The title may seem a bit confusing, and it’s about to get worse. For, you see, Vanderbilt has a non-discrimination policy that discriminates against certain groups, particularly of the religious persuasion. For more, here is an excerpt from The Blaze…
The ruckus over Vanderbilt University’s non-discrimination policy and regulations that require campus Christian groups (among others) to allow non-believers to serve in leadership roles continues. This week, Vanderbilt Catholic, one of the largest faith clubs at the school, has announced that it will not comply with the newly-enforced rules.
The Catholic group’s decision will mean that, as of the end of the year, it will no longer be an official university group. Instead, it will serve as an off-campus ministry. The Rev. John Sims Baker, a chaplain at Vanderbilt Catholic, said on Tuesday that the group has been forced to make the rash decision to leave campus. It is the first Vanderbilt group to make such an announcement.
Of course, it would be senseless to stay. The effort is very similar to Sandra Fluke’s choice to attend Georgetown-to change the religious institution’s policy on contraception. As for Vanderbilt, those “hateful” Christian groups can be infiltrated by people not of that faith, and be rendered irrelevant. Consequently, these groups, starting with the Catholics will leave, rather than be infiltrated and destroyed from within. In the end, I would predict that this is the desired result, as their influence on campus will be greatly diminished.
If I were Satan, I’d consider it a near perfect plan.
