RUSH: The next story is hideous. Yale Law School has decided to suspend stipends for students who work for Christian law firms. The LGBTQ organization at Yale Law is called the Outlaws, and the Outlaws are livid that Yale is giving stipends to students who are Christians who might take intern and other temporary work at Christian law firms. They think that’s discriminatory and bigoted, and they think Yale should have nothing to do with anything Christian.
“After the Yale Federalist Society invited an attorney from Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a prominent Christian legal group, to speak about the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, conservative students faced backlash. Outlaws, the law school’s LGBTQ group, demanded that Yale Law School ‘clarify’ its admissions policies for students who support ADF’s positions.” Christian positions, conservative positions.
“Additionally, Outlaws insisted that students who work for religious or conservative public interest organizations such as ADF during their summers should not receive financial support from the law school.” Only LGBTQ and leftist students should. And Yale has already caved to one of those demands by restricting financial support for conservative students. University, where you reach for ideas and the openness of scholarly interaction with ideas is supposed to be promoted. Exact opposite.
