    I believe that Hale was denied admission to the bar because he refused to abide by Illinois' legal ethics which prohibit discrimination based on race, et al. In that light, the bar's decision is very much justified.

    And Medved is right in some respects. Unfortunately, he is trying to hide "principled religious opposition" behind the semantic veil of public discourse. What he is talking about is not public discourse, it is hate speech and no different from Matt Hale. It is exactly the kind of talk that Hale espouses and Medved defends that is what caused Matthew Shepard and many, many others to be beaten and killed for simply existing in a fashion that was opposed to Mr. Medved's fanatical beliefs.
