Richard Katskee, is the Vice President and Legal Director at Americans United for Separation of Church
A majority of the U.S. Supreme Court today appears to embrace a view of religious freedom that in fact protects religious power and privileges for some, at the expense of the rights of people of minority faiths, nonbelievers, women, LGBTQ people, and patients seeking medical treatment. Richard Katskee, Vice President and Legal Director at Americans United for Separation of Church and State, will return to NoVES to talk with us about the potential consequences of that shift, focusing on the Court’s recent decisions concerning religious foster-care agencies and state restrictions on religious gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. He will also preview issues that the Court will be addressing in the coming year and the ways that real religious freedom is being put at risk in those cases.
