Subsidized discrimination for dummies: a handy guide

Ever the helpful fellow, I’ve gone ahead and illustrated the solution in the form of this enlightening little flowchart:

Flowchart: “Subsidized Discrimination for Dummies” (If you’re a religious institution who receives government funding, you may not discriminate)

Now, go forth and ignore any religious whining about wanting to have their cake and eat it, too. Only they have the nerve to demand special and thoroughly undeserved exemptions from rules that everyone else must follow.
