Battle Between Colleges and Campus Groups Heating Up

A few more college administrations have imposed some difficulties for campus Christian groups, mostly because (as it seems) that Christian groups uphold lifestyle requisites for their leadership positions that are "discriminatory." Bowdoin is now a name joining Vanderbilt, and California State's decision is seen as a proverbial tipping point. This battle has made it to three Patheos blogs and the New York Times.

We all need to stay away from vague cliches, define our terms (e.g. "diversity," "discrimination," and "exclusivity") and realize that if you support religious freedom (no matter who you are), you're going to support something you're against.
