  1. Bible colleges in Illinois say they should be allowed to grant religious degrees without government interfering in the content of their religious teaching or religious faculty members. ABSOLUTELY they should, the religious freedom crushing, totalitarian state of Illinois needs to butt out!
    Any state that dictates religious doctrine is unlawfully establishing a state religion.
    SECTION 3. RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
    The FREE exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship, without discrimination, shall forever be guaranteed, and no person shall be denied any civil or political right, privilege or capacity, on account of his religious opinions; but the liberty of conscience hereby secured shall not be construed to dispense with oaths or affirmations, excuse acts of licentiousness, or justify practices inconsistent with the peace or safety of the State. No person shall be required to attend or support any ministry or place of worship against his consent, nor shall any preference be given by law to any religious denomination or mode of worship.

  2. The people TOLD the state government in 1818 when the first state constitution was ratified that WE DECLARE WE HAVE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM TO EXIST AS CHRISTIANS 24/7 ACCORDING TO OUR RELIGIOUS CONSCIENCE. AND STATE GOVERNMENT CANNOT CHANGE THAT. The people’s first state constitution created state government and set the rules for state government to follow! Our constitutionally protected rights are not state government granted, never have been; they are God granted by natural law!
    The left’s unlawful oppressive war against Christianity continues…

  3. Religious colleges are private schools.
    The state can only have a hold on them IF they are foolish enough to accept government funds for anything. This is the problem we see with interference by Federal government in public schools.
    If these colleges are accepting said funds, they had better cease doing so.
