Law school policy labeled 'crazy'
Christian Legal Society
A spokesman for a conservative legal group is taking note of the significance of a Supreme Court justice calling a law school policy "crazy." The case in question deals with a club on campus that is fighting to maintain its Christian standards.
The high court last week heard arguments from the University of California's Hastings College of the Law and a campus chapter of the Christian Legal Society. CLS claims Hastings' policy forces them to accept as voting members and potential leaders, classmates who do not share their core religious beliefs.

Hastings says official campus groups may not exclude people due to religious beliefs or sexual orientation. But during arguments, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was reported as saying: "To require the Christian Society to allow atheists not just to join, but to conduct Bible classes -- that's crazy."

The Supreme Court is expected to render its decision on the case by the end of June.
