    That's where the common sense comes in, creating a specific group isn't discriminating...

    If I wanted to join club soccer at my university should they be forced to let me play if the only sport I ever took up was golf?

    I'm sure you knew that though...
    Sixteen other Christian groups at that university have no problem accommodating the equality rules. This bunch are seeking martyrdom by refusing to comply.

    A lot of other groups gave in too, it doesn't make the university any less ridiculous.

    What did they give up, exactly?

    Gave in to federal law, yes.

    The federal government, or state government of Michigan, will not fund discrimination on the basis of religion. I'm really sorry that this bothers you so much. You are, of course, free to start a club without that subsidy and then you can make being a Christian a requirement for leadership.

    I know it's frustrating. The federal government, for some reason, refuses to fund my human sacrifice cult. Killing people in the name of Velariak the Destroyer is the core part of my religious beliefs, and they have the nerve to say that human sacrifice violates university rules.

    Does UM have classes in Black Studies? Chicano Studies? If so, are those subjects racially based?

    People of any race can join clubs based on either of those things. Put the race card back in the deck.

    A list of ethnic organizations at UM.

    Student Clubs | University of Michigan

    And evidently non Christians can joint the club in question. Try to answer in an intelligent manner.

    Why the **** would someone join a club that doesn't adhere to their beliefs?

    Those that join a club who don't agree with their ideals should be degraded by the group.

    The notion you actually believe a non-christian is entitled to joining a christian club - not to mention should have the opportunity to have a leadership role is absolutely ridiculous.

    Can I please have a leadership role in a lesbian, bisexual transgender or whatever it is (LBGT) club despite the fact I'm not gay? maybe a leadership role in the NAACP? How about the feminist movement? can I have a role in their club too?

    The idiocy of you people is astounding.
