NYD I thought you might be interested in an email I received from the friend I mentioned who is in leadership with one of the 11 "Solidarity" groups. It gets at some of the questions you've been asking me. Here's a portion of their response sans personal stuff:
“We (none of the 11 groups) haven't received word from the University as to an official denial as of yet. Although...a couple smaller Christian groups have been denied…
…the 11 groups didn't really change their constitutions significantly, from what I understand. It's just that many of us looked at them for the first time in several years. In the past the whole "submit your constitution to the University for approval" had just been a formality, a hoop to jump through. So many of us just hadn't paid much attention, to be honest. So this year, some of us re-wrote a few items to make the constitutions reflect what we actually do. Does that make sense?
So, in practice, no one changed what they did - we just made the constitution's language reflect what we actually do (i.e. choose leaders based on faith-based criteria).”
