Four years ago, the Supreme Court of the United States legalized same sex marriage across the United States. While that was certainly a great step forward in the fight against discrimination, it was not enough to prevent it in the day to day professional lives where a person who is gay may still be fired for being gay. Today, the SCOTUS will hear several cases stemming from the question about whether an employer can legally fire an employee because of their sexual orientation. A question that a reasonable person may think it is easily answered in the negative-but yet, the faith of millions of folks will now be in the hands of a very conservative Supreme Court.
