Faith Based Universities See Trump’s Win as a Reprieve
“when it came to faith-based convictions he [Obama] didn’t share, he showed no mercy.”
The last eight years have been an assault on faith based institutions in many ways so it’s no wonder the folks at these schools are breathing a sigh of relief.
National Review has the story:
For Some Faith-Based Institutions, Trump Represents a Reprieve
Perhaps more than any other sector in America, the ivory towers of academia are mourning the defeat of Hillary Clinton, the departure of President Barack Obama, and the election of Donald Trump.
For our faith-based university, however, the changing of the guard cannot come soon enough. The Obama administration’s sustained assault on religious liberty and the right of conscience, and the ineptitude of his White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, had campuses and religious charities of conservative, religious orientation struggling to survive.
Some American colleges may be preoccupied with concerns over “micro-aggressions,” but what about the macro-aggressions of the Obama administration toward campuses or organizations like Ave Maria University? The president may have had sympathy for the “safe space” pampering of college students, but when it came to faith-based convictions he didn’t share, he showed no mercy.
President Obama threatened crippling fines if a college refused as a matter of conscience to make contraceptive services, including sterilization and abortifacient drugs, available in the health plans offered to its employees and students. The government’s foreign-assistance apparatus required a pledge of allegiance to the LGBT and “reproduction freedom” agendas as a condition for grants. Indeed, early on the administration sent a message to faith-based groups by yanking a grant to the U.S. Catholic bishops, a proven provider of quality refugee services, because they would not forsake their views on abortion and contraception.
