A proposal from the Biden administration would have an adverse impact on religious freedom and treatment of religious student organizations at public universities if it goes into effect, a top U.S. State Department official during the Trump administration warns.
Sam Brownback, who served as the ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom under former President Donald Trump, is decrying the U.S. Department of Education’s plans to rescind a rule making it easier for faith-based student organizations at public colleges to raise claims of discrimination based on their religious beliefs.
Brownback, a Republican who also served as a U.S. senator and former governor of Kansas, warned that the Biden administration’s proposal ignores the First Amendment rights of religious clubs, although many have faced opposition from campus administrations to receive official recognition in recent years.
The proposal in question was published in the Federal Register on Feb. 22. The public comment period ends on Friday.
