A Christian student group at a university in the Midwest is taking a stand for their beliefs, even after being kicked off campus for choosing those beliefs over the school's standards.
Business Leaders in Christ, known as BLinC, at the University of Iowa wants those in its leadership to to adhere to the group's religious beliefs. However, school officials insist the club "revise" their beliefs to meet school standards.
Becket attorney Daniel Blomberg has sued the school on BLinC's behalf.
"If you're going to lead our Bible studies, if you're going to interpret the Bible for us, if you're going to lead us in prayer, all they're asking is that you also agree with us about who we're praying to," Blomberg details. "That seems like a really reasonable thing to ask. And unfortunately, it's very unreasonable that the university has insisted that they have to leave."
Blomberg tells OneNewsNow talks with school officials seemed to be going well until it was time to implement the club's policy.
"When the rubber met the road, when the decision time came, the school said, 'You know, unless you change your religious beliefs, you're not welcome on our campus,'" the attorney relays. "And what the students said -- I thought was really admirable -- they said, 'We didn't make up our religious beliefs, and we certainly can't change them for a government official.'"
Blomberg points out that BLinC allows anyone to join, but they require anyone in leadership of the group to adhere to the club's Christian beliefs.
