← At religious campuses, atheist groups operate underground

Functional Atheist's Avatar Jump to comment 10 by Functional Atheist

Many colleges and universities have only a loose, or historical, association with a particular denomination. So long as the school does not require some sort of explicit endorsement of a specific religious tradition, it ought to allow these groups on the same principle that they allow other groups that they do not specifically endorse.

In other words, if a Christian college or university permits a Jewish student alliance, or a similar Muslim group, there is no logical reason for them to disallow a Freethinker's group.

But then, having an expectation of logic when dealing with these college and university administrators is rather naive.
