Re: Religious Restrictions on Training

Hi folks,

Request #4:

I just wanted to step in and ask that the subject matter in this thread be focused on the matter of aikido students at a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) aikido dojo who have a religious prohibition against touching women.

If you feel the need to move this subject to a broader context outside of aikido, please take it to the Open Discussions forum.

Thanks,

-- Jun
Well, you can consider the matter closed then. It seems fairly straight forward that many tax-exempt 501(c)(3) orgs discriminate based on sex and sexual preference everyday, why would religious preference be any different? To me, the question shouldn't be can they, because it seems obvious they can. The question to me is should they? So I will bow out.
