Update: Hosanna-Tabor v. EEOC

I wrote about this religious liberty case before the U.S. Supreme Court a few months ago. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously today on the side of the church. It upheld the ministerial exception, which prohibits employees of a church (or in this case, a Christian school) from suing the church for employment discrimination. This is good news! Get the state out of the church, and let the church do its job.
