San Jose State University in California has criticized Ratio Christi -- a grassroots campus student ministry -- for its decision to "de-recognize" the campus chapter as punishment for the ministry's "discriminatory" policy for leadership positions, the Christian Post website reports today (December 14, 2014).
School officials wrote to Ratio Christi, explaining their action is as per a new California State University Executive Order on how an organization selects its officers, the ministry revealed on its website.
The ministry requires its chapter officers to be Christian and holding biblical beliefs, and the state of California now deems that as "discriminatory."
"De-recognition" means that the school chapter of the ministry is no longer eligible for student funding and financial services, and cannot participate in student organization fairs, ceremonies. or training.
