The U.S. Department of Education is being sued as part of an attack on Christian colleges.
The lawsuit brought by the Religious Exemption Accountability Project claims that exemptions from Title IX rules that are granted to schools operated by religious organizations are a form of discrimination.
The suit, which cites 33 students who claim they were discriminated against at various colleges, comes against the backdrop of an executive order from President Joe Biden that opposed discrimination on the basis of gender identity but did not cite specific actions that would be taken. Further, the House has passed the Equality Act that would codify multiple items on the LGBTQ political agenda, according to The Hill.
The lawsuit states that it was filed to “put an end to the U.S. Department of Education’s complicity in the abuses and unsafe conditions thousands of LGBTQ+ students endure at hundreds of taxpayer-funded, religious colleges and universities.”
