The Christian Legal Society and "discrimation": Response to Susan
In response to Susan's post, I'm inclined to think that, yes, the University of Montana should be completely indifferent to the possibility that the Christian Legal Society's understanding of what it means to be "Christian" does not track perfectly -- in fact, I am quite sure that it does not track perfectly -- other Christians' understanding of what it means to be "Christian."
If the "Environmentalist Law Society" were to adopt a resolution stating that "respect for the environment, given the pressures of increasing population, must include a commitment to abortion rights and public funding of abortions", I would hope that lots of environmentalists would quit that organization (and start another one). I would not think, though, that the University of Montana should take up the question whether the dissenting environmentalists' understandings were more "environmentalist" than those backing the rule, or that the University should. simply because the group's understanding of what it means to be "environmentalist" is not shared by all environmentalists, exclude the Environmentalist Law Society -- assuming it continued to meet the formal eligibility criteria -- from the array of funded student groups.
