Some Christian Groups Disturbed by New Vandy Rules

Jan 30, 2012

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt University has scheduled a campus meeting Tuesday evening on its requirement that Christian student organizations comply with its non-discrimination policy.

That policy says any student must be able to seek leadership positions in approved campus organizations.

The Christian groups say that violates their right to be led by fellow believers who support their beliefs and principles, including opposition to sex outside of marriage between a husband and wife.

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is asking for prayer "in support of religious freedom at Vanderbilt University."

Vanderbilt says Tuesday's meeting will feature the school's provost, its general counsel and the dean of its divinity school.
