How Much Autonomy Should College Groups Have?

Here's one way for schools to get out of this mess--stop funding student groups! Then the schools don't even have to try to make 1st Amendment, or silly PC, arguments on behalf of students.
Should campus religious groups be allowed to require their leaders to actually — you know — hold the beliefs of the faith-based organizations they seek to lead? Carol Swain, author of the new book Be the People: A Call to Reclaim America’s Faith and Promise and professor of law and political science at Vanderbilt, has published an op-ed criticizing the university for attacking religious freedom in the name of political correctness.
Letting groups be self-funding would have the added advantage of reducing the cost of higher education.
