(CAMPUS REFORM) -- Duke University’s student government senate voted to deny recognition to a Christian group on Wednesday because of its leadership team requirements, which do not allow LGBT members to be on the leadership team.
Members of the student senate raised concerns about Young Life’s policy, according to The Duke Chronicle. The senate also talked about how this could discourage people who are LGBT from joining the club.
