California Raids Christian School, Seeks to Change Its Beliefs or Shut ...
On January 18, 2019 California armed posse raided Christian boarding school - River View Christian Academy (RVCA), located in rural Northern California. The raid, which terrified students and staff, consisted of 16 armed law enforcement from the California Highway Patrol (CHP), 2 canine units and 17 social workers.
The State later admitted the raid was prompted by an internet rumor put forward by an online left-wing tabloid. The State was duped into thinking the school housed illegal drugs, stockpiled weapons and was preparing for an end-times apocalypse.
Yet the Waco-style raid turned up no such evidence.
Instead of apologizing for its dangerous blunder, the State doubled down and began imposing daily fines against the school for allegedly operating as an "unlicensed community care facility." RVCA has actually operated as a private school for the past 25 years, filing an annual affidavit with the California Dept of Education as do other private schools and homeschools in the State.
Attorney for RVCA, Kevin Snider said, "In 25 years of practice, I have never seen this level of aggressive, militant and ideologically-driven conduct by a State agency against a religious institution. Reading the State's search warrant and legal filings in this case is chilling. This armed incursion on a faith-based school shows that the State wants nothing less than to take jurisdictional control over Christian education in California. This is rooted in its disagreement with millennia-old religious values."
The school operates under the ministry of Teen Rescue, a non-profit. RCVA is a private boarding school located in Northern California with the purpose of providing a safe, structured, and supportive setting for our students. We provide year-round schooling with ongoing open enrollment. Many parents who turn to RVCA are exhausted from their teenager’s rebellion, promiscuity, drug abuse, anger or other self-destructive behaviors. These behaviors are often brought on by the lack of structure and personal attention in public and private day schools. We believe in the existence of the Creator God and introduce children to the Lord Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve. More here
