New York free to evict churches

The news for religious freedom out of the Supreme Court isn’t all good, though. The Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal filed by a Bronx church that meets in a public school against a decision by the Board of Education to evict it. (The Board said that it was protecting the minds of “impressionable youth”!)

The church seemed to be on good legal grounds, since the courts have found that if a public facilities decides to rent out its space, it cannot discriminate as to who may do so. The Alliance Defense Fund found the Court’s decision not to take the case “befuddling“.
