Case could impact more than churches


This is a fascinating case well covered, as usual, by Christianity Today. It is a coup that the US Supreme Court heard arguments:

“Few cases make it through the costly and time-intensive litigation process to arrive before the Supreme Court. This makes Reed’s case unusual. But the fact that the plaintiff represents such a small religious group is not, said Eric Rassbach, deputy general counsel of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. Larger churches and religious organizations often have political clout that smaller ones do not.

“‘It’s not an accident that it’s [smaller] groups running afoul of the political system,’ Rassbach said. ‘In this situation, there’s no political cost to just shutting down the signs. That’s when you want the First Amendment to come in and protect the little guy.’”
