Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, and Religious Liberty

The latest in the current case of denying religious liberty in the US.

As you may recall, Vanderbilt University leaders made a move restricting the leadership rules for religious student groups, a move which showed they had put political correctness above religious liberty. The move is a de facto restriction only designed at religious students. You can read about it here. This was a move that was made quietly and without fanfare at Texas A&M University a year ago. Keep in mind that these schools are in parts of the country that are traditionally conservative, yet the moves are radically neo-liberal.

Next, the Tennessee legislature came to the rescue, passing a law trying to require fairness. More info here.

Then the governor of Tennessee seems satisfied to allow religious discriminination, which you can read here.

 Meanwhile, the Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian legal group, has been attempting to ensure legal protection for religious student organizations, which you can read about here.

Yesterday they told us where we can pray and what we can display in public; today they tell us who we can elect in our private student organizations. What will they take away tomorrow, while we sleep?
