Inside Higher Ed recently reported that over 80 lesbian, gay and transgender organizations are petitioning the NCAA to cut ties with any religious college that discriminates against transgender students by requesting a Title IX waiver.
Title IX limits or prevents federal funding to institutions that discriminate on a number of bases including gender. In 2014, the Department of Education expanded this to include transgender students.
Now LGBT organizations are moving to defund and to culturally isolate any institution that stands against the moral revolution. This kind of pressure is not at all subtle. It’s an overt attempt to try to marginalize Christian institutions.
The stage is now set for every meeting of the NCAA’s governing body to be an arena for conflict over this issue. The question is, quite honestly, whether or not they will succumb to the pressure sooner or later.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/255619637″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
