(Fox News) — A Christian student group is suing the University of Iowa for discrimination after they were booted off campus for requiring student leaders to embrace Christian religious beliefs—including a clause on sexual morality.
The university stripped The Business Leaders in Christ of their status on campus after a member claimed he was denied a leadership position for being openly gay. The group, however, says the member was rejected because “he expressly stated that he rejected BLinC’s religious beliefs and would not follow them.”
“Members should conduct their careers without the greed, racism, sexual immorality and selfishness that all too often arise in business, political, and cultural institutions,” a portion of group’s statement of faith says.
University of Iowa spokesperson Anne Bassett issued a statement to Fox News accusing BLinC of violating the school’s Human Rights Policy and the Iowa Civil Rights Act.
