Christian group banned from two dozen campuses

California State University, is “de-recognizing” local chapters of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, an evangelical Christian group. InterVarsity has over  860 chapters in the United States. The reason for the sanction is that the group has refused to sign-off on the university's non-discrimination policy.

After more than a year of discussions with the university system the group continues to deny leadership roles to non-Christians and gays. Where have we seen this movie before?

In contrast Hillel, the largest Jewish student organization, reports that some local chapters have elected non-Jews to some posts and is accepting of LGBT leaders and participants. Catholic and Muslim groups have also signed the non-discrimination agreement. Apparently InterVarsity does not have enough faith in its own membership to elect suitable leaders.
