Liberty University Revokes Recognition of Democratic Club

Liberty University has revoked recognition of the campus Democratic Party club because its parent organization stands against the conservative Christian school's moral principles. The club, which has about 30 members, will no longer be able to use Liberty's name, hold on-campus meetings, or be eligible for student activities money.  Liberty's campus Republican party club is unaffected by the ruling.

Well, isn't that just a little bit ironic.

Liberty sure doesn't believe in political liberties. Asshats.

But much the same is done by liberal universities by the process of labeling as "racist," "sexist," or "reactionary" those positions that the liberal majority does not like. Students at my law school regularly report anxiety about expressing conservative positions, and there are few if any conservative faculty hired. One doesn't notice this most of the time, of course, but that's the point: that is why it is so effective

So, which student clubs have lost their campus recognition by the action of their university?
