  •  I totally agree that enterprises with a secular (0+ / 0-)

    purpose even though they are owned by religious organizations should have to follow the law, especially when they take federal funds. That's what I said in my original comment.

    However, the SC has ruled that religious schools can discriminate and anti-discrimination is part of "employment law." so no, it is not the "end of story" that they "must follow employment law."  I believe this case was about a primary or secondary school and not  a university. I believe that is also the case with this particular law also; it does not apply to primary and secondary schools.

    As to "profit-generating BUSINESSES", I do believe that the institutions in question - colleges and hospitals - are non-profit institutions. For profit universities and hospitals operate under different laws than non-profits in many areas.
