http://www.modernist.club/member-info/ I spotted a news story about this the other day, and it piqued my interest. Is a private club founded to surround yourself with like minded people really that different than other private clubs that many consider(ed) deplorable because they discriminated on the basis of sex, race, or religion? I'm sure they would not black ball someone due to race, gender, or sexual preference, but is it OK to say that someone isn't smart enough, or successful enough, to join - even though he/she is well able to afford it? Just because he/she isn't "modern enough", whatever that means. Isn't this just a different form of discrimination? Edited to add, this is a strictly social club, unlike professional, union, etc clubs which limit members due to occupation.
