College of the Ozarks files suit against Biden Administration

By: | April 16, 2021

College of the Ozarks has filed suit in federal court against the Biden Administration’s order that people be allowed to use facilities of a “declared gender rather than biological gender.”

The executive order is being executed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) which says entities covered by the Fair Housing Act cannot “discriminate” based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

“The government cannot and should not force schools to open girls’ dorms to males based on its politically motivated and inappropriate redefinition of ‘sex,’” Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Julie Marie Blake, who will represent the school, said in a statement. “Women shouldn’t be forced to share private spaces—including showers and dorm rooms—with males, and religious schools shouldn’t be punished simply because of their beliefs about marriage and biological sex. Government overreach by the Biden administration continues to victimize women, girls, and people of faith by gutting their legal protections, and it must be stopped.”
