What’s the Problem with a Christian Dorm?

A new Christian dormitory at Alabama’s Troy University has proven highly popular with students but provoked a threatened law suit from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

Initiated by a Catholic organization on campus, and built entirely with private funds, the new dorm nonetheless angers militant separationists because it’s an official residence hall at a public university. The critics insist that Christians who choose to live together in the same campus housing, complete with regular bible study in the lobby, deserve less chance to select their own affinity group than gays, African-Americans, transgendered youth, Latinos, militant feminists or even honor students who have organized their own designated dorms on campuses across the country.

Yes, the First Amendment means Christians can’t be singled out for special treatment – but that means no especially harsh treatment just as much as it means no unique benefits.
