    has ALWAYS been contingent on all recipients recognizing fully the rights of all people to be free from discrimination, including the practice of their religion (or lack thereof) and the expression of their beliefs regarding said practices. So if you accept federal monies you can't just create a Catholic reality with said federal monies, since our federal government and can't be taken to be an arm of anything promoting pro-Catholicism over any other choices.

      any number of Baptist universities and I want to bring in a keg or hold a late night poker game....that is allowed?  

      Or if I attend a Muslim school...Friday night pork chops to anyone in the halls is ok?  

      What about BYU?  Can I bring my boyfriend to spend the night in my dorm because I don't care about the Mormon views on that?

      This issue has been well litigated and there is no legal basis for your position.

    •  You could not be more wrong (0+ / 0-)

      Not even if you tried.

      This is not opinion (aside from your inaccurate one).  There are CENTURIES of jurisprudence on this and ALL OF IT disagrees with what you just typed.  Without exception.  And with good reason.
