    GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A federal appeals court has ordered University of Florida officials to recognize a Christian fraternity.
    Judges from the 11th U.S. Circuit in Atlanta issued an injunction Wednesday ordering the action while a discrimination lawsuit filed by Beta Upsilon Chi against the school moves forward.
    The fraternity hasn't been allowed to join the off-campus system of fraternities and sororities because its rules bar religious discrimination. The fraternity requires its members to be Christians.
    Yea this is great.:thumbs: :applause:
