With this logic, anyone can do anything merely because they want to. I and my friends, simply by agreeing on a common set of wants, could form a group to run naked through the White House. No one is harmed, and we are only doing what we want to. Period. Fortunately, there is a higher standard to uphold when confronting the 14th Amendment to the Constitution to create a protected class of citizens. "Wanting to" is insufficient to overturn the law.

Everyone remember the motto of the 1960s and 1970s hippies: "if it feels good, do it." These are the folks in power now.

Whenever I write about the issue of First Amendment Freedom of Association, I defend the right of campus groups, not government administrators, to control their own belief structure and membership requirements. This often involves discussing real life cases with real life tension between religious groups and homosexual activists. This results in a slew of emails asking why a homosexual student would ever want to join a fundamentalist religious group. The short answer to the question is that homosexual activists don't really want to join these organizations. Some want to use them for political gain before shutting them down altogether.
