Appeals court: Chicago parish free to dismiss homosexual music director
July 12, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: A federal appeals court has sided with the Chicago archdiocese in a case involving the dismissal of a parish music director who was involved in a same-sex marriage. Reversing an earlier ruling, the full Seventh Circuit ruled that the Church is protected from anti-discrimination law by the “ministerial exception,” which gives churches the right to determine their own standards for employees engaged in ministry.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
