    There have been many court cases which say college student organizations cannot discriminate. They are supposed to allow anyone to join, or they cannot be allowed to use college facilities.

    At Vanderbilt University they have carried this non-discrimination policy even further. Not only are student organizations required to accept all comers, those organizations must also allow anyone to hold leadership positions.

    For instance, a Catholic student organization must allow gays to hold positions of leadership.

    Needless to say, this has religious organizations' bowels in an uproar.

    However, I think this policy is brilliant.

    Here is my idea. There are more whites in America than blacks. White people should flood the African-American student organizations and take over their positions of leadership. And then they should all endorse someone like, ohhhhh, Newt Gingrich for President.

    "350 African-American college organizations support Newt for President!"



    "264 LGBT college organizations support Rick Santorum for President! They also support a constitutional amendment to limit marriage to one man and one woman."


    This would be awesome.

    What the fuck does this have to do with Vanderbilt? Which by the way is a PRIVATE college and thus the SCOTUS ruling doesn't apply.

    Public Universities, those funded on the taxpayer dime, shouldn't be allowed to operate under discriminatory policies. Associations which make such discriminatory policies part of there normal operations, shouldn't receive taxpayer funding. A group wants to form? No problem, don't expect funding and figure out your own meeting facilities.

    Now, with that said, just because a school requires voluntary organizations who wish to receive funding to (a) provide open membership, and (b) that any member can rise to a leadership position - DOES NOT require that anyone specific person become a leader, only that can become leaders if elected. These types of organizations elect their leaders. If the "Order of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" doesn't want a leader who is a "_____________" (insert religion here), then they won't elect them.


    *****************************


    As Unknown_Soldier said, Vanderbilt University is a private school. IFAIK they are not under any court ruling requiring their change in policy.

    If a white majority votes in white leaders of an African-American student organization, you can see where this could lead.

    All kinds of fun and interesting outcomes.


    There is a black guy who is a member of the Asian-American society at Vanderbilt. He doesn't have a drop of Asian blood in him.

    So this is not too far-fetched a scenario.

    You cannot live a gay life and be a Catholic.

    If you are a guy who smokes poles, you can't eat the Eucharist on Sunday.

    If he is gay, he leads a gay life. Catholics oppose homosexual sex, not homosexuality

    But Catholics also oppose unmarried sex and adultery. This is against the ten commandments. So the Catholic group at Vanderbilt should also oppose anyone who is unmarried and not a virgin whether they are heterosexual or homosexual
