The Christian Legal Society is suing Pennsylvania State University on behalf of a Christian student group, after the university has required the group to allow homosexuals and non-Christians to become officers, reported AgapePress.
Six months ago, the public university denied official recognition to the DiscipleMakers Christian Fellowship, arguing the university had too many Christian groups on campus. After being sued by the Christian Legal Society, the university agreed to provide DiscipleMakers with funding and office space.
However, the school recently told the Christian student group that it would lose recognition again if it selected its officers and members on the basis of "sexual orientation" or religion, prompting another lawsuit.
Lawyer Tim Tracey thinks that no group on campus, under the logic of Penn State's non-discrimination policy, could be guaranteed the right to maintain its integrity.
