Anti Christian bigotry at Yale.

Ted Cruz blasts Yale Law School for reportedly denying financial help to students, grads with 'traditional Christian views'

'Transparently discriminatory'

Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is launching an investigation into Yale Law School and has threatened legal action against it over reports that the institution is denying financial assistance to students and graduates who hold "traditional Christian views," the Washington Examiner said.
Cruz sent a Thursday letter to Yale Law School Dean Heather Gerken decrying a new policy the Texas senator said is rooted in an "unconstitutional animus and a specific discriminatory intent both to blacklist Christian organizations and to punish Yale students whose values or religious faith lead them to work there," the paper said.
He added that the policy to "no longer provide any stipends or loan repayments for students serving in organizations professing traditional Christian views or adhering to traditional sexual ethics" is "transparently discriminatory," the Examiner reported.

What's the background?

According to a Monday piece in The Federalist by Yale Law student Aaron Haviland — a Marine Corps vet who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and the University of Cambridge — an LGBTQ group complained after Christian law firm Alliance Defending Freedom was invited on campus in February to speak about the "Masterpiece" Christian baker case.
