More colleges declare they will not recognize some Christian groups
Catholic World News - June 12, 2014
Citing concerns about discrimination, more colleges are declaring that they will no longer recognize Christian groups, especially evangelical groups, as official student organizations.
The trend is “driven by the universities’ desire to rid their campuses of bias, particularly against gays and lesbians,” according to The New York Times. In addition, the student organizations’ requirement that leaders be Christian has led to accusations of discrimination against non-Christians.

How ironic ! The bastions of free speech (only if you agree with them) now say they wasnt to ban Christian groups or organizations because they do not want to be biased. What claptrap. This is nothing more than the left wing groups trying to destroy the 1st Amendment and our Constitution. Beware they do not release the dogs of war to try and destroy anyone who is Christian.

Interesting strategy - fight discrimination by discriminating.

Ultimately the only bias and prejudice and bigotry on campuses will be against those who follow Jesus Christ. Hmm. Read Robert Reilly's new book.
