So you're in the same camp as those who want to force the (private organization) BSA to take hire women as camp counselors? I think that one has been settled, as has the question of religious organizations not being forced to hire those who do not agree with their religious tenets. It's like suggesting that no contracts can be awarded to Catholic charities because they don't allow men to become nuns.
Mind you, if we lived in a perfect world, there would be no need for government involvement in anything even remotely resembling charity, welfare, etc. However, as long as we don't the government is going to award contracts, and it's just as wrong to discriminate against certain bidders on the basis of their faith as it would be for certain bidders to be rejected on the basis of their color. Unless, it is up to government to pick and choose WHICH factors they will discriminate upon.
...it's just as wrong to discriminate against certain bidders on the basis of their faith as it would be for certain bidders to be rejected on the basis of their color.
Once again, I agree with you, in part. What you say here I agree with. But what's to keep religious organizations from hiring only members of their faith? In a small organization that may not be a big deal, but in a larger charity organization? What do we do about the charity with the sign up front that says, "Jews need not apply"?
