Mollie's post about the newest SCOTUS decision on religious liberty and recent Ricochet discussions about morals legislation, particularly relating to the issue of gay marriage, make this an opportune time to discuss a bill that is in committee in Congress.
I wonder if Ricochet members think this bill is morals legislation? H.R. 998, with 150 co-sponsors in the House, would ban discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students (or those perceived to fall into any of the aforementioned categories) in any school that accepts federal funding. There is no exemption for religious or other private schools. (This is comparable to Title IX legislation and regulations relating to gender discrimination.)
Is this bill about freedom, morality, or both? How does it go together with the recent SCOTUS decision?
