    Really? That university shouldn't have any groups since they apparently believe that everyone has to be the same to be equal. Honestly what's the point of finding solidarity with like minded people in a group if your group isn't allowed to be run by like minded people? It's just stupid.

    Yes, the Bears team is made up of multiple individuals. Yes, there are multiple types of pastas like Rigatoni or Capellini. Yes there are multiple seconds, minutes, and hours that make up the day of "December 25th". And yes, there are a multitude of various denominations of Christianity.

    However, when speaking about them on a more macro scale, where one is talking about the over all grouping rather than it's individual portions, it's correct to refer to the things as a singular entity.

    ONE christian club had their campus approval removed for violating rules regarding clubs. Sixteen or more Christian clubs still have their campus approval because they didn't violate the rules regarding clubs.

    This wasn't targetting "Christians", this wasn't singling out "Christians", at best it was singling out a group that refused to follow the rules.
    Meh, he realizes all that by virtue of his choice of indefinite article for a group.

    Anyone can do anything they want, some go nutty and others choose respect because they don't want to get drastic..

    I doubt that will mean anything to anyone but I have to bounce...

    Unless what they want to do is join a Christian club in order to learn about Christianity even though they are not themselves Christian, of course.

    Nobody said it wasn't allowed.

    My post is in reference to the OP article where a university sponsored club is not allowed to be university sponsored without becoming non-specific in their leadership in order for everything to be fair and equal.

    I'm sure you knew that though...

    Assuming public school funds are used to subsidize the clubs, then enforcing anti-discrimination rules is legally required and appropriate.

    I doubt any non-Christians would want to join. If a few did, I don't see any likelihood of harm from their attendance at events. Non-discrimination is the price you pay for obtaining a government funded subsidy.
