These threats were issued because the groups did not allow membership and voting privileges to students hostile to their religious views. There was also a mandate that the groups adopt policies that allow all students to hold office in the religious groups they oppose.
The policy was so absurd that it should not have required a lawsuit to correct. But it did.
After a religious group filed suit, a federal judge issued an injunction against UNC that caused the policy to be amended. Eventually, Glenn George and her husband Gene Nichols – then the Dean of UNC School of Law – moved on to William and Mary. And they took their penchant for harassing Christians with them.
So, remember to sign the petition urging Nichol’s Christ-o-phobic policy to be fully overturned. Then, hopefully, another petition will be initiated with the goal of firing both Gene Nichols and his wife. They, not the Cross of Christ, are the offensive symbols that need to be removed from the campus of William and Mary.
