Forbes to Appear on FoxNews Thursday Morning to Discuss Vanderbilt University's Treatment of Campus Religious GroupsPosted by Joe Hack | October 19, 2011
Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04), co-Chairman of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, announced today that he will appear on the FoxNews Channel’s “Fox and Friends” program this Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 6:50 AM (EST) to discuss Vanderbilt University's treatment of campus religious groups.
WHO: Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04),
On October 6, 2011, Congressman Randy Forbes led 22 Members of Congress in sending a letter to Chancellor Nicholas Zeppos of Vanderbilt University, urging him to ensure that the school’s nondiscrimination policy is not being interpreted in a manner that discriminates against religious student groups. Several religious student organizations at Vanderbilt University, including the Christian Legal Society and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, were placed on “provisional status” for requiring their student leaders to share the groups’ religious beliefs. Student organizations need official university approval in order to use school meeting rooms and facilities; access university listserves, groupmail, and web space; and use office space and equipment in the university’s student center.
