I’d venture a guess that this is about funding or official recognition as a student organization, not simply allowing students to gather on their own. And I’d bet that an organization called, Catholics for Women’s
Ordination that only allowed Catholic men or women or an organization called Liberal Women Chess Players that only admitted liberal women would also be denied the same official recognition or funding.
I’ll bet that the bar for this recognition or funding is that anyone who is a student or pays a student activity fee must be allowed to join. Seems fair as long as it is evenly applied.
We have (thankfully) left our Catholic ghettos some time ago.
Though I didn’t know him during our time at Alma Mater – RIP my classmate, Bob Gregory.
As always, thanks for your wonderful efforts as CIC and Jottings publisher!!

[JR: Mike, you're much more understanding than I. Maybe I'm just an anti- but I wager that "Catholics for Women's Ordination" would be acceptable under the banner of "inclusion", "political correctness", or "women are immune to criticism". Or, "we just like their cause". Unfortunately "catholic" as a brand is very confused. Something I blame on the Hierarchy and the Laity. We should be asking "How can you call yourself Catholic and … …". Not that I'm any great saint, but I least I don't pretend to be forming young souls. Argh!]
p.s., thanks for the praise, but I’m just a xerox machine. LAFF! Most of the time.
