For John, BLUF: Tufts, down the street, has banned a Christian group for wanting to be Christian. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the InstaPundit, through a couple of sites we come to The Tufts Daily: The independent student newspaper of Tufts University.♠ Apparently the Student Christian Group has to go for being too exclusive in its leadership—requiring that they be Christians.
Tufts Christian Fellowship (TCF) has lost its official recognition as a Tufts Community Union (TCU) student group over alleged discriminatory clauses in the group’s constitutional requirements for its leaders.I don't get it. Why don't the (I presume Evangelical Protestant) Christians just band together and take over the French Club?
TCF leadership says the group plans to appeal the decision.
The group’s Vision and Planning Team (VPT) failed to make revisions to their governing document that would bring it in line with the TCU Constitution’s non-discriminatory clause, Judiciary Chair Adam Sax, a senior, said.

♠ How independent can it be if the Student Judicary can yank theIr right to call themselves a Tufts student newspaper?
