Christian student group sues University of Iowa
A group called the Business Leaders in Christ at the University of Iowa recently sued the school after the group was disbanded because the organization refused to allow a gay student to hold a position of leadership. The lawsuit came about after now-former member Marcus Miller, a gay student, was rejected when he applied to serve as the organization’s vice president. The Business Leaders in Christ allowed anyone to attend meetings, but reserved its position’s of leadership for those willing to affirm their statement of belief. The statement said that the members of the group “embrace, not reject, their God-given sex,” and that “Every other sexual relationship beyond this is outside of God’s design and is not in keeping with God’s original plan for humanity.” Miller filed a complaint with the university, which led to the organization being shut down.
