7th lawsuit filed against University of Wisconsin systems over flawed interpretation of church-state relationship

The University of Wisconsin seems to have a problem with free speech issues, especially when they intersect with religious faith.

The latest case involves two students at the school’s Eau Claire branch “who are being denied credit for mandatory community service simply because their activities involved religion.”

This does seem like an odd one but if you go read the article UW Systems have lost these battles repeatedly all the way up to SCOTUS.
