How religious is too religious?
That's the dicey question at the core of a recent court ruling that now prohibits Davidson College from using police powers. The thinking: Davidson is a Presbyterian institution and as such cannot have a police force because it runs afoul of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
To all this, a writer with the Pope Center for Higher Education Policy says: Enough!
Writing on the group's website, Duke Cheston argues that the ruling opens a door that best remain shut - defining levels of religiosity.
And, Cheston suggests, in farming out security to other local agencies, religious colleges and universities may be getting a lesser product.
