    Re: University of Michigan Kicks Christian Club off Campus

    I have a friend that goes to that university. I wonder if he's heard about it.

    You know, on the one hand, I really resent the implication that being forced to follow the same rules as secular clubs is somehow "hostile" to Christianity... but on the other hand, how perfectly ****ing daft is it to say that a Christian campus club cannot require that it's leaders-- not even its general membership, its leaders to be Christian? That's like telling the German club that it can't require that its members speak German-- or, at least, be interested in speaking German.
    I don't understand, is there a blood test or something to prove you're Christian? Midi-Chlorians?

    Or did some wisenheimer join the club and start making noise when they told him to take off the Yamaka?

    Seriously, I think this is wrong in so many ways.

    On the other hand, Jesus would say a little persecution builds character.

    A Christian group can't require that it's leader(s) be Christian?

    Too bad you can't teach common sense.

    That's how Universities display their support for diversity and tolerance.

    They're 'all inclusive' sacks of mush.

    It's ridiculous. If I started a woman's group I wouldn't let a man be the leader of it. I wonder if that would be allowed or if my group would get banned too?

    If you read the actual article being discussed, you'd know that already.

    A Christian group can require it's leaders to be anything they want. They just can't be affiliated with and supported by the University if their structures are in conflict with the Universities rules. Again, University organisations are meant to bring students together, not divide them.

    No what is daft is the fact that the idiots cant tell the difference between a club and a church.

    These dumbass hateful progressive elitist morons portray a christian club as some sort of a church when it isn't. It's nothing more than a club no different from any other club. The best part is that clubs are supposed to be private and protected via the Bill of Rights.

    The best part of this crap is these "progressive intellectuals" do nothing but talk about discrimination and racism - yeah who is doing the discrimination? oh yeah those with the gigantic pie holes.. These bastards actually think they can pick and choose who civil liberties apply to. Christian no, Muslim yes, white no, black yes, straight no, gay yes.. Like only minorities can have clubs.

    These clowns need to be bitch-slapped back to reality because debate won't change their snooty ignorant perspective. They're too stupid to understand and the only thing that will changer their mind is pain. They're ****ing Nazi's.

    This is a club, no endorsement needed.

    You may as well say a bunch of guys cant get together and play video games and call it a "club." Individuals have every right in the United States to get together and talk about whatever they want and call it a club.

    This is nothing more than an example of the alleged "tolerant" showing their intolerance.... The simple fact they don't see this shows how ****ing stupid they actually are - that or they're in epic denial about their hypocrisy. I would certainly have more respect if they came out and stated their blatant bias, that's for sure.

    Too bad the university can't practice its own policy, and discriminates against an Asian Christian club.....the racist Christian-phobic hypocrites. I think that they should write their representatives and find out how much tax money the university is getting, and work on killing that. They should contact the ACLU.
