Lutheran church wins Supreme Court case

Lutheran church wins Supreme Court case Lutheran church wins Supreme Court case

However, there is already a well-established principle based on the Free Exercise Clause that bars this kind of discrimination.

"This Court has repeatedly confirmed that denying a generally available benefit exclusively on account of religious identity imposes a penalty on the free exercise of religion", he continued. If the state is allowed under the U.S. Establishment Clause to permit religious displays on public property, it can not bar a display just because it is religious, and it can not prefer a Ten Commandments display over a statue of Satan.

In 2015, Montgomery strictly limited the U.S. Supreme Courts recognition of gay marriage to the union itself and nothing further.

Although Missouri had already changed its state law to allow for churches to benefit from the program, Trinity Lutheran still sought a ruling from the high court to confirm this allowance. "The state merely declines to offer financial support".

Barbara Weinstein, director of the Commission on Social Action of Reform Judaism, issued a statement on behalf of the movement defending Missouri's decision to honor the church-state divide, saying that religious institutions could face "government infringement if they are competing against each other for government grants".

"It would be entirely open to the state (to require) that all of the playgrounds have to be open to people of all sexual preferences", he argued.

GJELTEN: But the court today disagreed.

Neville was released from the hospital on Monday and plans to return to work once he is medically cleared, airport officials said. According to the criminal complaint, Ftouhi yelled in Arabic "Allahu akbar" (God is greatest) before stabbing Neville.


"The exclusion of Trinity Lutheran from a public benefit for which it is otherwise qualified, exclusively because it is a church, is odious to our Constitution all the same, and can not stand", Roberts wrote. In previous rulings, Gorsuch has erred on the side of religious liberty.

RUSSELL MOORE: I'm glad this ruling insists that no American, whether religious or not, should be disadvantaged simply because of what they believe.

The Arkansas Department of Health said they are waiting for the U.S. Supreme Court to give a mandate to the Arkansas Supreme Court with guidelines on moving forward.

GJELTEN: But Chief Justice Roberts did add a footnote that limited the ruling's significance. "So, we're going to see more, more of that".

University of Missouri law professor Carl Esbeck notes that Missouri was the first state to restrict taxpayer dollars to secular organizations. What's wrong is only when the government is subsidizing the church because it's a church.

Justice Clarence Thomas, with Neil Gorsuch, had urged the court to take up the challenge. Public school advocates meanwhile were somewhat relieved.

The justices ordered New Mexico to reconsider the textbook funding case in light of the Missouri playground case, in which justices decided it is unconstitutional to ban public funds from paying for certain projects at religious schools based exclusively on the school's private or religious status.
