Ball State University: Threat to Religous Group’s Freedom of Association

Category: Cases, Religious Liberty
Schools: Ball State University

In May 2000, religious freedom was under assault at Ball State University when administrators sought to stifle unpopular views and sincere religious convictions. The Christian Student Foundation was required by the school to adopt language in its constitution that would violate its fundamental Biblical principles. The student group requested an exemption, but Ball State ignored the issue for more than a year until FIRE intervened in May 2000. FIRE joined forces with the Christian Legal Society (CLS) to protect the constitutional rights to religious freedom and voluntary association of the Christian Student Foundation.
