Supreme Court Requests Solicitor General's Opinion on Sabbath Accommodation Case

Recommended Posts

Stan

The value of the Patterson case does not merely hinge on its facts, which would likely have to be developed at the trial level, but more importantly, it provides a vehicle for the Circuit courts to obtain needed guidance from the Supreme Court in order to consistently interpret Title VII religious accommodation requirements.

I have a lot of trouble trying to figure out what kind of sense this sort of lawsuit makes and exactly how it can be a witness for Christ, or an example of "keeping" the Sabbath...this seems more like TAKING the Sabbath. Im sure Ill get some flak over this.

I have discussed this case with an SDA attorney friend of mine who regularly litigates.   He shares my opinion that this case may not be the proper case to litigate.   He thinks that it could result in an adverse decision.  If this were to happen, it would set Sabbath keepers back into a worse position than the one in which they now have.
