The Family Research Council, which was part of an amicus brief filed in support of Trinity Lutheran, applauded the result of the case.

FRC Center for Religious Liberty Director Travis Weber, who attended the April oral arguments, said in a statement Monday that the decision was "a win for the freedoms that Americans have long exercised."

Weber put an especial emphasis on the newest justice, Judge Neil Gorsuch, who he saw as a positive force on the high court.

"With the recent addition of Justice Gorsuch, we are much more optimistic about the future of religious freedom in America," said Weber.

"Justice Gorsuch's presence will re-enforce a welcome originalist voice in not just the Trinity Lutheran case but also plenty of pivotal cases in the decades to come."
