    Well I dont recall many (or any for that matter) reports from African American communities complaining about black christians being discriminated against for being christian. Even from Jesse Jackson, not one who is afraid about pulling the discrimination card

    That does not mean anything. The news does not find it newsworthy. Now let us say something about race. Then it winds up on every channel.

    Do you have any reports that suggest black christians feel discriminated against because they are christian?

    How about the press release from the party that filed the lawsuit? Will that work for you? The press release is titled "NY high school cancels Christian club, lets 60 others remain".

    Here are some facts from the lawsuit:

    There are over 60 active clubs on campus

    In 2005 when they tried to start the Christian club, they were denied repeatedly and only when they hired a lawyer did the school finally give in.

    Then the school began to cancel their meetings citing "conflicts" in the schedule. This went on for months. Clearly an attempt to attack the organizational power of the club.

    When they disbanded the club they gave no reason and it wasn't until they were pressed they claimed "fiscal management" and "lack of participation" despite the fact they had 55 members and 90 students who signed a petition that the club should be reinstated.

    The students even offered to pay for ALL expenses and still the school board denied the reinstatement of the club and instead said they could meet at another high school.

    They even proposed to reduce their meetings to bi weekly to cut down on the "cost" the school was complaining about and still were denied.

    These are very reasonable negotiation points this club tried in good faith to make and the school still denied them.

    Then the school claimed they would deny it due to "enrollment standards" but then refused to explain what those standards were even to repeated public requests.

    This is classic anti-Christian behavior from an obviously discriminatory school board hell bent on denying these kids their right to form a club.
    It's time for the superintendant and his nazi principal buddy to lose their jobs and pensions.

    Anyone else notice Obama just about stopped going to Christian Church all together after the election? I guess pretending to be a Christian isn't needed any more.

    Can't wait to see if the All Communist Lovers United or (ACLU) takes up the fight for the School.

    So none of these Christians is Black. It is ok in your eyes to be racist?

    Threads like this almost always end up being a lot of bluster, and then it turns out to be about nothing. Right now no one here has enough facts to judge. If the club was disbanded merely for being a christain club(as long as other religions have the same rights), then it was probable the school is wrong. if the club was disbanded for other reasons, then the school did nothing wrong. Running ahead of the facts and getting all bent out of shape does no one any good.

    it is fun watching certain conservatives who love to play the victim continue to do so though, I will admit.

    I agree. If all religious clubs were disbanded then this really is a non issue. If there are still other religious clubs active at the school then this Christian club has a leg to stand on.
