Leaving aside the racism allegations, the whole idea that people can be ranked on their personality (as perceived by an admissions officer) is bizarre. You might as well just check a box for "hot or not".

Beware those who hate the rich more than they love the poor.

It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

Pfft, silly Lana, thinking we'd leave the determination of "hot or not" to fallible, biased humans.  That's why we developed neural networks.
