The conflict began when the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco withdrew recognition of the student chapter of CLS because, while the group permitted any student to participate in its events, it required that its officers and voting members affirm a statement of faith, part of which asserted that biblical standards prohibit "all acts of sexual conduct outside of God's design for marriage between one man and one woman [including] fornication, adultery, and homosexual conduct." In light of these implications, CLS has worked mightily to narrow its argument, emphasizing that its policy remains focused on prospective officers' beliefs (for example, do they affirm Christian teaching?) rather than on their status (for example, sexual orientation), and that the law school could constitutionally prohibit groups from discriminating based on status.
