Conflict on Campus: Religious Liberty versus Gay Rights? Center Conversations: An Occasional Publication of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Number 6.
Ethics and Public Policy Center, Washington, DC.
This publication contains statements from panelists at a seminar exploring recent campus conflicts over whether Christian student groups can bar gay and lesbian students from positions of leadership. The discussion centered on the decision of the Tufts University student judiciary to "derecognize" the Tufts Christian Fellowship (an affiliate of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship) because it refused to consider for leadership a member who rejected the group's belief that the Bible prohibits homosexual practice. The five seminar panelists were David A. French, Patricia M. Logue, Stephen Macedo, Chai R. Feldblum, and William A. Galston. (EV)
