The Supreme Courts decision on Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC is a win for religious freedom.
The high points:
- First, the ruling unambiguously affirms the vital constitutional doctrine known as the “ministerial exception.”
- Second, the Court expressly agreed with every federal court of appeals to have considered the question that the ministerial exception “is not limited to the head of a religious congregation.”
- Third, the Court clarified that the protections of the ministerial exception are not limited to cases where a religious group fires a minister only for a religious reason.
