Supreme Court: World Vision may fire non-Christian employees

Catholic World News - October 12, 2011

In a victory for religious liberty, the US Supreme Court has let stand a federal appellate ruling that recognized the right of World Vision--a Christian relief organization--to fire employees who no longer believe in the divinity of Christ.

The Supreme Court’s action “represents a major victory for the freedom of all religious organizations to hire employees who share the same faith--whether Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, or any other religion,” said Richard Stearns, the organization’s US president.
