Christian colleges could lose federal funding unless they ignore scripture

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) is fighting a lawsuit to make sure Christian college students across the nation don’t lose their federal funding for following biblical views on sexuality.

Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes called Hunter v. U.S. Department of Education a “very dangerous” legal case, which asks Oregon’s district court to dismantle Title IX protections preventing discrimination against religious schools.

ADF, representing three schools–Corban University, William Jessup University, and Phoenix Seminary, asked a federal district court Friday to allow them to intervene against a lawsuit filed by a recently formed LGBT activist group on behalf of some current and former students.

Thirty-or-so former and current students are suing the Department of Education, asking the government, to strip all federal financial aid from Christian universities and colleges unless those schools renounce their core religious beliefs on LGBT issues.

“It’s really just asinine,” Ryan Tucker, a lawyer for ADF, told the Todd Starnes Radio Show Tuesday.

ADF is asking to intervene because none of these schools are party to the lawsuit but could be impacted by it.
