This fall, the University of Iowa de-registered Business Leaders in Christ (BLinC) as a student group because they would not allow an LGBT student to become a leader who disagreed with the group’s position on the authority of the Bible and what it means to live it out. In order to re-register as a student group they were told they would have to change what they belief, as well as, their selection process for students. The group this week, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, filed a lawsuit against the University.

Shane Vander Hart discussed BLinC v. University of Iowa with Daniel Blomberg, legal counsel for Becket, who is one of the attorneys on the case. Blomberg discussed what happened, what the group did to try to address the complaint, a meeting he had with the University along with the students, what the University of Iowa’s decision means, and what our listeners can do to help. They also discussed how this is part of a larger problem on college campuses.
