They Still Don’t Get It, So Ministers Don’t Get Vaccine Priority

Chief Justice Roberts has been the center of attention recently, whipsawing both liberals and conservatives with his various opinions.  He sided with Justice Gorsuch and the four “liberals” on the bench in ruling that “sex” in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act includes “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” and he wrote a somewhat baffling …
