LDS Conservatives Criticize UVSC Anti-Bias Rules
Deseret News (AP) 21Jan00 D4

Some students at Utah Valley State College want the school to change rules that run counter to their group's constitution. The students belong to UVSC's unofficial chapter of the Eagle Forum Collegians. President Kendra Ruzicka wants a requirement lifted that clubs are not allowed to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. "Our only concern is that in our constitution, that based on moral reasons we are opposed to the homosexual lifestyle."

Group vice-president Ben Sessions claims he failed an English assignment because he wrote in support of the LDS Church position against same-sex marriage. The school has referred a letter from the student group's lawyer to their lawyer. They promise a "timely" response.
