University 'reinstates' Christian group

(DAILY CALLER) The University of Michigan has backed down after allegedly banning the Asian chapter of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship from its campus because the Christian group requires its leaders to be Christians.

The decision puts a provisional end to a he-said, she-said tussle between the group and the school that came to a head last week.

Members of Michigan’s Asian InterVarsity say University of Michigan officials insisted on a meeting last December. At the meeting, school officials said the group’s constitution violated the school’s nondiscrimination policy by requiring students in leadership positions to sign a statement of faith.
