Have any of you been following this case? http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Justic...-government-line-in-church-state-case-amazing From the one side, it sounds on the surface like a basic ADA case that would have nothing to do with religion if it weren't happening in a parochial school and for which the law would seem to be clear. There seems to be nothing religious involved in terms of why she was let go or why she shouldn't be re-hired. On the other hand, apparently the line between whether she performs a religious job or not is somewhat blurry, especially with the way the Lutheran church is structured, and apparently this leads to a "can of worms" argument that would put the government in the business of regulating religion, and there doesn't appear to be a bright line that distinguishes her situation from, say, a gender discrimination suit, where, clearly, the status quo is that the rule is different for religious organizations. And yet... I think I'm not incorrect in stating that the church must comply with other aspects of labor law as it relates to the religious workers it hires -- I think things like minimum wage requirements apply to the church in the same way they apply to other organizations, do they not? Actually I don't know too much about this.
