-Update on Vanderbilt U. ‘Nondiscrimination Policy’ Directed Against Christian Groups

Vanderbilt University administrators held a town hall meeting on Tuesday, concerning the university enforcement of a ‘nondiscrimination policy’ for all on-campus student groups. 4 out of 5 Christian groups on campus have been found to be in violation of the policy which does not allow groups to require their leaders to adhere to a core standard of beliefs or conduct.

Apparently the meeting did not go all that well when a large crowd who wanted to attend was turned away and only 200 students were allowed in for the official forum.

According to this article, the controversy started when a gay student was kicked out of the leadership of a Christian fraternity:

Controversy ensued when the university asked nearly a dozen organizations to comply with their "all-comers" policy banning discrimination based on "race, sex, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, military service, or genetic information" after a gay student was allegedly forced to resign from a Christian fraternity last year.

Five Christian groups including InterVarsity’s Graduate Christian Fellowship and the Christian Legal Society were put on "provisional status" for selecting their leaders based on their religious beliefs and values, a qualification the university said violated their policy.

Response: The controversy revolves around a so-called ‘nondiscrimination policy’ which ends up actually discriminating against all Christian groups who want to maintain a leadership which reflects their Christian beliefs and standards of conduct.

Universities all across the country are initiating similar policies for their on-campus groups which could be used to actually discriminate against Christian student groups all in the name of ‘nondiscrimination.’

What about Muslim groups, are they now subjected to these same rules as the Christians. I don’t see them mentioned at all. Also, Jewish and Buddhist organizations? Right now enforcement and extra scrutiny only seems to be directed against Christians groups even if it does apply to all.             *Top

    Your definitely right. There is no one attacking any other religious groups in America except Christians. It is truly an testament to the power of God. No one is scared of Muslims or Buddah but they are trying to put our God down.
