A Tiny Catholic College in the Middle of Nowhere Is Taking a Big Stand Against the Federal Government | TheBlaze.com
It’s a brand-new college with only 120 students — but it’s clear where its priorities lie.
This winter, Wyoming Catholic College’s board voted unanimously to reject government funding in a bid to protect religious freedom, the New York Times reported.
The college opened in Lander, a small town of 7,500, in 2007, and doesn’t even occupy its permanent campus yet, but that didn’t stop it from refusing federal dollars.
“[The refusal] allows us to practice our Catholic faith without qualifying it,” Kevin Roberts, the college’s president, told the Times. “It’s clear that this administration does not care about Catholic teaching.”
