College Shuts Down Student Bible Study

Photo Credit: Town Hall Officials at a Florida college ordered a group of students to shut down a Bible study they were holding in the privacy of a dorm room – because it violated the rules.

The incident occurred at Rollins College in the midst of a campus battle over whether religious groups that require their leaders to follow specific religious beliefs are violating the school’s non-discrimination policies.

Four students affiliated with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship were holding an informal Bible study in the common area of a dorm suite. Midway through the study, a resident hall assistant entered the room and asked the student leading the study to step outside.

“He was told they were no longer allowed inside the dorm – even with the express consent of the students to do Bible studies,” said Greg Jao, InterVarsity’s national field director. “They said it was because InterVarsity was no longer a registered student group on campus.”

The well-known Christian ministry was de-recognized as an official campus organization after they refused to comply with the college’s non-discrimination policy.

    Any one who is against Christ, is a anti-christ. Time is so short. What with these people do when Jesus comes to judge the living and the dead. To his enemies: Depart from me, I do not know you. Modern man is trying to distroy christianity.

  • He should’ve had said they were Muslims trying to find ways to mock Christians. They would have left him alone then I bet.

    I guess we’ll have to see what those supposed christian alumnus of Rollin’s will do concerning this issue. Especially when the college seeks donations for their endowment fund.
