LTRJ Note: The following is posted for informational and research purposes. This article is an example of how Christian groups (colleges, churches, etc.) that are 501 (c) 3 (non-profits) are going to be facing some very touch decisions ahead. If they don’t go along with the government’s mandates on LGBT (and other issues), they will end up being penalized and eventually losing their non-profit status.

On Wednesday, a federal judge denied a Christian college’s request to block enforcement of a new Biden administration rule that the school says will force it to open dorms and showers to students who identify as the opposite sex.

That includes College of the Ozarks, a Christian school located in Springfield, Mo., which sued the Biden administration in April and sought an injunction blocking the rule. The directive was issued in accordance with an LGBT-themed executive order by President Biden.
But on Wednesday, Judge Roseann Ketchmark denied the request for an injunction after hearing arguments from the college and the administration. She was nominated by President Obama. Click here to continue reading.
