Supreme Court Rules Religious School Can Use Taxpayer Funds For Playground

SC rules that churches can receive tax payer fundsThe U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that taxpayer-funded grants for playgrounds available to nonprofits under a state program could not be denied to a school run by a church.

"The consequence is, in all likelihood, a few extra scraped knees. But the exclusion of Trinity Lutheran from a public benefit for which it is otherwise qualified, solely because it is a church, is odious to our Constitution all the same, and cannot stand," Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority.

Supreme Court upholds same-sex parents' birth certificate rights

Supreme Court rules for birth certificate righ to show same sex parentsThe Supreme Court on Monday struck down an Arkansas law that treated same-sex couples differently than opposite-sex couples on their children's birth certificates, over the dissent of three conservative justices.

The ruling came from the court without one justice's authorship. But Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch dissented.

The practice is rare following the high court's 2015 decision striking down state bans on same-sex marriage, but some states put the husbands of new mothers on birth certificates even if they are not the biological fathers, while making no provision for same-sex spouses.

Supreme Court will hear religious liberty challenge to gay weddings

wedding cake court case to be heard by SCOTUSThe Supreme Court agreed Monday to reopen the national debate over same-sex marriage.

The court will hear a challenge from a Colorado baker who had lost lower court battles over his refusal to create a wedding cake for a gay couple. Like a New Mexico photographer three years ago, the baker cited his religious beliefs.

The justices -- who upheld same-sex marriage nationwide in a landmark 2015 ruling -- apparently decided that despite state laws barring discrimination based on sexual orientation, the merchants' obligation to same-sex couples was not necessarily baked in the cake.

Supreme Court To Take On Trump’s Travel Ban

Justices of the supreme courtThe Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case on President Donald Trump’s ban on visitors from six Muslim-majority countries. The case will be argued in October.

Within two weeks of taking office, Trump issued an executive order restricting visits from seven Muslim-majority countries for three months and suspending America’s refugee resettlement program, arguing that federal officials needed to review the vetting process in the interest of national security.

The order fulfilled one of the new president’s most controversial campaign promises. But the chaotic weekend that ensued ― dozens of people detained at airports and protests nationwide ― also played an early role in defining the Trump administration as clumsy and disinterested in the details and process of policymaking.
