Vanderbilt’s All-Comer’s Policy?
They then go to great lengths to assure everyone that gender discrimination is OK. Everything is not.
Vandy Catholic felt assuring Vandy that they would allow anyone into their organization was hypocritical and unethical. They don’t intend to. They intend to be an organization where people, regardless of their ethnicity, gender, race, or country of origin could worship Jesus Christ. Since worshiping a disciple is a choice, I have no problem with that.
There are other organizations that discriminate as well. In order to be a member of a National Pan-Hellenic Council club you have to be African-American. That is discriminating purely on the basis of race. Vandy has no problem with that. When those organizations sign that non-discrimination clause, they are obviously in violation. I’m waiting for Vandy to call them out on it.
Hell they even have a “Black Student Alliance“. In order to be a part of that, you have to be an organization made up of black students. They got bunches. I’m really anxious to see if the Black Law Students’ Association signs the pledge not to discriminate against pasty white guys joining.
The problem I have with all this is you have all these eggheads, all over the country, that claim they are not the least bit racist, and then come up with these public displays of how non-racist they are, but only look at one color.
Vandy has no intent to be non-discriminatory in any way. Blacks are encouraged to discriminate as they see fit. Genders are encouraged to discriminate as they see fit. Sexual orientation is allowed to discriminate as they see fit. Just toss the stupid policy. Hate crimes are illegal. Vandy’s silly policy doesn’t change that.
My prevailing point is rather than pretending we’re a grey society where only preferred cultures are allowed to be celebrated, let’s celebrate all cultures equally. When that happens, you’ll have the closest thing to equality this planet’s ever known. We’re not only a long way from that point, we seem to be heading in the wrong direction.
