Restore Religious Freedom at Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt University Harasses Religious Students

September 23, 2011—Vanderbilt University has deferred recognition of several religious student organizations because they want their student leaders to agree with the groups’ core religious beliefs.  Religious groups expect their leaders to lead Bible studies, prayer, and worship at their meetings.  Vanderbilt claims such an expectation violates university policies.  But isn’t Vanderbilt the one violating university policies when it harasses religious students for their religious beliefs?
