← At religious campuses, atheist groups operate underground

Hmm.. it's a thin line to walk for the school, allowing groups of other abrahamic religions, but not atheists. If it was just a public school singling out atheists it would be a clear-cut case. But Catholic School or not, allowing atheists a platform in their school would not only benefit closeted atheists. It would also open up internal dialogue, hopefully leading to better understanding by all parties concerned.

Am I being too optimistic/idealistic here?
