You are not asking for Sensei not to admit them because of religious beliefs, but because you dislike them.
Alejandro, I don't think that's true. BTDT isn't saying that she dislikes RR people; she's saying that she doesn't want to so much as twitch a whisker to accommodate what she sees as discriminatory religious practices. Since the religious practices in question are in fact discriminatory against her as a woman, it's hard to claim that she doesn't have a case - just that maybe she's being a bit extreme in her refusal to accommodate special needs.
