Puerto Rico Victory | First Liberty

New Supreme Court Decision is a Major Win for Churches & Faith-Based Schools

But with the rights of religious organizations under attack more than ever, we need your support to keep winning!

The Supreme Court’s decision to vacate the horrible ruling by the Puerto Rico Supreme Court is a big victory—but it is evidence of an extremely troubling pattern.

The government should never be in the business of telling churches or faith-based organizations how to run their programs and manage their affairs. Yet that’s exactly what the Puerto Rico Supreme Court did with their initial ruling—and it’s not the first time we’ve seen it happen.

This growing pattern of attacking the autonomy of churches is disturbing and dangerous. After all, if a court or state agency can tell a church or school how to operate, it’s only a matter of time until the government is telling churches what to believe.

That’s why this most recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court is so important for the First Freedom of all Americans—and why we need your continued support to keep fighting back against this rising wave of anti-faith hostility.

Erasing the autonomy of churches and faith-based organizations would be a disaster for all people of faith in America. Indeed, it would run counter to the very founding principles of our nation. Yet that’s exactly what could’ve happened in this case had First Liberty not intervened.

But to continue fighting for your religious freedom at the Supreme Court in matters like this, we need you to stand with us. We will never charge churches a single cent to fight for their rights in court—which means we can only accomplish victories like this one with your support.
