Christian colleges were recently given the label of "absolute worst" for LGBT students due to, among other things, requesting a religious exemption to the Obama administration's current interpretation of Title IX regulations.
Campus Pride's "shame list" has 102 Christian colleges and universities at the time of this publication.

President Barack Obama's administration is facing a federal lawsuit from the American Center for Law and Justice, a conservative law group, over its failure to properly address the ongoing genocide of the Islamic State terror group against Christians and other religious minorities.
The ACLJ pointed out that despite the U.S. Department of State recognizing earlier this year that IS has indeed been committing a genocide in its captured territories in Iraq and Syria, the persecuted minorities are still not receiving the help they need.
Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham says America's enemies today are "godless secularism" and those who "call themselves progressives."
Graham reported on his latest Decision America Tour prayer rally in Boston on Tuesday, which he said on Facebook was attended by over 3,000 people on the Capitol grounds. Graham said that he and the attendees prayed for God's forgiveness and for the healing of America, as he also encouraged Christians to run for office and vote in the coming elections.
Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini, formerly a hostage held in Iran, has condemned the continued mass executions of prisoners in the Islamic Republic, including Christians, and asked why the United States, the European Union and the U.N. are not doing anything to stop Iran.
Abedini posted photos of recently executed prisoners in Iran on Facebook Monday, noting that one of the men put to death was a Christian by the name of Ali Asadi.
"Every Wednesday in Rajaeeshar prison [where] I was for more than two years, [the] Islamic Republic of Iran executes tens of people by hanging them," Abedini wrote. more >>
A Maryland school official who recently stirred controversy for saying that transgender students should be allowed to bunk on school-related trips with the gender group of their choice, told The Christian Post that the students "get it" when it comes to transgender acceptance.
Bob Mosier, chief communications officer for Anne Arundel County Public Schools, told CP on Friday that the district has long respected the rights of students regardless of their race, religion, sex, cultural background, or gender identity, among other labels.
The Family Research Council, a pro-life and pro-traditional marriage conservative group, is speaking out against a North Carolina school district's transgender guidelines, which would bar teachers from calling their students "boys and girls."
"These transgender guidelines, which will go into effect this month, range from absurd to downright outrageous. Not only are teachers not allowed to call their students 'boys and girls,' but boys who identify as girls would be permitted to participate on overnight all-girl field trips," the organization said in a Facebook post on Thursday.
The FRC pointed to a Fox News report which said that teachers in Charlotte, North Carolina have been advised to "stop calling the children 'boys and girls,' according to a training presentation on transgender issues." more >>
