State Investigation Clears Christian School, But Feds Refuse To Drop $37 Million Fine

(Republican Insider) – Two federal agencies have decided to move forward with their campaigns against Christian college Grand Canyon University, despite the fact that the state auditor’s office completed a review and found no evidence that they have done anything wrong. This proves once again that federal law enforcement is being weaponized against Christians and those who are in opposition to President Joe Biden’s agenda. The deep state needs to be stopped as soon as possible, and our best means of getting that done is Donald Trump.

According to The Georgia Star News, “The Arizona State Approving Agency, an arm of the state’s Department of Veteran Services, issued a determination Feb. 20 that risks identified by ‘court actions by the government’ could not be substantiated, which means the private nonprofit’s students can still use GI bill funding to pay tuition.”

“They said, ‘Zero findings. Not a single one. Not one,’ University President Brian Mueller remarked to KSTAR on March 12th. “That’s very hard to do if you’ve ever been through those kinds of program reviews.”

Bob Romantic, who serves as a representative of Grand Canyon University, spoke with media publication The College Fix where he revealed the audit addressed “all three of the central complaints of the FTC lawsuit” and found they didn’t show that the school was guilty of wrongdoing. Romantic went on in the interview to claim the university was being targeted by “systemic attacks being made against GCU that we believe are retaliation for filing our lawsuit against the DOE.”

“The findings are the latest development in ongoing legal battles between Grand Canyon University and the U.S. Department of Education and the Federal Trade Commission,” the GSN noted. “The FTC alleges in its Dec. 27 lawsuit that GCU misrepresented the number of continuation courses required to complete a doctoral degree, resulting in a substantially higher price tag for students. They also claim the university engaged in unlawful telemarketing and marketing practices.”

The commission is not dropping the lawsuit it brought against GSU, which lends extensive credibility to the claims made by Romantic that GCU is being hounded on purpose, likely due to their being a Christian institution.

“On Oct. 31, the Department of Education levied a fine of $37.7 million against GCU, accusing the university of ‘substantial misrepresentations’ about the costs to complete its doctoral programs, as The College Fix previously reported,” the article divulged. “GCU appealed the fine in November, calling it ‘unprecedented’ in a news release.”

“We’ve just hired the foremost attorney in the country at trying cases in front of the Supreme Court and it is our hope that this is such an egregious situation that the Supreme Court would hear this,” Mueller declared during a conversation with Fox 10 on March 11th.

Mueller has made many public statements saying the Biden administration is viciously targeting the university, one of the largest Christian schools in the country. When The College Fix sought to get a comment from the Education Department they refused to respond.

“Although the FTC accuses GCU of misrepresenting its degree costs, a degree calculator function on their website currently states the average number of continuation courses required for past students for each doctoral degree program in clear, red font above the program’s price listings,” the article continued.

Romantic also stated that GCU has always been open and honest concerning its costs, adding, “GCU’s disclosures are more transparent than other universities and provide more information than is legally required in an effort to benefit students.”

The persecution against Christians is growing by the day here in the United States, where freedom of religion used to be a foundational principle upon which our society was built. Once upon a time, Christianity and the teachings it contained were the bedrock for our laws. Now, the law is being used as a weapon to try and take these institutions apart.
