Court used Ministerial exemption. Even though she wasn’t a minister The reason the government offers this exemption is because it is too much entanglement in religion If it is against a religion to hire a female pastor, and the government makes the church hire a female, that is too much entanglement in religion because then that is maintaining how the faith must be carried out. Title VII was amended to include age discrimination o A pastor was not promoted because of his age. o Court wouldn’t adjudicate because it is church matters.
