MURFREESBORO, Tenn (WMOT) -- The Scarritt-Bennett Center in Nashville is holding a conference this weekend designed to help Christians explore issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.
The Center’s Boo Tyson says the seminar is open to anyone interested in the intersection of faith and LGBTQ issues. She especially hopes the conference will attract those in leadership positions in the Christian community.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Registered campus groups at Vanderbilt University are no longer permitted to bar students who don't share the groups' mission or beliefs from leadership positions.
That non-discrimination policy was reiterated at a packed campus meeting Tuesday night. A university spokesperson says all students must be able to join a student group and run for leadership positions in order for it to be registered.
