The approval of San Diego State University's new Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender major in October set in motion a wave of similar decisions at other universities and raised economic and religious liberty concerns, WORLD News Service reports. A few weeks after SDSU became the second university in the U.S. to offer an LGBT studies major, which will begin in the spring semester 2012, the City College of San Francisco and Napa Valley Community College also announced they had their own LGBT programs in the works. "I question the decisions to expand programs and departments at a time when our education system is dealing with cutbacks," said assemblyman Martin Garrick, R-Carlsbad. "Our focus should be on retaining programs and classes that prepare students for the workplace." Christian students also expressed concern about violations of religious freedom; many are facing growing discrimination at public universities, especially in classes about sexuality where Christian views are the minority.
