The chief of a major religious-rights litigator warns a Joe Biden administration will bring ‘massive amounts of litigation‘ to reverse the Trump administration’s gains for religious liberty.
Biden, a Catholic who disavows the church’s pro-life stance, repeatedly has criticized the Trump administration for supporting religious liberty.

‘The Trump administration maintained the former position and, through the HHS and the Solicitor General’s office, sided with religious groups disputing Obama or state-level mandates pushing in the other direction.
Biden, on the other hand, has promised within his first 100 days to enforce the framework of the Equality Act, proposed legislation that understands sex as a gender construct, across all federal agencies.
Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch said recently that more such cases would arise.
In the Fulton case, the city of Philadelphia contends it can ban a Catholic agency from its government foster-care program if the agency refuses to place children with same-sex couples, in violation of its faith.
Obergefell was the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling, which Chief Justice John Roberts criticized at the time as unrelated to the Constitution.
