1st Amendment District Court Win Means Dems’ Club Can’t Be Forced To Have GOP Officers

Congressional staff will face the core issues in this case again and again, and not just on campuses

Okay, actually, the club involved is the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship chapter at the University of Iowa, which a federal judge ruled cannot be forced by campus officials to have non-Christian leaders.

But to grasp the significance of Judge Stephanie Rose’s September 27 decision, imagine that, to prevent discrimination and ensure diversity, the Democratic Socialist Club is required by government policy to make sure a certain number of its top leaders are actually libertarian Republicans.

Or the NARAL Pro-Choice Chapter of community activists must admit enough pro-lifers to the top echelons of its leadership structure to satisfy an official edict … or the liberal Center for American Progress is forced to install as many Heritage Foundation directors as required to achieve “balance” in its policy prescriptions?

The Rose decision is the second she has delivered in recent months upholding the First Amendment’s right of assembly against the University of Iowa administrators’ attempts to impose its discriminatory policy, according to the Christian Post.
