From The National Post:
The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal that sets anti-discrimination principles against religious freedom.
The case is part of a continuing battle by a student group, the Christian Legal Society (CLS), to defend its rights of religious liberty and freedom of association.
However, the University of California's Hastings College of the Law refuses to recognize the CLS because of what it calls the group's discriminatory membership requirements.
The CLS says all students are welcome to participate in its activities, but leadership and voting members must sign a Statement of Faith affirming they adhere to traditional Christian beliefs.
This will no doubt have implications for evangelical college groups operating on campus. Already there have been prominent conflicts between evangelical groups at a major Catholic University (here and here).
But it might be a good thing. Seems the Christian faith flourishes most when it does not have the sanction of governmental bodies.
So if you were on the bench of the U.S. Supreme Court, which principle do you think should prevail?
