Arnold Makes a Really Big Mistake

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger finally went far enough over the line that conservatives may be sitting home this November instead of voting.

The governor has signed a law (1441) prohibiting colleges, private schools, daycare centers, and other facilities from having moral conduct codes if any of their students receive state financial help with their tuition. There is to be no "discrimination" based on sexual orientation.

This law includes colleges with students receiving Cal Grants as part of their financial aid. There is no exemption for faith-based organizations.

While on the one hand one might make the case that it's better, from the point of view of some religious organizations, not to take money with governmental strings attached in the first place, it seems to me that there could be a serious case made that this law discriminates on the basis of religion.
