University of Michigan Kicks Christian Club off Campus
This is nuts!



The University of Michigan is accused of kicking an InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapter off campus because the group requires its leaders to be Christians – an apparent violation of the university’s non-discrimination policy.

Greg Jao, InterVarsity’s national field director, told Fox News the Asian chapter of the group was directed to either revise its constitution – or else be forced off campus.

“The university is sending the message that religious voices are suspect and should be marginalized,” Jao said. “I think it sends the message that the university does not understand the nature of religious beliefs and the convictions of religious students.”

A University of Michigan spokesperson released a statement saying that all registered student organizations must agree to “sign the university’s standard non-discrimination agreement” and “submit their constitution for review.”

Last December, members of the group were summoned before university officials who told them there was an issue with the section of the club constitution related to leadership.

In order for students to be InterVarsity leaders they must sign a statement of faith. But the university said that requirement violated their non-discrimination policy.

Sara Chang, an InterVarsity staff member at the University of Michigan, said they were given the option of submitting a revised constitution.

Instead, Chang and the other students decided to stand firm in their faith.

“For us, there’s no other option than to hold to the tenets of our faith,” she told Fox News. “We want to model a lifestyle of integrity. Holding the Bible as the inspired, divine word of God and seeing the commands for us to choose leaders who have a vibrant faith in Jesus – is obviously something very important that we want to continue to uphold.”

InterVarsity has 10 chapters at Michigan and he suspects the others will soon be called upon to make similar changes in their constitutions.

“The sad place that we’ve arrived at is that certain campuses in pursuit of tolerance and diversity – are now saying they will use those standards to discriminate and marginalize viewpoints they disagree with,” he said.

Jao said the issue is whether religious groups can use religious criteria to select their leaders.

“I can’t imagine the Muslim Student Association saying you don’t have to be a Muslim to help lead our group,” he said. “I think the university’s decision will impact any religious group that’s being honest about their leadership criteria.”

Last year Vanderbilt University banned 14 Christian groups from campus after they refused to change their bylaws to put them in compliance with the non-discrimination policy. One of those groups was InterVaristy Fellowship.

Whatever!

The issue is that this is their Christian group having the right to vote amongst themselves to decide what kind of leaders they want in position to lead them. Not the university's decision. This University is not respecting their group and this can be held under religious discrimination (their discriminating the rights and beliefs of the club's religion). However, knowing the times we are in, this could be what we can look forward to in US for laws to be twisted to fit what "they" want and say.

Then they better not ask why God "let" something bad happen if it does because they have made it clear He is not welcome there. Absent God's grace and guidance, evil will fill the void.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787
