U.S. Supreme Court Hears Oral Argument in R.G and G.R Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC
First Liberty Institute filed amicus brief in case involving Title VII

Washington, DC—The following statement may be attributed to Stephanie Taub, Senior Counsel to First Liberty Institute:

“Redefining protected classes in the law could have serious ramifications for religious liberty, and in particular, religiously affiliated organizations.  It is vitally important that federal employment discrimination law is not rewritten to hinder the religious freedom of churches, synagogues, mosques, religious schools, religious charities, and all other nonprofit religious ministries.  The Supreme Court of the United States should avoid interpreting the law in any way that could imperil religious liberty.”
