Christian universities are being attacked in America. In California, major private Christian universities were recently told they couldn't hold any Biblical standards for their students or faculty (like not sleeping around or teaching against homosexuality) or else they would lose government scholarships to their students. But what Texas Christian University is doing is far worse: they are denying the faith from within their institution instead of being pressured from without.
As the Christian Post reports, it has recently been discovered that TCU is offering students academic credit for interning with Planned Parenthood. The history department is asking students to "develop a project highlighting [Planned Parenthood's] history in Fort Worth since it was established here in 1935." This would help PP because they have a public, negative history with many Americans, being known for select intended genocide, like with the African American community.
A pro-life group on campus, Students For Life Of America, has discovered the partnership and called out TCU. "It is a disgrace for a large Christian university to offer credit for an internship at the largest abortion provider in the nation. Instead of educating and equipping students on how to persuasively discuss the pro-life viewpoint and help women in crisis, they instead reward students for spending valuable time volunteering for an organization that ends the lives of over 325,000 innocent human beings a year," the group said. "And just think of the parents who thought their child would be receiving a valuable Christian-focused education at a private school. They are paying over $53,500 a year to be swindled."
The university gave a bland response to the scandal, saying that TCU "strives to provide diverse learning opportunities for students to effectively prepare them for the global community. The university offers many internships in any given semester, and does not support political or personal statements associated with any of them. Students are encouraged to seek those that match their interests."
