Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Public Theology Professor Andrew T. Walker took to Twitter to label the decision “devastating for religious liberty.”

“It just gave the spirit of the Equality Act in a legal opinion, rather than in statute,” tweeted Walker, who added that a key argument for social conservatives to vote for Donald Trump in November had been negated.

“Gorsuch writing the opinion eviscerates the main rationale that religious conservatives have in voting for Trump. ‘But Gorsuch’ is moot.”

In another tweet, Walker charged that the Supreme Court opinion “impails religious liberty,” “treats men and women as nothing more than a conglomeration of stereotypes,” and “engages in a politically correct form of erasure.”
