One more try. Your position is that a private school can discriminate as it sees fit, while I oppose that view.
If Harvard were to announce tomorrow that they will no longer admit religious students of any kind, I think the government should not provide funds for a school like that. Do you still think that is fine and the government should continue to provide funding, or does your rule only apply to religious views you like?
If the honor code and the religion are the most important to the practitioners, then the most intelligent thing for them to do to preserve that code and religion is to enforce the honor code.
If a legal position/outcome is more important to them than their religion, then they might look the other way re the honor code.
No, as you can read, I am saying that organizations who do not wish to treat people of all races, genders, and religious views equally should not receive government funding.
Hmm, so, following through, the new BYU motto could be "BYU: You know what you're getting yourself into, ladies."
In contrast [@awcntdb] thinks private schools can adopt any religious view the wish and still recieve government funding.
Hold on a minute, @awcntdb ...didn't you just argue that to BYU, the honor code might be more important for religious reasons than legal niceties? Either this is about religion, or it isn't. ....Personally, I don't see why it has to be about religion at all...
