Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia: Religious Institutions Have A RIGHT To Discriminate

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia appeared Saturday at the Catholic Duquesne University School of Law where he remarked that anti-gay discrimination at law schools is just one example of  of “diversity of moral judgment.”

“Our educational establishment these days, while so tolerant of and even insistent upon diversity in all other aspects of life seems bent on eliminating diversity of moral judgment — particularly moral judgment based on religious views.  I hope this place will not yield — as some Catholic institutions have — to this politically correct insistence upon suppression of moral judgment, to this distorted view of what diversity in America means.”

In other words Scalia is saying that plainly and for all to hear that he believes that religious institutions have the right to discriminate on thier percieved moral ground and be excused from any judgements or ramifications.

“Diversity of moral judgement?”  Thats a pretty warped version of “diversity”
