U.S. Supreme Court Says Religious Groups Can’t Discriminate AND Get Federal Funds

June 29, 2010

So, this case sounds a lot like the LSAT test questions:  if house A is blue and house B is yellow, and yellow is to the right of blue, and a house on the other side is green…  So, if a religious group on campus wants to deny homosexual members, AND it is supported by federal funds, can the group both deny membership based on sexual orientation and get federal funds?  Answer:  no.

Okay, explain that:  the groups can discriminate, if they are private, but they can’t get federal funds to support their student group while they do so.
