In a much-anticipated decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled yesterday, in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, that public colleges can require official, religiously-affiliated, campus groups to conform to the school’s anti-bias rules.
Steve Benen wrote this one up yesterday. As he put it:
Many universities feared a ruling in CLS’s favor would mandate subsidies for all kinds of fringe and extremist groups, and the decision may likely create new rules for campus groups nationwide.
It should generate a significant religious right freak-out.
