University retreats on discrimination against Christians

A state university is backing down on a community service policy that discriminated against Christians.

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire requires students to perform 30 hours of “service-learning” or community service to graduate. But last year, the university told Alexandra Liebl she had not fulfilled her requirement because she chose to volunteer as a religious education teaching assistant at her local Catholic church.

It’s one of a number of cases in which universities have decided to back down on discriminatory policies.

Speaking at Liberty University’s commencement in May, President Trump made it plain his administration plans to set a new tone regarding the government’s view of Christianity.

“America is better when people put their faith into action,” Trump said. “As long as I am your president no one is ever going to stop you from practicing your faith or from preaching what’s in your heart. We will always stand up for the right of all Americans to pray to God and to follow his teachings.”
