BYU is a private institution, not a public one.

They were actually censured for it a couple of years back.

My post was apparently confusing.  I am very clear on the meanings of
the initials.  I was attempting to gently, without getting in the
poster's face, point out the apparent hypocrisy of claiming to be an
equal opportunity employer then stating that preference would be given
to LDS candidates.  I only succeeded in confusing many who responded on
list and most who wrote to me off list.  I apologize.  Perhaps I should
have been less subtle.  The original was posted by a nice man and I
wanted to point it the paradox with out attacking or embarrassing him.
I did not handle it well.  I'll be less subtle now.

I actually have no problem with a religious school hiring their
members.  I do have a problem with the pretense that all applicants will
have an equal opportunity.  Some applicants are clearly more equal than
others.

Best,
Mike Jensen
