A new anti-discrimination policy is costing a Virginia University some funding.
The Virginia Baptist Mission usually donates around 230-thousand dollars a year to the University of Richmond.
But because the school has adopted an anti-discrimination policy for gays and lesbians, the Mission Board has voted to withdraw that funding.
The vote represents a growing separation between the church and the school it founded in 1830.
