US Supreme Court stays out of Bible club question

US Supreme Court stays out of Bible club question

The Supreme Court will not stop a school district from blocking a group of Christian students from forming a Bible club on campus.
The court refused to hear an appeal Monday from high school students who wanted to form the Truth Bible Club at Kentridge High School in Washington state in 2001.
The school refused to let the group be chartered as a club. They cited the group's name and requirements that students pledge to Jesus Christ to vote in the club. The club's would-be founders then sued the Kent School District.
A federal appeals court said the district did not violate the students' First Amendment rights by requiring them to allow all students full membership in their club.
