Time running out for Christian colleges in CA

U.S. ConstitutionChristian colleges and universities in California are heading toward a legislative showdown against the state's liberal leaders. 

Brad Dacus, an attorney with the Pacific Justice Institute, says a state legislative break has delayed expected passage of SB 1146. The bill demands that religious-based schools drop campus rules that prohibit openly homosexual or transgender students.

OneNewsNow has reported that the bill attempts to close a federal loophole that protects religious-based schools. 

Supporters of the legislation claim approximately 34 colleges and universities "have a license to discriminate" under current state law.

Californians who are concerned about the anti-religious legislation are running out of time to fight it, says the PJI attorney, and they face an uphill battle in the liberal state.

Dacus urges those Californians to sit down face to face with legislators, and calmly and respectively explain their opposition.

He says legislators are out of touch with their constituents.

"They don't understand," he says, "that the average Californian does not believe it's fair to force a Christian university to have to change their faith, compromise their belief in Scripture, in order to be treated fairly and equally under California law."

If the bill passes, Dacus predicts liberal Gov. Jerry Brown will sign the bill if it lands on his desk.
