David French has a good article about recent challenges to First Amendment rights, which these days are usually about trying to shut down the rights of conservatives to express opinions. His take is that these ridiculous challenges end up strengthening 1st A precedents, but are still concerning because they are relentless. The Walls Are Strong, But the Cannon Fire Is Real.
WRT the students at religious colleges who object to policies unsupportive of LGBT rights, French points out that no one made them choose those colleges, and there are plenty of schools which would agree with their POV they could have gone to. I am reminded of Garrison Keillor's summary of Father Emil's yearly sermon on birth control, "If you didn't want to go to Chicago, why did you get on the train?" It is a line I have used many times over the last thirty years, as it applies to so many things.
I miss 1980s Garrison Keillor, by the way. A quiet brilliance, but hatred overcame him.
