A federal judge ruled against a Christian college in Missouri arguing a Biden administration rule requiring schools to open women’s dorms and showers to biological males.
The College of the Ozarks sued the administration in April, arguing that a federal directive “requires private religious colleges to place biological males into female dormitories and to assign them as females’ roommates,” which goes against the school’s rules prohibiting male students from female dorms and vise-versa.
District Judge Roseann Ketchmark on Wednesday denied the college’s motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Fair Housing Act.
The Christian school, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom, argues Biden’s “anti-discrimination order” discriminates against Christian schools for biblical beliefs about gender and sexuality.
ADF plans to challenge the judge’s dismissal, according to Fox News.
Ryan Bangert, ADF senior counsel and the vice president of legal strategy, previously told the Todd Starnes Radio Show the school sued “so they can continue to live out their creed as well as their understanding of how to operate their schools.”
“The school wants to operate as it always has,” Bangert said, “separating men and women into separate dorms. It’s a matter of faith to them. It’s also a matter of safety and common sense.”
The Alliance Defending Freedom case could impact Christian colleges and universities across America. You can help out by visiting adflegal.org/todd.
