Supreme Court Decision Means Religious School Must Recognize LGBTQ Rights Club—With a Major Catch

In a 5–4 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court said that Yeshiva University in New York must (for now) comply with a state court’s previous ruling that it should recognize a campus gay rights organization.

Back in 2019, the LGBTQ Pride Alliance group first strived to be recognized by the university, and then sued in April of 2021. They said, according to NBC News, “the school was required to grant its request because it is a place of public accommodation that is covered by the anti-discrimination law.”
