Christianity Today finally got around to covering a story that caught my attention back in August (I wrote, “Separation of God and science?”). If you’re interested, read it here: “Admissions: Rejected: Christian school sues University of California over requirements.”
Here’s an excerpt:
“The question the university must confront in reviewing these texts is not whether they have religious content,” the university said, “but whether they provide a comprehensive view of the relevant subject matter, reflecting knowledge generally accepted in the scientific and educational communities and with which a student at the university level should be conversant.”
For example, the university said it rejected the literature course for using an anthology as the only required text.
“It’s not that we’re not allowing a particular viewpoint,” UC spokeswoman Ravi Poorsina said. “We’re saying that we require certain disciplines that in these cases are not there.”
Doesn’t seem to be much new added there.
