The Colorado School of Mines sought to boost fundraising by offering donors a nameplate with an inscription of their choice, only to reject one donor’s message because it included references to two Bible verses.

The Alliance Defending Freedom announced in a press release Thursday that it has filed a federal lawsuit against the school alleging that its refusal to accept the request was a violation of the donor’s constitutional rights.
