SCOTUS protects religious employers from lawsuitsThe U.S. Supreme Court has cemented its reputation as a friend to Christian conservatives with a trio of rulings embracing religious exemptions to certain federal laws and paving the way for public money to go to religious schools.

Religious conservatives welcomed the rulings with delight after expressing disappointment last month after the court found that federal civil rights law protects gay and transgender workers from employment discrimination and invalidated a restrictive Louisiana abortion law.

“When religious freedom is allowed to flourish, everyone wins,” said John Bursch, a lawyer with the conservative Christian legal group Alliance Defending Freedom.
