(Worthy News) - An Indiana federal district court has sided in favor of the Child Evangelism Fellowship ministry in a discrimination case with the school district of Pike Township.
The court ruled the school district violated the First Amendment by requiring CEF to pay facilities-use fees for Good News Club meetings while waiving the fees for similar but non-religious groups.
The Good News Club is a children's ministry whose gatherings include Bible lessons, songs, and scripture memory games for Kindergarteners through fifth graders, free of charge. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
