    I will concede that the title of the article is biased. There was not decree. The right wing is just as guilty of twisting facts as the left in many cases.
    I posted the article to bring to light that agencies under Obama, and his Democratic left wing crew (mostly appointed by Obama) are attempting to make a sweeping effort to expand the dictates of government control once more.

    This time by dis-allowing private/church schools the priviledge of operating as private schools. We do not need more government oversite over private affairs. We need less government oversite over private affairs.

    If it is validity of the events taking place you need, Here are other links concerning the issue.

    I think the NLRB is right.

    The role of churches is NOT to become something other than a church.

    A church founded university that is not ENTIRELY focused on matters religious is NOT a church, it is a university of higher education.

    With this premise, a church cannot create a school for its paritioners to attend that teach basic values, principles, including the sciences of math, science and social studies, in a manner that they consider to be important (the same as a private school). A church school should only teach religious doctrine, straight up, and should not have the ability to teach the application of this doctrine as it applies to everyday life?

    A Church in this country has the right to form its own school without gov't. interference. But considering this current admin is socialist, doesn't surprise me about this.

    Yes, it is a government intrusion on the affairs of the church.

    The Washington Examiner piece is an OP-Ed. A GOOGLE search of 'Xavier University, nlrb' in the NEWS tab yields 3 hits... 2 of which are this same piece.

    Further research, however, yields this...
    Peter N. Kirstein » Blog Archive » St Xavier University v NLRB in Adjunct Faculty Efforts to Unionize

    The NLRB pulled the same thing on Manhattan College. Here is their response...
    News Release: Manhattan College Statement on NLRB Decision
    The NLRB is pushing their luck.
