GOP Senators Introduce Bill to Protect Religious Rights of College Students

As Democratic socialists have become bolder over the past few decades, they have been systematically targeting Christians and conservatives in hopes of silencing the truth.

Many of today’s universities and colleges are run by Democratic socialists who have been turning the institutions of higher education into institutions of higher socialist brainwashing.

To accomplish their goals, they have been setting guidelines and rules designed to silence Christian students, by restricting what they can and cannot say on campus or on social media.

In a move to change the socialist trend, three Republican Senators are proposing change the Higher Education Act of 1965 to protect the religious rights of college and university students throughout America.

The College Fix – Republican senators introduce Equal Campus Access Act to protect students’ religious freedom – Three Republican senators have proposed legislation in an effort to protect college students’ freedom of religion on campus.

The Higher Education Act of 1965, which sets many of the federal government’s policies on higher education, is currently up for renewal.

With that, U.S. Senators James Lankford (R-Oklahoma), Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) and Tim Scott (R-South Carolina), introduced in April the Equal Campus Access Act of 2019 as an amendment to the HEA.

The proposed amendment states: “None of the funds made available under this Act may be provided to any public institution of higher education that denies to a religious student organization any right, benefit, or privilege that is otherwise afforded to other student organizations at the institution (including full access to the facilities of the institution and official recognition of the organization by the institution) because of the religious beliefs, practices, speech, leadership standards, or standards of conduct of the religious student organization.” …

I have seen first hand how some institutions of higher education have intentionally violated the religious rights of students.

One such incident was a professor who asked for a show of hands of all Christians in his classes.

When students raised their hands, the professor threatened to kick them out of class and/or fail them if they said anything in class ort challenged his teaching.

One professor called a Christian student an ignorant racist bigot who needed to grow up and become part of the real world.
