UC Ends Policy Calling Christians "Oppressors;" Says It Erred Defining Religious Discrimination

A school-wide policy at the University of California-Davis that accused Christians of discriminating against other faiths has been changed, according to the Christian Broadcast Network website.

University officials agreed on February 16, 2011 to revise its "Principles of Community" document, following complaints from Christian students who felt they were unfairly targeted.

The school had defined religious discrimination as, "The loss of power and privilege to those who do not practice the dominant culture's religion. In the United States, this is institutionalized oppression toward those who are not Christians."

The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) -- a Christian legal group -- wrote a letter of objection to the school on behalf of more than two dozen students. The university apologized, saying Christian students should not have been singled out.
