The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled Friday that Marquette University shouldn’t have fired a conservative professor over his blog post that criticized a student instructor he believed shut down discussion about opposition to gay marriage.
“I hope to share ‘best practices’ from parishes that have successfully reached out to the L.G.B.T. Catholic community,” Father Martin told America.
The chairman of the bishops’ conference said the decision “confirms that people of faith should not suffer discrimination on account of their deeply held religious beliefs.”
But the court is not deciding the big issue in the case, whether a business can refuse to serve gay and lesbian people.
