FFRF Halts University of Minnesota “Faith/Health” Entanglement (September 7, 2006)

The University of Minnesota agreed in September 2006 to drop plans to sponsor a “faith health leadership course” after removing itself from a “faith health consortium,” in response to a federal lawsuit filed by FFRF on March 25, 2005. The “faith/health leadership program” was to be the centerpiece of the Minnesota Faith Health Consortium and a national model, in which the University of Minnesota would train professionals to be “faith/health leaders,” offering devotional, not academic classes for seminary credit at a public university.
