Update on UC Lawsuit

USA Today has an article about the ACSI lawsuit against the University of California system over the lack of accreditation for a few of their courses. Despite rhetoric from the ACSI about the UC discriminating against Christians and trying to keep kids from Christians schools from attending their colleges, the article notes:

UC has certified 43 Calvary Chapel courses and has admitted 24 of the 32 applicants from the high school in the past four years, Patti says.

They have objected to only a few courses that don't fit their criteria, they've certified 43 other courses from the school, and they've admitted 75% of applicants from that school. Such horrible discrimination! The article also notes that a ruling is expected in the next few weeks on the UC's motion to dismiss the case.
