The Foundry has reported on one of the briefs in the upcoming Supreme Court battle on same sex marriage. If the court affirms gay marriage religious liberties will be curtailed.
Religious liberty doesn’t stop at the church doors. The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, the nonpartisan public-interest law firm dedicated to protecting the free expression of all religions, filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court making the case that legal recognition of same-sex relationships as marriages creates hazards for religious liberty, particularly when courts impose a redefinition of marriage.
This is a pretty significant court case. Christians (and Muslims, Mormons, Jews, or any other religious body) will experience limits on the use of federal funds, limited access to federal jobs,contracts, be subject to lawsuits, and many other bureaucratic pressures.
