US Court: ‘Universities must be free to act according to their religious beliefs’

 Posted at The Christian Institute:

Universities with a religious ethos cannot be forced to act against their beliefs by affirming LGBT ideology, a US district court has ruled.

In 2021, 40 LGBT activist students sued the United States Department of Education for allowing universities to be exempt from anti-discrimination law on “sexual orientation or gender identity” where it would force them to act against their religious beliefs.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon has now dismissed the case, highlighting a previous Supreme Court ruling upholding the right of institutions to only employ staff who adhere to their religious beliefs.
