My recollection of Bishop is at play here, rather than a recent read, but
didn't the professor tell his students, in the nature of a disclaimer, that
his recreational philosophy was a reflection of his personal philosophy, which
in turn was a reflection of his personal religious beliefs. The "optional
classes" were the prof's offer to those students who desired further insight
into the underlayment of their instructor's course-related philosophy, while
trying to avoid, quite scrupulously, any class-time E.C. problem.
My recollection (as Hillel director at the time) is that Bishop included
matterial on his exams from these "optional" class, and was not overly
impressed by the Jewish students who elected to skip the church service for
their own religious reasons. There was also an unlitigated issue about
scheduling exams on the High Holy Days, and not giving a make-up for the
Jewish students. I would like to give my Trial-Ad class an exam on Christmas,
but the semester ends too early.
