A student member of Business Leaders in Christ, Marcus Miller, filed a complaint with the university last February after the group denied his request to serve as its vice president. Miller's request was rejected after he disclosed he was gay.As predicted by Pope Benedict XVI, the Church will become smaller and more fundamentalist. This is how it happens.
The group says it denied Miller's request because he rejected its religious beliefs and would not follow them.
Miller did not respond to messages seeking comment about the lawsuit. He has since started his own university-recognized, Jesus-centered student organization, Love Works, to advocate for justice on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual issues.
The group's loss of registration as an on-campus student organization means it can no longer reserve campus meeting space, participate in student recruitment fairs, access funds from student activity fees or use university-wide communication services.If they were future business leaders, they'd market themselves as "the only real Christian group at the University of Iowa."
