Kicked off Iowa campus over leadership standards, Christian group sues
Iowa City, Aug 8, 2018 / 10:46 am (CNA/EWTN News).- A Christian student group is suing the University of Iowa after being kicked off campus because it requires its leaders to be Christians.
“Universities should allow students the space to form their own groups that challenge and grow their sincere beliefs,” said Daniel Blomberg, senior counsel at Becket, which is representing InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in its lawsuit.
“Banning religious groups from having religious leaders just flattens diversity and impoverishes the campus,” he said in an Aug. 6 statement.
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship was one of almost 40 student groups deregistered by the University of Iowa
