Biden DOJ signals it will defend law that allows discrimination in schools

The Justice Department said in a court filing Tuesday that it will continue to defend a federal law that allows religious schools to discriminate against LGBTQ students.

The filing came in a federal lawsuit in Oregon from students at religious schools who are suing the government for providing funding to schools with discriminatory policies.

The move seems to conflict with the Biden administration's March memo from the DOJ's Civil Rights Division pledging that "[a]ll persons should receive equal treatment under the law, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation," but it also aligns with the DOJ's duty to defend federal laws.

First still defending Trump against E. Jean Carroll and now this.

Who is Merrick Garland working for?

It’s my understanding the case is being adjudicated as a statutory issue, and not a Constitutional one, so the DoJ would be required to defend the existing law that includes the religious exemption.

Isn't this what you people wanted because you hate people like AOC so much? Congrats on your moderate Dems to counter the entire extreme right because "woke" is more offensive to you than the entire GOP being authoritarian, Fascist, white supremacist trash.

Exactly— you want real change? You have to elect real change agents.

If Trump could direct the DOJ to do his bidding so could a real progressive president

Biden and the Democrats have given up.

R7, they act like abused spouses who constantly give the abuser chance after chance after chance.

There is no such thing as bipartisanship with the GOP. They have made it crystal clear for over a decade that their only job is to obstruct everything the Dems try to do which serves to help people, regardless of pol. affil.

Biggest news from SCOTUS today is that Kagan just wrote an opinion in a case that was argued in November.

The Obamacare case and the LGBT discrimination case were also argued in November. This most likely means that Roberts has Obamacare and Alito has LGBT rights.

Schools that receive financial aid shouldn’t be allowed to discriminate.
