    Seems like you honed in on two words and didn't read the rest of the post. I'm not saying she fell under either of those two, I just bolded it because I found it interesting and rather related.

    Do you have any factual support for this theory of yours?
    There's nothing leftist about evolution, it's called science, and it isn't part of any political party.
    And where were you getting the argument that it was?

    I was wondering, lol. Because your earlier posts sounded like what I was saying.

    - race
    - gender
    - age
    - sexual orientation
    - disability
    - genetic disease
    - pregnancy
    - childbirth

    The only thing on that list that is your own decision is religion, which is not a constitutionally protected right in the work place. The only laws that protect religion in the work place are these same discrimination laws.

    Whether anyone here agrees whether or not all of these things should be things companies can't discriminate on, they are regardless. Seeing as how they're there, why would we not want to cover marital status, or the most natural and important thing to human life: procreation?
    In many cases those classes are protected because people fought hard to get laws banning discrimination passed. I think we should also include a broader right to privacy and free expression that would make most off-work activities protected from employment impact.

    Religions deserve just enough exemption to fulfill their religious purpose. Certainly a religious group should be allowed to impose special requirements on its leadership and minsiters etc, but if its a large operation employing dozens or more people, such as hospital, it should not be allowed to discriminate with most positions any more than other businesses or organizations can.

    RapidAlpaca is correct that anti-discrimination laws usually trump contracts in court. That is why racist neighborhood covenants are no longer enforceable.

    Dance around it all you want, unless the school is approved the student doesn't get the Grant or student loan. You can't apply for a Grant and then go school shopping.
    So you just answered my question, the reason that they are not allowed is because they are not accredited. Why should the government fund a school that for all it knows teaches that we actually live on a flat earth?

    The US is not dropping according to any standards. Student achievement is on the rise, and, if you compare apples to apples, middle class to middle class that is, we're on a par with other nations.

    If you have been taught the "critical thinking skills" outlined in the standards I've posted, you'll understand that you can't take at face value everything spewed out of rant radio.

    A Christian school is fine with the First Amendment until and unless it becomes a state supported Christian school teaching the Christian belief system. At that point, it violates that amendment, just as a madrassa would do.

    Re: Woman fired for having sex

    She signed a contract. She didn't have to take a job at San Diego Christian College. She chose to work there, she was well aware of the rules beforehand, she chose to take the job with the full understanding that those rules, if broken, could cause her to be terminated.

    She broke the rules, and she got fired.

    I don't see the problem with this.

    No question she broke the contract; I don't think that's what's in question. But do we really want to let employers dictate our private lives? Do they have a right to ask employees to sign such a ridiculous contract promising things that have nothing to do with the ability to perform the job well?
