Sorry - I'm stuck on the oxymoron between "institute of higher learning" and "religion".

Unless it's from an anthropological viewpoint...

Oh no! Doesn't the university understand that equality has no place in a religious group?

The groups choose to equate themselves with the University. If they cannot abide by the rules they signed up to, then they should disband. IF they don't like the rules, they should not have signed the form acknowledging the University's rules for student groups. Very plain and clear COMMON SENSE!

Religious groups by their nature are exclusive.

This whole concept of "inclusivity" and "everyone is equal" is ridiculous, stupid, and demonstrably false.

The U.S. Constitution guarantees equality of the laws, not equality of everything.

Discriminatory special protections for homosexuals are *ALWAYS* used to trample on the rights of others.

All groups are by nature exclusive. What would a group be that accepted everybody?

Okay. Now why would a college student want to spend the next four years in intimate contact with people who thought he was sick and should go to hell?

Your speaking of course of the right religious people want to bash Gay people right?

Their religious faith orders them to do this right?

Yes, I think Pope Benedict XVI made that the First Commandment when he took over some years ago.

Instead of your ad hominem opinions why don't you list those "special" protections that are *ALWAYS* used to trample on the rights of others.

Bring it on, or just continue with your sheer idiocy.

I have said many times my name is Curt. DUHH, that takes a HUGE guess. It was a nick name from a neighbor woman years ago.

I mean the constant myriad of new names, all from the same piss ant town, usually within minutes. That is the fake names I mean. God, you guys are DENSE, or deliberately "misunderstand" things.
