Discrimination to protest discrimination?

Members of the American Philosophical Association have petitioned the organization to punish religious colleges or universities that require their students to abide by ethical standards that include the prohibition of engaging in homosexual acts. So far the petition has gathered over 1000 signatures, mostly people from academia.

The petitioners believe that religious institutions should not be able to act on their moral beliefs. The idea that “you can have your beliefs, you just can’t live by them” is tyranny in the guise of “enlightenment.”

Religious discrimination is now officially en vogue in academia. Not that it hasn’t been for a while now, they are just more brazen about it.
