Christian Campus Groups Win Big In Us Supreme Court

03.10.11 | Sarah Harnisch

 There was a big victory this week for Christian student activities in college campuses across the nation. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal on a case that would have banned student fee money to pay for faith-based activities-- including prayer. It means the last ruling on the case stands. That ruling was in an appeals court, and was a 2-to-1 vote in favor of religious groups on campus. The case was brought about by the University of Wisconson at Madison, who said the decision intruded on university rules designed to protect the separation of church and state. The Supreme Court said once a state university supports student activities that involve leadership development or counseling, it can't exclude some activities simply because they are religious in nature.
