    No, thats not what that means. It means the university is not constitutionally required to fund those groups. And no, not every group of any sort is a protected class.

    Sooo... you're wrong.

    Also noteworthy is that the university still can fund those groups if it elects to do so. The ruling only seems to indicate that denying funding is not a violation of the first amendment.

    You're blowing the scope of this ruling way out of proportion.

    To be honest, I try to tolerate everyone. Our company hired a gay technician not too long ago. Why did we hire him? Because he has more than 10 years experience, and was the best man for the job, out of all the applications we received. In the long run, discrimination only hurts those who practice it.

    Yea, because when I think of important Supreme Court precedent regarding universities, the first thing that comes to mind is that the Court has been opposed to discrimination in all its forms.

    If they dont like it, then maybe they shouldnt take STATE funding. Become private and then you can do what you want.

    No, it's saying that University doesn't need to be forced to fund a group that practices overt discrimination.

    The groups still have a right to discriminate if they so choose. They simply won't receive University funding if they choose to do so.

    No...actually I didn't. I knew exactly what you were implying....and I think my response was appropriate. If you understand the Constitution and equal protection analysis, you know that not every factor is treated the exact same under EP analysis....and while Universities have non-discrimination policies, having a number of criteria for admissions, apart from an SAT score does not violate those policies.
