There’s a reputation going around the Ivy League schools that they are intolerant towards Christian or conservative views. Around the time of Trump’s rise as a candidate, and then his election, there was a sense that Eastern elites in the Ivy League schools and in the big cities didn’t understand the views of conservatives, Christians, pro-lifers, and middle America.
WELL WAY TO GO YALE!! You didn’t do one thing to change that perception!
According to reports, the university has begun, at the request of an LGBT law student group, to tighten the vise around programs, such as loan forgiveness and stipends for summer internships. New policies will clearly hurt students that work at preeminent pro-life legal groups such as the Alliance Defending Freedom, which, obviously, is the point.
New from @YaleLawSch: YLS "admitted that if @AllianceDefends does not certify that it will comply with Yale’s policy, then students working for ADF will be ineligible for public interest fellowships and the loan forgiveness program."https://t.co/J66bNYIhvK

The Daily Wire reports that the Yale law student group Outlaws, has been pressuring the school after the conservative law students invited members of Alliance Defending Freedom to discuss the Masterpiece Cakeshop Supreme Court case, which centered on whether or not a baker could be forced to make a wedding cake for a gay wedding. Simple enough right? I mean, every Yale law student dreams of being a Supreme Court Justice or Attorney General one day, so you’d think they’d want to hear from one of the most successful legal groups in the past several years.
According to e-mails obtained by Daily Wire, the LGBT student group wrote, “Let’s call a spade a spade: ADF is a hate group that does not belong on our campus and does not deserve legitimization.” Even worse, the day prior, on February 24, the Outlaws student group board wrote to the entire student body to seemingly urge that the admissions office crack down on admitting conservatives:
Additionally, we are asking the Yale Law School administration to clarify its [Summer Public Interest Fellowship (“SPIF”)] and admissions policies regarding organizations that discriminate against members of its community. Will students be able to receive SPIF funding to push discriminatory agendas during their summers? Will students be admitted to this community who, for example, have worked to sue cities and states for passing anti-discrimination laws and ordinances?”
Yupp, tolerance means trying to ban conservatives from your school as students and as speakers. Odd.
