A Win for Religious Liberty

Listen:      MP3 ​​​| Order

​Mat discussed some interesting cases that came out of the U.S. Supreme Court, in particular, a religious liberty case involving Trinity Lutheran Church (Missouri).

Trinity wanted to resurface its playground for the children. The state wanted people to apply for grants to make playing surfaces safer through a rubber tire recycling program. The church applied and was set to be a grant recipient. Unfortunately they were informed that they were being denied solely because they're a church. The church filed suit and the case went to the Federal Court of Appeals. The church lost and the Supreme Court decided to step in. In the end, the Supreme Court handed the church a tremendous 7-2 victory. Although he didn't write the majority opinion, Judge Neil Gorsuch issued his own separate, concurring opinion.

Mat also discussed the travel ban that was upheld by the SCOTUS. The injunctions that were issued against it have been partially lifted which means that at least portions of the ban can go into effect.

Another case mentioned was the Masterpiece Cake Shop case in Colorado. It involves an individual who refused to use his talent and artistry to promote a same-sex wedding ceremony. The court has agreed to hear the case sometime in the Fall with a decision likely in early 2018.
