To be clear, I'm not commenting on whether President Joel's comments are "fair," or "legal" for that matter. I care that they are discriminatory, and I condemn them. If his beliefs are grounded in his religion, I condemn his religion. This is entirely separate from the question of whether people have, or should have, a right to their religious beliefs, or a right to create a private institution that discriminates because of them.
