Discrimination has no place where higher learning is the goal.

Many gays are Christians.

Why shouldn't they be allowed to participate in Christian groups?

Bigotry is bigotry. I don't believe that your Christ would condone it.

Of course, religious freedom is a constitutionally protected right and the right of any individual to join a group no matter the consistency of their belief system and actions to the groups standards is not. How the Supreme Court made such a poor decision is just another example of how much influence current trends have on such decisions. Basically, the court protected a constitutionally unprotected right over a constitutionally protected one. Amazing what a good lawyers argument can do. Under this ruling how can any group have a standard for participation, lets say the level of one grades and not be accused of discriminating against
those not attaining the standard. Of course, the court would find such discrimination all right, but because the standard is based on a religious standard it can not be used.
