Brigham Young University could reportedly lose its accreditation over the transgender issue.
As The Daily Caller reports:
Brigham Young University (BYU) may lose its accreditation after discontinuing speech adaptation services for transgender clients.
Utah’s BYU stopped offering gender-affirming speech therapy classes for young transgender people earlier in the year, according to UPI. Following the decision, the Council of Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, part of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), started a probe into whether the Provo-based institution will still be accredited, The College Fix reported.
BYU is run by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who openly oppose transgenderism, according to the outlet.
The religious group believes that “members and nonmembers who identify as transgender—and their family and friends—should be treated with sensitivity, kindness, compassion, and an abundance of Christlike love,” but the “intended meaning of gender in the family proclamation is biological sex at birth.”
The Mormon church officially bans its members from engaging in Ttransgenderism
