Federal Court: U-Iowa Discriminated Against Christian Student Groups

On Wednesday, a federal court ruled that the University of Iowa had illegally targeted religious groups for requiring their leaders to follow their faith. As such, Business Leaders in Christ (BLC), a Christian student group on the University of Iowa’s campus, secured a permanent place on campus.

At the hearing February 1, it was clear the university had not only kicked BLC off campus because of their expression of faith, but had targeted and blacklisted 31 other student groups— only religious ones. The court ruled that the university must stop its unequal treatment of religious student organizations in the name of “anti-discrimination.”


Great wrestlers though.

You'd have thought that the Holy Constitution was so clear on this point that even the sort of berks who run universities could understand it.

But a question for Mr Smith: could a private university get off with that sort of behaviour?
