“And, to be sure, this Court has held same-sex marriage a matter of constitutional right and various States have enacted laws that preclude discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. But it is also true that no bureaucratic judgment condemning a sincerely held religious belief as “irrational” or “offensive” will ever survive strict scrutiny under the First Amendment. In this country, the place of secular officials isn’t to sit in judgment of religious beliefs, but only to protect their free exercise. Just as it is the “proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence” that we protect speech that we hate, it must be the proudest boast of our free exercise jurisprudence that we protect religious beliefs that we find offensive.”

–Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch in gay wedding cake decision concurrence, June 4, 2018.

DOUGLAS PUBLIC SAFETY COMMISSION MEETS: The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission, which was created this year as part of a school-safety law, will meet in Broward County. Among the topics will be school discipline and diversion programs. Lawmakers formed the commission after the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 people. (Thursday, 8:30 a.m., BB&T Center, Chairman’s Club, 1 Panther Parkway, Sunrise.)

FACEBOOK FRIENDS ON DOCKET: The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments in three cases, including a dispute about whether a circuit judge should be disqualified from a case because she was a Facebook friend of an attorney representing one of the parties. The Herssein Law Group took the issue to the Supreme Court after the 3rd District Court of Appeal rejected a request to disqualify Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Beatrice Butchko. The dispute stems from a lawsuit that the firm filed against a former client, United Services Automobile Association, for alleged breach of contract and fraud. As part of the case, the law firm accused a company official of witness tampering, and USAA hired Israel Reyes, a former judge, to represent the official. The Herssein firm sought to disqualify Butchko because she was a Facebook friend of Reyes. The firm raised concerns about receiving a fair and impartial trial, but Butchko declined to recuse herself. (Thursday, 9 a.m., Florida Supreme Court, 500 South Duval St., Tallahassee.)

SUPREME COURT RELEASES OPINIONS: The Florida Supreme Court is scheduled to release its weekly opinions. (Thursday, 11 a.m.)

Nov. 7: The Flagler Education Foundation leads one of its bi-monthly free tours of the school district's Classroom to Careers Flagship Programs. Each public school offers a unique Flagship Program, which allows students unique opportunities to discover paths that lead them from the classroom to career success. The tours visit one or two schools at a time, with student ambassadors that take the group on a guided tour of their programs. Community members are able to interact with the students, the Education Foundation, and school staff to ask questions about the programs. The goal is to inform the public of the programs students participate in from Kindergarten through high school. There are currently 23 programs spread over all nine traditional public schools. Anyone interested in participating may contact the Education Foundation's Shelley Wheeler at wheelers@flaglerschools.com or 386-437-8929 x1123, for the time and location to meet. Per school safety guidelines everyone will need to bring a picture ID to enter the schools.

The project will return dozens of acres of ditches and spoil piles to functional wetland that will yield food for fish and wildlife, filter and clean water, and provide other benefits.
