In case you were wondering if religious freedom is really under attack, consider a case out of Iowa that's back in the news. The University of Iowa had a policy that said that student groups that held Biblical views on marriage and human sexuality were incompatible with the school's mission. Consequently, the university “de-recognized” a small Christian student group called Business Leaders in Christ because it screens its leaders to make sure that they “agree with and can represent the group’s religious beliefs.” Fortunately, a federal judge overruled the school and put a hold on the policy because it was inconsistent with how they treated other groups. Much of the news media missed the story. It was an important ruling, a good ruling and one that will hopefully reassert our First Amendment ideals and protections back to the college campus.
