Court rules: Churches can be singled out for exclusion


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Here’s the latest development in – the up and down, lose, win, lose, and continue to fight case of – Bronx Household of Faith v. Board of Education of the City of New York. This is the case that attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund have been fighting since 1995 – the year after this unique legal ministry was founded to defend and preserve your religious liberty.


For 16 years, the New York City Department of Education has spent tremendous sums of taxpayer dollars opposing the Bronx Household of Faith, a New York inner-city church, (and dozens of other churches!) from renting empty space for its Sunday worship services at its schools – even though it allows all other community groups to rent space for their meetings.


Despite several U.S. Supreme Court rulings that say the government must allow religious groups to have the same access to government buildings that other groups have, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit just decreed that New York City public schools can single out worship services for exclusion when deciding who can and cannot rent school facilities for weekend meetings.


ADF attorneys will appeal the 2nd Circuit’s latest decision – as the final outcome of this case could have wide-ranging ramifications for thousands of churches that meet in public schools across America and the 60-100 churches in New York City that would be displaced by this court ruling.


This anti-worship policy is just another example of denials of religious liberty that our Constitution protects. The battle for your religious freedom is long and costly – but it can and will be won with your prayers, God’s grace, and unyielding perseverance. You have the opportunity to help support our ongoing legal efforts by visiting https://www.alliancedefensefund.org/Donate.


Please be in prayer for ultimate victory in this case, for our brothers and sisters we represent across New York, and for the dedicated ADF attorneys who will continue, after all these years, to fight for the constitutionally protected rights of so many churches – like Bronx Household of Faith – that bring the love and hope of Jesus Christ to their local communities.


Thank you for faithfully standing with us to keep the door open for the spread of the Gospel.


Yours for religious freedom in America,
Alan Sears
President, CEO, and General Counsel
