The Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBTQ organization in the United States, is calling for religious schools to lose accreditation if the schools won’t “adopt non-discrimination policies” and “meet scientific curriculum requirements.”
These two requirements may sound great on paper, but anyone who is familiar with the LGBTQ lobby will understand that the Human Right Campaign is essentially calling for every single Christian school in the nation to either renounce its core values or lose accreditation.
“Non-discrimination policies” is a politically correct term calling for religious organizations to renounce their belief that God created marriage as a union between a biological man and a biological woman. The doctrine also includes embracing the transgender agenda, and allowing biological men to have unfettered access to women’s bathrooms, shower stalls, and sporting events.
Let’s be clear about this — we’re not talking about some far-off fringe group with limited influence. The Human Rights Campaign has had the ear of the Biden-Harris coalition. Despite not being the most “woke” Democrat in the world, Joe Biden has frequently demonstrated that he is perfectly willing to kowtow to left-wing ideologues. Following his contentious primary, Biden retrofitted his entire platform to make Bernie Sanders supporters happy. This is a serious threat.
For her part, Kamala Harris has a track record as former Attorney General of California of abusing power to harass those she disapproved of for political or personal reasons. All of Biden’s top pics to head the Department of Education were public school union bosses, including former NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia, who in the past dumped on former President Barack Obama for failing to check the growth of charter schools, and Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers.
Weingarten, a vocal supporter of Sen. Warren’s presidential campaign, blasted the Supreme Court earlier this year for its ruling that the state of Montana could not block religious schools from its scholarship program simply because the schools were religious. Given this fact, it would not be inconceivable for a Biden presidency to accede to the Human Rights Campaign blueprint. In fact, some of his cabinet members may be more than happy to push him into doing so.
The First Amendment makes it clear that discrimination against individuals or organizations on religious grounds is against the law. The move to strip accreditation from Christian schools that don’t operate like far-left indoctrination centers is not only immoral — but also legally untenable. But as we’ve learned over the years — this won’t stop them from trying.
