Yesterday was the anniversary of Rosenberger v. UVA (1995). In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that it is unconstitutional for a public university to fund secular student organizations while denying funds to religious student organizations.

Yes, that would be favoring a religion (or lack of).

I could agree with that. UVA is always in trouble, though. Just this term, Ken Cucinelli was suing them for something about religion (because he's a religious fuck-nut). That was a big debacle, costing the university hundreds of thousands of $...

...because he didn't agree with what they were doing. There were calls for the governor to set aside money in the budget for that. People were pissed.

I am tolerant, but you don't live in Virginia. He's fucking nuts for a politician and has no place as governor.

I agree. All student organizations, religious or nonreligious, should be treated equally by the university. All students pay activities fees, and student groups should have access to those funds on equal terms.

I wouldn't support it even if secular organisations weren't being funded and religious were.

I mean I wouldn't support not funding a religious organisation and not a secular one either. I don't support not funding one exclusively over the other.
