Georgia Tech, Homosexuality, Religion, and Republicans

Ruth Malhotra and Orit Sklar, two members of the College Republicans filed a suit against Georgia Tech on March 16 claiming that the campus' gay-friendly Safe Space program "denigrate[s] religions that oppose [homosexual] behavior." The lawsuit states that the "Safe Space is a program explicitly infused with religious meaning and purpose, and is designed in part to advance a specific religious view of homosexual behavior." Neither political nor religious groups at Georgia Tech receive funding, while Safe Space does receive funding putting these groups at a disadvantage in terms of free speech according to the David French of Alliance Defense Fund, which is representing the students.
