Expect a fundie eruption in 3…2…1. The U.S. Supreme Court said no to the hand of the fundies, refusing to accept a case challenging a lower court ruling on the anti-discrimination policy at organizations recognized by California state universities.
The groups relied on a “religious freedom” argument to justify discriminating against LGBT students — restricting admittance to Christian members only by a fraternity and sorority at San Diego State University. But that argument fell flat.
The justices on Monday are leaving in place a federal appeals court ruling that found that the [non-discrimination] policy doesn’t violate the Constitution. The policy says officially recognized campus groups can’t discriminate based on religion or sexual orientation.
It’s not a Supreme Court decision on the merits; it allows an appellate court decision to stand without taking the case.
The lesson – don’t expect to receive public funds and discriminate. But these bible beaters will keep on trying.
