I’m currently on a plane flying back home from a visit with friends of the ministry. While I was changing planes in Chicago, I asked my colleague, Bruce Hausknecht, to break down in shirt-sleeve English Jack Phillips’ victory today at the Supreme Court.
Without a doubt, today’s Supreme Court decision recognizes that religious freedom is still entitled to its pre-eminent place among our constitutional guarantees.
I’ve been saying for some time that the conflict between LGBT rights and religious freedom doesn’t have to be a win-lose. Both sides are entitled to respect, and it appears that the Supreme Court has affirmed that today.
Special thanks to Bruce for this excellent analysis. Please take a look and let me know what you think.
