Christians are not being thrown to the lions, but orthodox monotheistic faith groups (Christians, Muslims and Jews) have specific views on marriage and gender. To truly accomodate these views, you would need to welcome practising social workers with diverse views on the matter of gender. Obviously, hatred directed at gay clients would not be acceptable under any accomodation agreement, but you could specify the conditions of coexistence. CSWE does not even attempt to do that. Asking faith-based universities to sign statements that are specifically contrary to their religous and philosophical stance amounts to discrimination. You can defend the CSWE stance, but you should understand how the other side views it. Frankly, I don't see how this has anything to do with science.

There are plenty of religious universities that have CSWE accredited Social Work programs.  Yeshiva University and Boston College are two examples.  When CSWE requires schools to agree to certain policies and practices it is no different than some schools (Liberty, e.g.) requiring students to sign belief statements/agreements prior to enrollment.

... and if you read CSWE's take on the situation, they are as baffled as anyone. CSWE has not changed its accreditation requirements in quite a while, but the school had new leadership that apparently was not interested in trying to solve the issue. Apparently absolutely no effort was  made by the school to work with CSWE on whatever the issues were, and they just quite abruptly shut down the program.  Either it wasn't profitable, or the social work students didn't fit the mold of students the school was wanting to attract, or something else.
