US Supreme Court weighs rights of Christian group on California campus

Catholic World News - April 20, 2010

On April 19 the US Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case that pits a campus Christian group against the University of California's Hastings law school. The student organization, which requires members to adhere to a Christian moral code, is challenging a school policy that denies funding to any group that is not open to all students. Notes the group's attorney, Michael McConnell: "If Hastings is correct, a student who does not even believe in the Bible is entitled to demand to lead a Christian Bible study."
