Vanderbilt's discrimination policy drives Catholic group off campus March 28, 2012
Father John Sims Baker, the chaplain of Vanderbilt Catholic, said that the group will become a private, off-campus organization because of the "discriminatory non-discrimination policy" set forth by the university. "Our purpose has always been to share the Gospel and proudly to proclaim our Catholic faith," he said. "What other reason could there be for a Catholic organization at Vanderbilt?"
A Vanderbilt official expressed regret at the Catholic group's decision, but voiced no misgivings about the policy that prompted it and said that most on-campus groups "easily will comply with the policy."
