High Court Rejects Christian Campus Groups’ Appeal

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has turned down an appeal from Christian groups that challenged a discrimination policy at California state universities.

The justices on Monday are leaving in place a federal appeals court ruling that found that the policy doesn’t violate the Constitution. The policy says officially recognized campus groups can’t discriminate based on religion or sexual orientation.

A Christian fraternity and a sorority at San Diego State University sued in 2005, arguing that the policy violates their religious freedom. The groups are restricted to Christian members.

The case is Alpha Delta Chi-Delta Chapter v. Reed, 11-744.

  • debbie campbell

    This has nothing to do with the story I have a question. You brag as a new channel that you ask questions to get answers. I think that’s great but you ask the same questions everybody asks about the same things everybody asks, I have a question I received and e-mail and would very much like to know if it is true and if you would address it or because of what i stated before you only report what you are told the following is the e-mail

    —–Original Message—– Subject: Obama Stops Soldier From Speaking

    Listen to what Admiral Searborough is saying. We are loosing our God given freedoms at an alarming rate.

    Obama stops soldier from speaking

    Something you’ll want to be aware of: Obama stops soldier from speaking ..Sent by Retired Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington, Va.”I wanted to give you all some disturbing information on our wonderful president. I work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation, which provides hunting and fishing trips to children with life-threatening illnesses. This past weekend we had our annual banquet/fundraiser event in Starkville. As a part of our program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube to come; he’s a highly decorated U.S. Army Green Beret and inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and didn’t have much of a chance for survival. Greg is stationed at Ft. Bragg , NC and received permission from his commanding officer to come speak at our function. Everything was on go until Obama made a policy that NO U.S. SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT ANY FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE. Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event with us. Didn’t know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. You’re just starting to see the Problem. This is just how the Nazis did it in the 1930s — slowly, one step at a time. This should be forwarded to everyone regardless of party affiliation! We have lost 50% of our freedom of speech in the last 2 years. The news media is not allowed to print anything or say anything negative about Obama.

    I will wait to see if you even answer the e-mail that is not an auto reply thank you a loyal Good Day Sacramento watcher do not leave home before 10

      You have no god given freedoms in the military. You follow orders established in the UCMJ and you do not speak out against the commander in chief publicly. And sorry to disappoint you but the military cannot show support for 1 religion. The military is a diverse group of Americans of many faiths.

      It has always been that way and has nothing to do with the president. To compare it to nazi’s is ridiculous.

      and i case you wondering I am a retired US Marine

    Just one more important reason to vote him out of office proto.
