The trouble with principles

Andrew Koppelman

The Supreme Court's decision in Bostock v. Clayton County protects LGBT people from employment discrimination, but not discrimination in housing or public accommodations. A federal statute ought to pass Congress easily. It won't, because people mistakenly think that both discrimination and religious liberty are matters of principle about which no compromise is possible. That misunderstands the role of principle. I explain in a new piece at The Hill, here.
