Religious liberty is under direct assault. And churches and religious schools are the target.
Churches and religious organizations have a constitutional right to ensure that their employees follow their faith. Imagine if a church couldn’t fire a pastor who rejected God or a religious school teacher who taught against the Church’s faith.

Two major cases that the Ninth Circuit wrongly decided are now before the Supreme Court. We’re once again filing a critical amicus brief at the Supreme Court to defend the religious liberty of churches and religious organizations, but we need your voice.
As we defend churches and religious organizations’ constitutional right to religious liberty at the Supreme Court, we need your Tax-Deductible support. Even $5 makes an impact.
Your voice will have a tremendous impact. Please consider supporting our work with a tax-deductible donation using the form to the right. Thank you.
