(FREE BEACON) – A Christian college is taking the Biden administration to court over a directive mandating the college to end its single-sex dorms and bathrooms.
A Biden executive order signed in January requires colleges to open up single-sex facilities to members of the opposite sex depending on the person's gender identity. The College of the Ozarks—a Missouri Christian college with an enrollment just over 1,400—alleges that this requirement violates its religious right to practice and enforce its beliefs about sexuality.
"By promulgating a Directive imposing liability on colleges with religious objections to sex before marriage or to transgender theory, Defendants have targeted the College’s religious beliefs and practices and shown hostility toward them," the lawsuit, filed Thursday, states. "The Directive, and Defendants’ enforcement of it, imposes impermissible burdens on the exercise of religion in violation of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution."
