An Unexpected Ruling

A state appeals court made an odd ruling this week.

It seems that there is a private religious school, and there were two girls who had "'a bond of intimacy' that was 'characteristic of a lesbian relationship.'"

The school investigated, and expelled the girls. Naturally, the girls sued.

In response to that suit, an appeals court decided this week that the private religious school was not a business and therefore did not have to comply with a state law that prohibits businesses from discriminating... The appeals court called its decision "narrow," but lawyers on both sides of the case said it would protect private religious schools across [the state] from such discrimination suits.

Now this seems like a perfectly logical ruling, and makes a lot of sense. But here is the wierd part: the court that held that private religious schools can apply traditional sexual mores to their students? It's in California.

Never fear though. The girls are appealing to the California Supreme Court. There is yet "hope" that the wackos ... I mean, progressives ... will win out.

And this time the L word that wins out is the denomination of the school. Lutheran.
