A California university deactivated a school Christian group, claiming it’s discriminatory because its charter requires that its officers be Christian.
California State University’s executive order requiring non-discrimination butted heads with Cal State Stanislaus chapter of Chi Alpha, a Christian student organization — and the organization came out the loser.
“What they cannot be is faith-based where someone has to have a profession of faith to be that leader,” Associate Vice President of Cal State Tim Lynch said, according to Fox News. “Every club is allowed to establish its own standards for how leaders are selected as long as it’s non-discriminatory.”
The group answered the university’s “rules are rules” statement with a common sense statement of its own.
“How can we function as a Christian group without Christian leaders in our group?” the statement asked. “How can someone lead us if they don’t follow our mission?”
Clayton Morris noted on “Fox & Friends Weekend” that the university already grants “gender exemptions” for fraternities and sororities. Why not a “faith exemption” for a faith-based organization?
“Aren’t standards by definition discriminatory because they discriminate against people who don’t meet them?” Tucker Carlson asked.
Wondered one critic on Twitter:
@campusreform @peterjhasson So, if there is a Muslim group on campus is a Christian allowed to lead that? This is stupid!

Somehow, that’s not likely to come up.
