BSU Christians Claim Discrimination

Item: 6 religious students claims Boise State discriminates/Idaho Statesman

More Info: Six Boise State University students have filed suit in federal court complaining that Boise State Universities does not permit use of student activity fees for religious groups. Attorneys for Christian Legal Society's Center for Law & Religious Freedom in Springfield, Va., filed the lawsuit Thursday. The complaint alleges the school's policy violates the First Amendment and is viewpoint discrimination. The suit asks that BSU be prevented from requiring and allocating student activity fees until it stops its policy.

Question: Does Boise State's policy discriminate against student religious groups?
