    Of course it is political. It is the heart of political correctness which is inherently political. It might be a good thing to some degree but in this context it is certainly political.

    Actually it can. A private universities that receives no federal dollars has more or less free reign on activities outside of those described by the COTUS.

    so my question is when does the 1st amendment rights of the school end and the 1st amendment rights of the students begins?
    This isn't a first amendment issue. No one said that the participants in the club cannot say or write their beliefs. They simply cannot have a school backed club. And remember that free speech does not bar a private universities receiving no federal dollars from kicking people out for saying certain things.
    You have the right to say whatever, but we don't have a duty to keep you enrolled after you say it.
