Issues: (1) Whether a state may bar ministers from inculcating or encouraging certain religious values in youth, when those ministers are also licensed by the state as mental health providers; (2) whether repeated references by a legislature to religious motivations, prayer, spiritual interventions, and religious conversion as a cause for governmental concern are of no religion clause significance, so long as the legislature identifies an additional secular concern; (3) whether facial neutrality shields from strict scrutiny a regulation that directly or indirectly restricts religious practices; and (4) whether minors' rights to privacy, autonomy and self-definition are violated by a state's determination that they may only seek to reduce same-sex attraction on their own or with the assistance of unlicensed individuals, and they may not seek professional help to do so.

Today at SCOTUS: The investiture of Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to serve as a justice. Jackson was sworn in over the summer, so the investiture is purely ceremonial. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris reportedly are expected to attend the invite-only event at the court.
