Three law professors considered rebellious by Chancellor Pat Robertson were fired May 23 by Regent University. Five new faculty members were hired as the as-yet unaccredited law school of 350 students continues to pursue certification by the American Bar Assn. Regent officials said the dismissals of Paul Morken, Roger Born and Lionel Postic had nothing to do with their protest of the removal last year of Law School Dean Herbert W. Titus, a professor with controversial conservative views.

Virginia's Supreme Court ruled, 5 to 2, that the state can issue construction bonds for the Christian-based Regent University founded by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson without violating the separation of church and state. The court said the bond issue is legal because no public money would be spent and the state's credit would not be at stake. The court did rule, however, that Regent's School of Divinity may not use buildings financed by the bonds.

Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr on Friday defended as "entirely appropriate" his speech to a law school run by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson, who has been highly critical of President Clinton on Whitewater and other issues. Starr addressed an audience at Robertson's Regents University at a time when he is under fire from the White House and other critics for participating in what they say are partisan activities that compromise his role as an impartial investigator.

After a 10-year wait, Regent University School of Law has received full accreditation from the American Bar Assn. The House of Delegates of the American Bar Assn. voted this month at its annual meeting to give the Virginia Beach, Va., school the new status, which adds considerably to a law school's reputation. "The fact that they acknowledge our overtly evangelical mission statement to me is a major breakthrough," said religious broadcaster Pat Robertson, founder and chancellor of the school.

Kay James, a university dean with a background in conservative social issues, was appointed to lead a national panel that will study the effects of legalized gambling in America--a selection that drew immediate criticism from the gaming industry. James, dean of the school of government at Regent University in Norfolk, Va., was selected by House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) and Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.) to pilot the two-year, $5-million study.

Alan Chambers directs Exodus International, widely described as the nation's largest ex-gay ministry. But when he addresses the group's Freedom Conference at Concordia University in Irvine this month, Chambers won't celebrate successful "ex-gays." Truth is, he's not sure he's ever met one. With years of therapy, Chambers says, he has mostly conquered his own attraction to men; he's a husband and a father, and he identifies as straight.

Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr plans to speak today at an event co-sponsored by Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network and a Virginia law school founded by the conservative religious broadcaster. Mark D. Fabiani, an associate counsel at the White House, said Thursday that Starr's decision to deliver the keynote address at the 10th anniversary of Regent University law school in Virginia Beach shows his ties to President Clinton's political enemies.

As members of the Legislature reconvene following the summer recess, I would like to urge careful examination of a bill that has significant negative implications for tens of thousands of public university employees in California, including many in Orange County. SB 645 would impose an "agency shop" at the University of California and California State University. Under this legislation, employees in a bargaining unit represented by a union would be required to either join the union and pay its dues or have a substantial "fair share" fee deducted from their paychecks.
