CLS’s “Unrepentant Participation in or Advocacy of a Sexually Immoral Lifestyle” Discrimination Won’t Wash at Hastings

The Christian Legal Society of UC Hastings seeking to discriminate against homosexual members took their case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court via Christian Legal Society v. Martinez (2010). And in a 5-to-4 decision handed down today, they lost.

In requiring CLS — in common with all other student organizations — to choose between welcoming all students and forgoing the benefits of official recognition, we hold, Hastings did not transgress constitutional limitations. . . CLS, it bears emphasis, seeks not parity with other organizations, but a preferential exemption from Hastings’ policy.
