Christians are stupid about the New Testament.
Try reading it for a change.
