MSOE changes position, to allow Religious Freedom
In a victory for religious liberty and freedom of association, the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) has granted full recognition to the ReJOYce in Jesus Campus Fellowship (RJCF) student group.
RJCF ran into trouble in Fall 2004 when ... MSOE’s Student Government Association (SGA) sent RJCF a letter stating that it would not recognize the group because it believed RJCF’s “Standards of Personal Conduct” discriminated on the basis of “sexual preference.” ... [I]ts “Standards of Personal Conduct”... require that voting members not commit acts “expressly forbidden in Scripture,” including “homosexual behavior” among others.
I'm glad that the University reversed its position, recognizing that freedom of association should apply to everyone, not just to the left-out minority few.
This politically correct hullabaloo and "culture of inclusion" has gotten so far out of control it's frightening. There always seem to be thousands of people ready to jump up and scream "discrimination!" whenever a group or individual exercises their right to associate with whomever they choose.
Hey, if you're not a Catholic, you shouldn't have the right to join the Knights of Columbus or any other organization that exists to bring people of similar beliefs together. What's so hard about that for people to understand? It's like these liberals never got picked for the kickball team in grade school so now they're spending their time trying to legislate their way to popularity.

|Yeah. They aren't out to get anyone. I think the line should be drawn when they start having KKK groups though. |

That's true, except the grade school kids tried to get better at kickball in order to be picked earlier.
