Unfortunately, their curriculum isn’™t up to the higher education standards of the University of California system. No, creationism isn’™t sicience, according to the University of California, so they’™re being sued.

From LeanLeft:

Under a policy implemented with little fanfare a year ago, UC admissions authorities have refused to certify high school science courses that use textbooks challenging Darwinï–¿–½s theory of evolution, the suit says.


Other courses rejected by UC officials include ï–¿–½Christianityï–¿–½s Influence in American History,ï–¿–½ ï–¿–½Christianity and Morality in American Literatureï–¿–½ and ï–¿–½Special Providence: American Government.ï–¿–½

The 10-campus UC system requires applicants to complete a variety of courses, including science, mathematics, history, literature and the arts. But in letters to Calvary Chapel, university officials said some of the schoolï–¿–½s Christian-oriented courses were too narrow to be acceptable.

According to the lawsuit, UCï–¿–½s board of admissions also advised the school that it would not approve biology and science courses that relied primarily on textbooks published by Bob Jones University Press and A Beka Books, two Christian publishers.

Instead, the board instructed the schools to ï–¿–½submit for UC approval a secular science curriculum with a text and course outline that addresses course content/knowledge generally accepted in the scientific community.ï–¿–½

ï–¿–½It appears that the UC system is attempting to secularize Christian schools and prevent them from teaching from a world Christian view,ï–¿–½ said Patrick H. Tyler, a lawyer with Advocates for Faith and Freedom, which is assisting the plaintiffs.

Of course, the first reaction from these anti-science Christian folks is that they are being descriminated against. These are the same folks who whine when political correctness is in employed in the workplace or in academia. Now when they don’™t get their way and get included with their pet ‘œtheories’ they whine the other way.

Jesus didn’™t whine.
