Evangelical College UNDER INVESTIGATION by Leftist
(RepublicanDaily.org) – In the modern day and age, it’s generally no longer considered acceptable to refuse someone employment, housing, or other such things purely on the basis of their gender, race, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation. Now and again, though, a story emerges about an organization trying to do so anyway. Seattle Pacific University is currently at the heart of a nationwide debate over its rule against the hiring of people from the LGBTQ community.
According to reports, the private Christian institution was approached by State Attorney General Bob Ferguson to answer questions regarding its hiring practices and staff rules. The AG did not accuse the school of breaking any laws directly, but referred to information public prosecutors had picked up indicating that staff members were being subjected to discrimination.

The school responded to the AG’s initial communication about this issue by stating its rules related to its religious ethos. It refused to comply with the state government’s demands to produce information about the regulations, invoking legal protections over freedom of speech and religion. The university’s attorneys filed a lawsuit in federal court so it would not have to adhere to the demands.
Ferguson has now officially announced his office is investigating the school.
What do you think? Should the school be allowed to keep the policy?
