Description Students at a high school attempted to found a Bible club, but were not allowed to. The students initiated a lawsuit according to section 1983 for violation of their First Amendment rights. Equal Access Act did not require school district to charter Bible club where its proposed charter would have, in violation of district policy, limited full membership to students willing to sign a "statement of faith" professing belief that "the Bible [is] the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God," that "salvation is an undeserved gift from God," and that only by "acceptance of Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, through His death on the cross for my sins, is my faith made real." District policy barring chartered clubs from discriminating in membership on the basis of religion did not violate potential members’ First Amendment rights to freedom of association and free exercise of religion, nor does it constitute an establishment of religion or violate the Equal Protection Clause.
