I think FrontPage is blurring the issue here. A corporation is a private company with the purpose of earning profits. If it feels its profits are improved by having a diverse workforce, it may wish to require training for this from its own employees, though the Kodak policy would appear to be discriminatory towards Catholics. (The issue of whether a private employer may enter into only those contracts she or he wishes is a wider question.) Universities, however, have a special nature in pursuing education and truth.
