Military can recruit in schools

The AP reports:

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously today that colleges that accept federal money must allow military recruiters on campus, despite university objections to the Pentagon's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays.

Justices rejected a free-speech challenge from law school professors who claimed they should not be forced to associate with military recruiters or promote their campus appearances.

So let me get this straight: The Boy Scouts of America can get public funds, violate local nondiscrimination laws by discriminating against atheists and gays, and use government land and property. Yet, colleges, which seek to practice tolerance, must open their doors to the discriminatory military policy that denies some students equal opportunity.

Discrimination: 2
Tolerance: 0
