    The LGBT movement has begun an aggressive national effort to force religious colleges to give up their moral opposition to homosexual and transgender behavior -- under threats of harassment, lawsuits, loss of funding. The latest national LGBT assault is to pass laws around the country to force conservative Christian colleges to surrender their opposition to homosexual and transgender behavior. The first such bill, S1146, was recently introduced in the California Legislature. On June 26, it passed the California State Senate. It is now in the Assembly and is having a public hearing this Tuesday before the Judiciary Committee. MassResistance is...

    'Could open Christian and other religious schools to a blizzard of lawsuits' California state lawmakers are poised to advance legislation they say will promote greater equity at the state’s colleges and universities, but religious freedom advocates say it’s just another attempt to advance the LGBT agenda by removing the ability of schools to determine their own criteria for selecting students and personnel and establishing codes of conduct. The legislation is known as SB 1146, which amends the California Equity in Higher Education Act, or EHEA. As it currently stands, the statute forbids discrimination based on religion, sexual orientation, gender identity...

    Nick Palacios struggled to get his conservative Pentecostal parents to accept him as a gay evangelical Christian for nearly a decade before his family found a common ground through faith. Now, as an openly gay seminarian, the 29-year-old hopes to carve out a similar acceptance for other gays in the broader evangelical community through his role as president of the nation's first LGBT student club sanctioned by a major evangelical seminary. The group, called OneTable, formed last fall at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, one of the world's largest multi-denominational seminaries, and has attracted about three dozen students. "It quickly...

    Four months ago Diana Jimenez had an epiphany. “I was pro-life but had no idea what an abortion looked like,” Diana told me today by phone. “Then I actually saw a video of an abortion, and my heart broke in pieces.” A senior nursing student at Biola, a Christian university in La Mirada, California, Diana (pictured right) promptly launched a pro-life group and invited Gregg Cunningham, executive director of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, to speak. After a great deal of energy was expended to publicize, only four students showed up. Diana was compelled to attempt greater outreach, and the...

    Eighteen Bible students from the evangelical Bible Institute of Los Angeles, Biola, visited BYU campus Tuesday to build friendships, develop relationships and clarify doctrine. “It’s important that other organizations understand each other, get a basic understanding and be willing to listen to each other,” said Julie Ann Johnson, 23, a BYU linguistics major, from Denver, Colo. Evangelists broadly define themselves as those in the Christian religion who strongly believe in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Bible. “This trip is based on talking about differences and more importantly getting to know what you believe,” said...
