What if the shoe were on the other foot?

From The Christian Post:

Should religious student organizations, like all other student organizations, be able to “come together around shared commitments?”

The Christian Legal Society (CLS)-- the national membership organization of Christian attorneys, judges, law professors and law students -- is battling against the Arizona State University (ASU) with the resounding answer, “yes.”...

According to the recent CLS press release, the CLS chapter had made an allegation last September that “ASU is violating the First Amendment rights of expressive association, free speech and free exercise of religion of the CLS chapter and other campus religious groups by failing to exempt them from the “nondiscrimination” provision in the Student Code of Conduct,” which states that all campus religious groups are to accept non-Christian members and officers.

I wonder what would happen if a whole bunch, I mean a whooole bunch, of Christians demanded membership in the ASU's Gay and Lesbian Legal Alliance, voted out the leadership, replaced them with their own people, then rewrote the goals of the organization? I bet the GALLA would start signing a different tune.
