[Christian News] BOZEMAN, Mont. — A high school in Montana recently revoked the official status of a Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) student group because it viewed the sponsorship as being a violation of the state Constitution. Attorneys representing the group argue that it is wrong to deny FCA equal privileges simply because of its religious nature.
“To the extent that you believe [Bozeman High School] violates the Montana Constitution or the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution by giving BHS FCA the same privileges as other non-curricular student groups, you are mistaken,” reads a letter submitted by the religious liberties legal group Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).
“BHS’s sponsorship of BHS FCA does not ‘advocate sectarian tenets’ any more than sponsorship of Sticker Club advocates for the use of more stickers,” it argues. “BHS FCA must simply be granted the same privileges that sponsorship affords to other clubs.”
According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, Bozeman High School officials revoked the status after four female students complained that FCA “discriminates” against homosexuals. They noted that FCA requires its leaders to take a pledge of sexual purity and considers sexual activity between the same gender to be sinful.
