Obama Shaming institutions for being Christian
The Department of Education, under the leadership of Barack Obama, whose pro-homosexual agenda has been unparalleled, has launched a website critics say is dedicated to the “shaming” of Christian colleges that follow biblical principles rather than a leftist social agenda.
“It looks like the Department of Education got a new boss: the Human Rights Campaign,” wrote Family Research Council President Tony Perkins in a Washington Update commentary this week.
Perkins, referring to the leading “gay”-rights group, was spotlighting what he called a “shame list” posted online by the Department of Education of colleges that have sought exemptions to Title IX requirements that provide special treatment to transgenders.
Perkins points out that Congress approved an exemption to certain requirements for faith-based educational institutions well before Obama “started strong-arming the education system to adopt his radical views of ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity.'”
In short, Obama tried to force schools to embrace “gender-free bathrooms and sports teams,” the commentary explains.
Using Title IX as their premise, DOE officials are insisting that “no person … shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participating in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
