    The ruling also raised the GNC’s stature above the other after-school programs because it now cannot be prevented, whereas art, gender or special interest-based programs can. This club has become untouchable.
    My understanding of the court ruling was that GNC had to be given equal footing with other on-campus clubs—so that if a school permitted school property to be used after school by art, gender, or special-interest-based clubs, it also had to permit its use by religiously-based clubs.

    The ruling, to my understanding, was that schools weren't allowed to say "the chess club, the debate club, the Cub Scout troop, and the Interact club can use school property after school, but not the religious club."

    Can you provide a citation suggesting that religiously-based clubs are, by law, being privileged above other non-religiously-based clubs?
