Because allowing religions to have rules is just, so, wrong

This from the country where the head of state is the head of the established religion:

In an explosive decision, the court concluded that basing school admissions on a classic test of Judaism — whether one’s mother is Jewish — was by definition discriminatory. Whether the rationale was “benign or malignant, theological or supremacist,” the court wrote, “makes it no less and no more unlawful.”

The case rested on whether the school’s test of Jewishness was based on religion, which would be legal, or on race or ethnicity, which would not. The court ruled that it was an ethnic test because it concerned the status of M’s mother rather than whether M considered himself Jewish and practiced Judaism.

So religion is whatever you feel like it is. Nice ruling.

Of course, if he cared so much, instead of suing he could just, you know, convert.
