Planning for future discrimination

It’s interesting. I guess most of these religious organizations are not sure what to do with the possibility of dealing with openly gay Christians, let alone married gay Christians.

The head of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship says its student leaders must be Christians who abide by biblical norms for purity. Alec Hill says that rules out anyone engaged in either a homosexual or heterosexual relationship outside marriage. Asked whether a homosexual who is legally married in Massachusetts could be a student leader, Hill says, “That hasn’t come up yet, but it will.” The InterVarsity president says, “There’s legal authority and there’s scriptural authority, and we would go with the higher authority” in defining marriage. The Christian student group’s leadership qualifications have put it at odds with some universities’ non-discrimination policies.
