Chelsea and I look at the ruling in the recent Supreme Court ruling on two related cases about affirmative action in college admissions.
Before addressing the quarreling between the justices over how to apply the Fourteenth Amendment to college admissions, I give my own opinion that the First Amendment’s “freedom of association” should legally allow universities to determine their own admission policies (good or bad) because, like anything else in a free market, there should be no government control or funding. I give examples for how the Fourteenth Amendment could be abused to harm Christian college admission policies.
But, given the system we have, we believe the conservative majority interpreted and applied the spirit of the Fourteenth Amendment correctly and historically.
The conservative majority argued that the only way to end racial discrimination is actually to end it and seek a color-blind application of the law. The liberal minority contend that the solution requires a persistent “race-conscious” policy until imbalances are resolved.
Chelsea and I argue that the liberal policies as a worldview are unBiblical and perpetuate the problem. Pitting people against each other based on unchangeable physical characteristics or history will never heal past problems.
