For legal protections to be effective, they will likely have to be precise — targeting known threats while providing the legal tools to deter abuse. Specifically, state legislatures should consider three pieces of legislation: A First Amendment defense act, a campus freedom of association act, and an act protecting the accreditation of Christian schools and colleges.A First Amendment defense act would "prohibit denials of tax exemptions, grants, loans, accreditation, licenses, and a host of other state benefits merely because a person holds orthodox Christian views on sexual morality."
It's a shame that campus freedom of association acts are necessary, but at a time when schools are making Christian clubs take in agnostics and atheists, it's where we are.
Protecting the accreditation of Christian educational institutions is a fairly urgent bit of business given that their only current "protection" comes from one of the post-American regime's most sinister tools for imposing tyranny:
Losing accreditation would effectively destroy most schools, yet recognized accreditors — at least in theory — are required to respect the “stated mission” of a school or university, including its “religious mission.” Unfortunately, however, the agency charged with enforcing that requirement is the Obama administration’s Department of Education. The DOE — one of the federal government’s most leftist bureaucracies — will likely do nothing to enforce the law and protect religious schools. As a consequence, states should create a private right of action to permit schools in their jurisdiction to sue for injunctive relief and damages in the event that an accreditor violates the law and demands that a school take any action inconsistent with its religious mission.French acknowledges that the backlash from left-leaning corporations and activist groups will make this spring's Indiana firestorm look like a Sunday brunch, but that's what God gave us spines for.
