"The California legislature is waging a progressive, liberal assault on Christian colleges in an attempt to use the law to manipulate them and force them to abandon their faith-based convictions.
The California Senate passed SB1146, a bill containing a provision that removes Title IX exemptions designed to protect a religious school's freedom to exercise their religion. The bill is set to be considered before the California State Assembly.
Recent news reports indicate the author of the unconstitutional provision, Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), has made the bill less anti-Christian, but a less evil bill is still an evil bill.
Although the bill has passed the California senate and is in the California Assembly, Sen. Lara's amended (less evil) version, as reported, will:
- Force and regulate new public disclosures for religious-based colleges
- Mandate religious colleges to disclose, post and distribute biblical policies the state views as "discriminatory"
- Require religious colleges to submit to the inspection of their campus by state regulators
- Require mandatory, self-reporting by religious institutions when a student is expelled for violating biblical standards for conduct as set forth in the school's policy.
