Last Friday, the United States Supreme Court issued its decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, ruling that there is a fundamental constitutional right to same-sex marriage. The question now arises as to how this ruling will impact religious organizations that hold beliefs opposed to same-sex marriage.
In this 90 minute webinar, in an interactive manner, our expert panelists will provide guidance as to how the Obergefell ruling will impact religious institutions opposed to same-sex marriage. The panel will take questions from participants.
Specific areas of emphasis will include:
- Tax-exempt status
- Employment discrimination
- Religious school enrollment & operations
- Access to religious facilities (parish halls, etc.)
- Participation in sacred rituals and sacraments, including marital rights
