The Supreme Court has granted cert to the case Hosanna Tabor Church v. EEOC. According to my friend and legal scholar Rick Garnett, this could be "the most important religious freedom case in 20 years," and Garnett offers a quick, sound summation of why the Supreme Court should overturn the lower court's decision. I see no reason to quibble with Garnett's reading of the case which will have enormous ramifications for the Catholic Church's hiring practices, indeed, for its ability to carry out its many ministries.
