David French comments on CLS v. Kane at Phi Beta Cons

David French, ADF Senior Legal Counsel and Director of ADF’s Center For Academic Freedom, comments on Christian Legal Society v. Kane at Phi Beta Cons on National Review Online:

From a common-sense standpoint, this is absurd. Imagine telling a Baptist church that its search for a new pastor had to include equal consideration of Buddhist or Hindu candidates. Imagine telling a synagogue that they were engaged in unlawful "discrimination" if they categorically refused to permit imams from
functioning as rabbis. How can student guarantee that they can maintain their distinctive voice if each group essentially has to be open to all students, regardless of those students' beliefs or intentions?
