Christians Who Voted for Schwarzenegger Now Paying the Price, Says Activist
By Allie Martin and Jody BrownAugust 30, 2006

(AgapePress) – The president of a Sacramento-based pro-family group says recent actions of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger prove that Christians must examine candidates and get involved in politics. At the same time, another family advocate in the Golden State is urging Christian families to rethink putting their children back in public school in the coming days.

Earlier this week the Republican governor signed into law SB 1441, a measure which could force Christian colleges to either abandon biblical standards on sexuality or reject students who receive financial aid from the state. The bill adds sexual orientation to already existing provisions in the state’s law that prohibit discrimination on the basis of, among other things, race, national origin, ethnic group identification, religion, age, sex, color, or disability.

As pointed out by one pro-family group in the state, the law could potentially prevent parochial schools such as private, Christian, Catholic, Mormon, or other faith-based educational institutions from receiving student financial assistance if they also maintain a code of conduct that prohibits homosexual behavior as immoral based on their religious beliefs.
