Zack and Peterson are back this week to talk about the Supreme Court ruling in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez and the good-intentioned but not always effective efforts of allies. Zack outlines the details of the case and the importance of nondiscrimination policies in higher education and highlights, in particular the dissent in the case. Marvin Bloom makes a cameo to help connect Leon Festinger’s theories of cognitive dissonance to the argument. Then, Peterson shares some experiences of allies gone wild, including a recent pride event he attended that left him feeling anything but proud. In preparation for next week, send us more feedback about our body image episode!
