Beware of the “potentially evangelical”

University of Kentucky gets themselves crosswise on diversity hiring –and probably violated Federal law–by turning down astronomer C. Martin Gaskell, who is “potentially evangelical.”  He’s suing.  Boneheads, especially thumbsuckers Sally Shafer and Michael Cavagnero.  Even if you are discriminating against evangelicals–despicable as that is–you don’t put yourself on record saying so.  When the facuilty and staff make a major unforced error like this, U of K could lose their shirt, and get renamed Gaskell Christian University.

Tip from the Instapundit, who foresees a bad outcome of U of K, regardless of how the lawsuit plays out.
