A Yale Law School policy was meant to protect LGBTQ students. Others saw anti-Christian bias. Controversy ensued.
Fatima Goss Graves, president and chief executive of the National Women’s Law Center, a nonprofit that advocates on gender issues, was one of the graduates who signed the letter and said religious freedom is important. “Conflating that issue with the ability to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity is just not okay,” she said.
Yale Law was just making clear it wouldn’t use school funds to support employers who discriminate, she said. “There’s nothing that’s controversial about that, in my view.”
