Christian colleges oppose Title IX due process reforms as ‘barrier’ to the truth

Article here. Excerpt:

'The Department of Education’s proposed Title IX regulations, which aim to improve due process for accused students, could present a “barrier” to the truth in sexual assault investigations, the president of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities said Friday.

With her comments, Shirley Hoogstra may have upstaged the highest profile speaker at the group’s Presidents Conference: Rachael Denhollander, the first woman to publicly accuse USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar of sexual assault.

The CCCU president apparently confirmed that Christian institutions see sexual misconduct much like their secular counterparts: as a disciplinary process that should favor accusers over accused students.

Moderating a panel discussion on how Christian colleges should handle Title IX cases, Hoogstra claimed that cross-examination and “in-person” hearings would discourage victims from coming forward.'

"Christian colleges". Xianity is as we know, like most other religions, uncomfortable with the idea of young unmarried adults hanging out together and shagging. They had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the era of coeducation. A few still to this day remain single-sex.

Anything that discourages young adults from shagging will appeal to them. This includes things like presumed guilt, esp. if he who is presumed guilty is male.
