Defend Churches & Religious Organizations at the Supreme Court

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.

The Ministerial Exception is the constitutionally based principle that protects churches and religious organizations’ right to hire and fire based on their faith. The Supreme Court has unanimously upheld this (in a case in which we filed a critical amicus brief).

Now far-Left judges on the Ninth Circuit are trying to overturn Supreme Court precedent that protects churches and religious organizations. But that’s not how the Constitution works.

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.
