Yale Law School will help students in a loan-forgiveness program (COAP) UNLESS those students go to work for faith based organizations (which Yale identifies as discriminatory because there’s no full acceptance of LGBTQ+ in every regard). The school is effectively blacklisting Christian organizations by moving to block student funding for fellowships and summer programs deemed “discriminatory.”
Tensions rose two months ago (Feb, 2019), when members of the Yale Federalist Society invited a lawyer from the Christian legal organization Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) to speak on campus, a move that enraged Yale’s LGBT group “Outlaws,” who characterized ADF as a “hate group.” (As we know, any disapproval of all things LGBTQ+ in America is now labelled a “hate crime” simply on the basis of lack of full acceptance and endorsement.)
Such discrimination on the basis of religion is against federal law, and yet Yale pursues this policy. If they succeed with it, we can assume other schools will pursue a similar policy. Yale is now reconsidering the policy and how the school will enforce it. Stay tuned.
