More than 400 student groups are officially recognized by Johns Hopkins University. They include Amnesty International, College Democrats and [College] Republicans, Diverse Sexuality and Gender Alliance, Hopkins Feminists, the Muslim Association and even a Quidditch team from Harry Potter fame.
Two dozen are advocacy organizations.
But there is no place on campus for Voice for Life, a Christian group with a pro-life message. The Student Government Association denied the pro-life club official recognition with at least one SGA member likening the pro-lifers to white supremacists. [See SGA emails here.]
The group is prohibited from meeting in campus facilities.
This underscores that contrary to popular thought, hundreds of colleges have become deeply intolerant – particularly of social conservative issues.
Approval that often is given only to politically correct groups.
Perhaps Hopkins should behave better and respect the speech it deems to be politically incorrect.04/09/13 Campus Intolerance
