"University Of Buffalo Suspends Christian Fellowship For Anti-Gay Discrimination"

The University of Buffalo Student Association (SA) has indefinitely suspended the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship pending an investigation of allegations that the group violated the campus non-discrimination statement by forcing its openly gay treasurer to resign. The now ex-treasurer, Steven Jackson, requested that the entire group not be punished for the actions of the executive board, but the SA upheld the suspension. Consequences for the club’s violation of the campus non-discrimination policy could include abolishment of its faith-based agreements, financial sanctions, extended suspension, or complete dissolution.
