this case was deeply troubling in relation to the US's attorney asking the justices to support the protection of people working for churches to report crimes committed in these institutions to the State and the hostile responses this generated from the conservative Catholics on the bench couldn't help but be a reminder of the ongoing ugliness in that organization. Do we surrender our civil rights if we join churches or otherwise engage religious institutions like schools and hospitals, and what about children and others with limited capacity for choice? Seems that if there are acceptable/democratic limits on free speech there might also be limits on freedom of religious practices. Please vote people the appointment of judges has serious and long lasting consequences for generations to come.
