FSU Reinstates CLS Chapter Funding

Last night, the Student Government Association at Florida State University reinstated funding of the Christian Legal Society chapter at FSU's law school.

Earlier this month, the student government froze funding already allocated to the chapter on the ground that it "discriminates" on the basis of religion and sexual orientation because it draws its leaders and those who select them from among those to voluntarily profess faith in Christ and strive to comply with certain conduct standards. Homosexual rights activists had sought the revocation of funding.

A media account of the original suspension of funding is here.
