no Bible censor BibleIt appears legislation to crack down on Christian universities and colleges in California will pass, putting their very existence at risk.

If enacted into law, Senate Bill 1146 would prevent Christian schools and universities from exercising their religious beliefs regarding biblical sexuality. Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute says he stands ready to defend those schools if the bill goes into law.

"[Under this legislation] we're talking about the government using taxpayer resources to, in essence, [overtly] strangle and persecute ... universities because of their religious beliefs, because of their religious convictions – something that on a federal basis has been protected in the past," explains the attorney.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)Dacus talks about the implications of Democratic State Senator Ricardo Lara, who authored the legislation, of being openly homosexual.

"This kind of a personal zeal and discriminatory animosity ... toward Christians and Christian institutions should be a red blinking light, a warning sign to other Christian institutions as to what they can expect," he warns.

The vote on the bill is expected on Thursday.
