CA Court: Religious schools can discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation

This is the natural consequence of allowing religious exemptions to discrimination laws. School can expel lesbian students, court rules. (LA Times) California law prohibits businesses from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation. A state appellate court has ruled that a private Christian school could legally expel two students for having an allegedly lesbian relationship. The court reasoned that the school was not a business and therefore wasn't subject to the law. The girls' attorney is planning to appeal to the California Supreme Court.

The school stated that the girls were behaving in a demonstrably lesbian manner or some such hogwash. Perhaps one of them left her U-haul in the loading zone?

It makes me sad.
