The InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapter has been suspended from New York University at Buffalo after being accused of discriminating against a gay student, Mission Network News reports. A few months ago, a student leader of InterVarsity was asked to step down for being in a same-sex relationship; he did so willingly, but the gay-rights group on campus filed a complaint that InterVarsity was discriminating against him for being gay. While the university has an "all-inclusive" policy in terms of who can join student groups, InterVarsity vice president Jim Lundgren said, "This involved leadership, not membership." Members of the university's student government association voted Friday to suspend the chapter, but Lundgren said InterVarsity was already taking action to work on being reinstated.
