UNCG will recognize Christian group

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The University of North Carolina at Greensboro will recognize a Christian student organization that had filed a lawsuit over a previous decision to deny them the status of an official campus group.

In a statement Tuesday, university spokeswoman Helen Dennison Hebert said the denial had been based on a misunderstanding of the school’s policy regarding student groups.

The anti-abortion group Make Up Your Own Mind wanted to require members to adhere to a Christian statement of faith. University officials initially denied their application for recognition, saying the group didn’t qualify as a religious organization.

The Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian legal group, filed a lawsuit last month on the group’s behalf.

Jeremy Tedesco, a lawyer representing the group, says they’re glad, but waiting on further word from the university.
