When it comes to blatant leftist power moves to thwart any vestigial resistance to cultural degeneracy, apparently you can never be too cynical. In this post, Jeff Culbreath and the rest of us sensible folk here at W4 celebrated Catholic University of America's sensible decision to re-institute single-sex dormitories.
Now, via SpeakUp University blog, I learn that some lawyer is threatening to sue CUA if it does so for allegedly violating the District of Columbia's non-discrimination laws barring discrimination in housing on the basis of sex.
So, two questions (at least): First, have local laws banning housing discrimination on the basis of sex ever before been taken to require any university to have co-ed dorms? Second, is there not a religious exemption that CUA could use even if so? Mind you, a religious exemption should not be necessary. Secular universities all used to have single-sex dorms and certainly should be allowed to do so even now. Maybe some of them still do.
Hopefully this is just some crack-pot lawyer who won't get anywhere. But I'm not counting my chickens quite yet. Guess they just couldn't allow even the smallest blow to be struck against Fornication 101.
