Anti-Christian bigotry at the University of Wisconsin

From the Badger Herald...

Twenty-five Wisconsin legislators sent a letter to Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager Wednesday, asking her legal opinion on a University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire policy, which they feel may be unconstitutional.

The policy, which first made headlines earlier this month, prohibits resident assistants from leading Bible studies in their residence halls...

Echoing comments made earlier in the week by U.S. Rep. Mark Green, R-Wis., Suder said the UW-Eau Claire policy is embarrassing the state of Wisconsin on a national stage.

“The UW System administration is quickly becoming a laughingstock for anyone who seriously cares about free speech,” [State Rep. Scott] Suder said. “People nationwide are just simply shaking their heads at this policy.”...

In addition to the questionable legality of the policy, Suder expressed his concern over what he perceives as an anti-Christian mentality throughout the UW System.

“They’re certainly going to great lengths to make certain that Christian Bible study is not allowed in dorm rooms,” Suder said in an earlier interview. “It appears to be a concerted effort by some in the UW administration to limit Christian free thought and that is unacceptable.”

And how much taxpayer money will these bigots burn through before they finally lose in court?
