A Christian organization at the University of Iowa that was disbanded for not granting a gay member a leadership position has been reinstated after a judge ruled against the school’s “selective enforcement” of its nondiscrimination policy.
What was the issue?
Business Leaders in Christ refused to give a leadership position to an openly gay student who refused to sign the group’s Statement of Faith.
The statement reads: “Members should conduct their careers without the greed, racism, sexual immorality and selfishness that too often arise in business, political and cultural institutions.”
The university shut the organization down, saying that membership and participation in campus organizations cannot be limited based on sexual orientation, among other things.
