University Refuses Christian Groups

University of Wisconsin officials are being warned their refusal to recognize Christian student groups is illegal.

Not a surprising development considering the stance most colleges take towards Christianity. What’s interesting is that, in this case at least, the university is being publicly challenged on the issue.

There is no denying that students can still participate in similar groups off-campus, but this is typically not feasable given hectic class schedules and difficulty finding transportation to leave the campus. If the Christian students at that university were instead enrolled in distance education, they would likely have the time and flexibility needed to participate in such groups.
