Those darn Christian groups.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a group of devout practioners of Religious Secularism who believe they have the right to make it from cradle to grave without encountering a non-nontheist, have taken offense that a Christian group operates on University of Minnesota campus.
The Freedom from Religion Foundation in Wisconsin has filed suit against the Minnesota Faith/Health Consortium at the University of Minnesota.

The suit, filed Friday in federal court in Minneapolis, alleges that the consortium promotes personal faith or faith communities in health care and uses state taxpayer funds.

The Faith/Health Consortium comprises Fairview Health Services; Luther Seminary and the University of Minnesota Academic Health Center.

The suit asks for an order barring the defendants from continuing to operate the consortium and from providing graduate programming. It also asks for an order prohibiting the defendants from using state funds to promote religion through its Faith/Health Clinical Leadership Program.
Fret not. The U will still offer spiritual assistance. If you're gay, lesbian, bisexual or confused whether you're a boy or a girl, the U's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Consortium offers a form of spiritual support that has managed to sneek under the FFRF's inclusive radar.
