Christian Schools Lose Appeal in U. of Colo. Case

Ad Feedback

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from two Colorado Christian high schools that wanted the University of California to grant college-prep credit for religious courses.

The Association of Christian Schools International and co-plaintiff Calvary Chapel Christian School accused the university of violating freedom of speech and religion for refusing to honor the courses when considering admissions eligibility.

The justices, however, denied them a hearing without comment.

Calvary's attorney, Robert H. Tyler of the Murrieta firm Advocates for Faith and Freedom, said Tuesday's ruling was a "green light to discriminate against Christian viewpoints."
     
The court decision affirms a 2008 lower court ruling by U.S. District Judge S. James Ortero who said the schools had failed to prove religious intolerance.
