Transgender Rights: Redefining the Job of Courts?

Last week the Supreme Court heard arguments in R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc. v. EEOC, a case where a Christian funeral home was sued after it had terminated its male funeral director, the prominent face of the establishment to the public, after he “transitioned” to a female identity and adopted female attire – something that conflicted with the owner’s orthodox view that gender is a God-given, biological attribute. The funeral home’s Biblical beliefs were well known and had been publicized on its website.

Religious Rights in an Age of Wrongs

On Wednesday, September 11, 2019, at 9:00 a.m. in the National Press Club’s Zenger Room in Washington, D.C., there will be a unique three-way conversation between a career national journalist and two civil liberty attorneys – one a Muslim, the other an Evangelical Christian. Civil liberties attorney and General Counsel for NRB, Craig Parshall, will be launching the discussion with Muslim religious rights attorney and scholar Asma Uddin, the author of the recently released When Islam Is Not a Religion, joined by national journalist and media veteran Steven Waldman, whose most recent book is Sacred Liberty – America’s Long, Bloody, and Ongoing Struggle for Religious Freedom. Parshall calls this event “a unique window into the blunt, controversial questions that most divide America’s religious communities when it comes to civil rights and public responsibilities, as well as an exploration into what could also unite us.”
