Protecting religious expression is vital, not just for Christians, but for everyone. Conscience rights are pre-political rights and provide the foundation on which every other liberty is built. Protecting that foundation on college campuses requires, at minimum, allowing religious student groups to meet on campus, to use allocated student funding like every other group, to choose leaders who adhere to the stated beliefs and values that define the group, and to think and speak as freely as other students.
Please, take a minute to show support for these groups and these courageous students.
The New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) has agreed to pay $250,000 in legal fees after spending years attempting to shut down New Hope Family Services, a faith-based adoption agency, because of its policy about placing children with a "married mother and father" and not same-sex couples and unmarried heterosexual couples.
