Very touchy subject, especially since it is on a college campus. It would depend on the individual constitution of the college. Everyone has their rules in groups; however, this one might just take things a little too far. However, they have the right to bar individuals, but there is a limit.

So, at my college, it is pretty easy to start a club.  Now, in order to get funding and what not you have to go through the student government (SGA).  So anyway, this uber conservative christian group wanted to form up.  Only thing, in their constitution (every club is required to have one) they blatently discriminate agains homosexuals.  That is actually just part of their completely rediculious rules.  Here is a direct quote from their constitution:



Now, granted... great...they wanna follow the bible, but think hard about this... its college.  sex, drunkenness, profanity... bwhahahaha.

anyway...  

Now the part that really irks me and put the SGA in a predicament is the whole homosexual thing.  Now, I was talking to the pres. at lunch today and he made a good point.  There are only 2 sides to this argument and no inbetween.

One side says that it's wrong, the club is blatently discriminating and should not be approved.   On the other side, people are saying that this a religious organization and you can't infringe on their beliefs. 

Unfortunately the club did get approved due to legal issues and the possibility of the school losing a lot of money to these die-hard christians. 

Figured that I'd join in on making one of these controversial topics. 

Discuss.
