Supreme Court hands victory to Catholic student organization

Catholic World News - March 08, 2011

The United States Supreme Court has let stand an appellate court decision that ordered the University of Wisconsin not to discriminate against a Catholic organization in funding student activities.

“The constitutional rights of Christian student organizations should be recognized by university officials, just as they recognize those rights for other student groups,” said an attorney for the Alliance Defense Fund, which represented the Badger Catholic student organization in court. “The university funded the advocacy and expression of other student organizations but singled out a Catholic student organization to exclude funding some of its expression based purely upon its religious content, and that’s simply not constitutional.”
