SCOTUS Deep Dive: Religion, LGBTQ Rights, & Voting (PODCAST)

Oct. 23, 2020, 8:00 PM

The Supreme Court is gearing up to hear a heated dispute pitting religious rights against LGBTQ rights the day after the election, in what could be an early test for Amy Coney Barrett if confirmed in time as expected.

Becket Fund for Religious Liberty’s William Haun joins “Cases and Controversies” hosts Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin on this deep dive episode to break down the stakes of the case, Fulton v. City of Philadelphia.

Haun’s group represents Sharonell Fulton, Toni Lynn Simms-Busch, and Catholic Social Services, which says the city is wrongly barring them from working in its foster care system because CSS won’t place children with same-sex couples.

The hosts also catch up on the latest on Barrett’s almost certain confirmation, as well as the contentious voting cases that continue to divide the justices on their “shadow docket,” and some new appeals they agreed to hear argued later this term.

Hosts: Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin.

Guest: Will Haun

Producer: David Schultz.
