20. I think the key test should be, does the school accept taxpayer money
from vouchers or "faith-based initiative" funding.

My personal opinion is that religious institutions should be allowed to discriminate against anyone they want to, provided they don't receive one damn dime of taxpayer money.

In return, I would ask that they keep out of secular affairs such as "defining marriage."

I know that's too much to ask though.

So, I say let that school take its lumps.
