University of California admissions officials have been accused in a federal civil rights lawsuit of discriminating against high schools that teach creationism and other conservative Christian viewpoints.It's not clear what the basis of the suit is. It can't be that the plaintiffs are arguing that UC can't set standards for high school courses that will count toward admiission. The first paragraph claims it's a discrimination suit.

I'm surprised that the plaintiffs have the nerver even to file such a suit.
The suit was filed in Los Angeles federal court Thursday by the Assn. of Christian Schools International, which represents more than 800 religious schools in the state, and by the Calvary Chapel Christian School in Murrieta, which has an enrollment of more than 1,000.
