Vanderbilt University has decided five on-campus Christian groups are in violation of the school's non-discrimination policy and has placed the groups on "provisional status," OneNewsNow.com reports. Each group's constitution includes a clause restricting leadership positions to those who share the group's core beliefs, goals and values, and university officials told the groups this violated the non-discrimination policy. Should the groups not adhere, they risk being shut down. American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer said it was ridiculous to forbid student organizations from deciding the standards that their own leaders must meet, and he said he was urging AFA supporters to contact the university's chancellor in protest.
