Nobody, anywhere, is exempt from moral responsibilties.  I agree with you there.

man or woman, power is power, and she has power. not only does she have power, the power she wields is useful to many members at Augusta.

IMO it is not necessarily "immoral" for members of a private club to be selective about who can join their club, on a variety of grounds including gender.  On the contrary, it happens all the time in this country and it is part of a healthy and truly "diverse" society in which people can pursue their own individual interests in private matters.  That is a concept that many on the other side of the issue never seem to get, and it is a chronic and consistent failure in the thinking on the left, in my personal opinion.

 

Your arguments just reek of the typical defense of "affirmative action" policies in this country.  Nonsense, in both the public and the private sectors.

it is a private club , i would love to play there  will it happen most likely not , that does not mean that i begrudge the members for that- it is their club , it is not a moral issue , they should be able

to admit who ever they want man -woman  in betweens who ever, this idea of being politicly correct all the time has gone way over board - where's my trophy for participation

The CEO of IBM has traditionally been invited. One of their partners. It was a point of discussion whether she would be. I'm not sure she even plays golf though…

True, I would love to own a new Mercedes benz, 2 door, convertible.....should I complain to MB that they are being unfair?

 

What a joke people can be, everyone feels they are owed something....
