Some Christian colleges and universities have begun to capitulate following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to redefine marriage. 

Hope College, Belmont University, and Baylor University have all changed some policies to accommodate homosexual students and employees.

natural marriageCultural analyst Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute says parents need to do some "serious investigating" before sending their children to what they believe is a conservative college that is theologically orthodox.  

Reporting on Baylor, The Washington Post said its board of regents dropped the words "homosexual acts" and other sexual references from the school's new sexual misconduct policy.

An official with the school told the Post the language was changed to reflect Baylor's "caring community." 

Baylor, located in Waco, Texas, is a private Baptist university.

The same story said Hope College in Michigan and Belmont in Nashville will provide benefits for same-sex couples following the Supreme Court decision.

Belmont, a nondenominational school, will offer benefits to "all legally married couples," a school spokesman told Christianity Today

Higgins predicts this is just the beginning. Other schools will undoubtedly do the same, she predicts.

"Because the homsexual community will not tolerate religious freedom," she tells OneNewsNow.
