More Colleges Declare They Will Not Recognize Some Christian Groups
Catholic Culture ^ | 6/12/14

Posted on 06/13/2014 6:04:51 AM PDT by marshmallow

Citing concerns about discrimination, more colleges are declaring that they will no longer recognize Christian groups, especially evangelical groups, as official student organizations.

The trend is “driven by the universities’ desire to rid their campuses of bias, particularly against gays and lesbians,” according to The New York Times. In addition, the student organizations’ requirement that leaders be Christian has led to accusations of discrimination against non-Christians.

So, perversion groups that oppose Christianity are OK.

Christian groups that oppose perversion, not OK.

Christians had better unite to take their country back from these militant perverts. It wouldn’t surprise me if Islamic groups are behind this, threatening to withhold funding from colleges which allow Christian groups.

Human beings have an innate need for a religious belief system. Very few people percentage wise are comfortable with Atheism and Agnosticism. By killing off the major religion of the west, Christianity, the Muslims KNOW they are creating a fertile seed-bed for Islam.

Further, the mainstream Christian religions, primarily Anglicism/Episcopalianism, Methodism and Presbyterianism, have waffled on the Biblical prohibitions on homosexuality. These radical groups have been encouraged by their defections and hope they pry other Christian groups from their core principles, as the entire moral edifice of Christianity will then collapse.

And by doing so opens the university up to violation of civil rights violations lawsuits. Hope they have a large endowment.

Are the university dweebs going to pronounce a “Fatwa” against Muslim organizations, too? They are more vehemently against the sodomite lifestyle.

Somehow I think they won’t...

No one should donate to alumni fund drives. This is typical of what the money enables.

To accommodate the 3% deviants they must oppress the 90% Christians.

If they can’t exclude homosexual groups, then they shouldn’t be able to exclude Christian groups. etc.

I wonder if this will be Supreme Court bound?

I suspect this attitude will all end when entitlements end, and the country has nothing to offer from the WH. It will just be too late to keep the doors open and pay the radical professors.

Given the anti-God attitude , it is way past the time that Christian groups start to refuse to recognize some of these secular institutions.

Only college "educated" libtards could believe that banishing Christian groups is not in itself biased.

I do not know why any Christian would want to go to a liberal arts college in the first place.

We can preach against prostitution but going to a whore house and paying the tuition is a bad way to do it.

Yes. And sue them as individuals, do not just sue the university. And carry placards on campus calling them intolerant bigots.

And would the LGBT groups allow those who don’t believe in their lifestyle to join their groups? Wonder if anyone has made this argument to these so-called educators?

Seems the bastions of tolerance aren't that tolerant.

These are the same college that rip-off our kids by giving them an inferior education at inflated prices. Most criminal groups aren't big on Christianity...seems colleges are no exception.

But bias against Christians is A-OK.

Christian groups should stop being general and start being denominational. At that point colleges will have to deny equal access to real religions even though they receive public funds and they will be discriminating against real religions purely on the basis of their religion.

Colleges need to de-fund frivolous groups. In the name of controlling college costs and reducing college debt, they should cut off all support for clubs and groups on campus. It makes economic sense, and it will eliminate the discrimination against Christians - a double win.

Let me say this about that.

We might be a whole lot closer than we were twenty years ago.

...and it might just hinge on the 2016 election results as to how much closer we will be in a year and five and a half months.

Am I itchin, not when I know the devastation and history should not be repeated when we know the history.

...hardly armed to the teeth as the US military is, which will be sent into swirling, SWAT team action at the first sign of any organized pushback from mere citizenry...think of Janet Reno, and multiply her actions by ten, and that’s what will happen if you decide to exercise your rights by discharging a firearm at a gvernmental entity...

...and anyhow, being armed to the teeth hardly jives with the current Pope, what with his humbler and more socially conscious than thou posture...
