Capitol Hill Brief — Denial of Basic Services

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


The state of Missouri in the Trinity Lutheran religious liberty Supreme Court case went so far as to suggest that even basic health and safety benefits (like police and fire protection) may be denied to religious groups solely based on their religious convictions.

[Audio Clip] Attorney James Layton: Even physical changes — even if they have a safety element — may still have an entanglement problem, because we are saying to the church, you — you have this now incentive to rearrange your property, your church site, to maximize the amount you get from the state.

This is simply shocking.  The United States Constitution does not require this type of government hostility towards religion.

Let us pray for this case.
