Religious freedom comes at a price—one that Florida State University student Jack Denton no longer has to pay.

The university has settled a religious freedom lawsuit on behalf of former student Jack Denton, who was discriminated against for sharing his faith in a private student club chat.

Denton served as the Student Senate president at FSU. Prior to this role, he was actively involved in student government. He shared his Catholic faith with his peers—many of whom he considered friends—in a private chat.

The conversation debated the ethicality of Black Lives Matter and organizations like ACLU as they relate to Catholic beliefs. Denton held that the groups advocate for beliefs contrary to Catholic teachings.

His private messages were shared on social media, at which time the words spoken in love and concern were misrepresented and taken out of context. He was then removed from his office and forced to undergo religious tests.
