Governor Eric Greitens praised the United States Supreme Court’s 7-2 decision today in favor of Trinity Lutheran, a church in Columbia, Missouri.

“People of faith won an important victory today. 

Earlier this year, I reversed Missouri’s policies that discriminated against religious organizations. The ACLU and others attacked our decision. We did not back down, and we will continue to fight for people of faith.

Like our administration, the Supreme Court decided that people of faith should not be discriminated against. Missouri is home to many excellent religious organizations that serve our kids, our families, and our communities. We will continue to work together with these organizations to help the people of Missouri.”
