Kavanaugh slams ‘pure discrimination’ against churches as court declines to hear religious liberty case
(Worthy News) - The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case about whether churches or other religious institutions in New Jersey are entitled to public funds for historic preservation.
The ruling involved a four-year-long battle in Morris County over whether county money should be used to repair historic churches. The New Jersey State Supreme Court ruled last year that the county could not continue to give historic preservation grants to 12 churches.
For years, Morris County had been giving churches money to make aesthetic and structural repairs to historic churches under a historic preservation program. In 2015, a county freeholder objected, arguing that taxpayer funds should not be used to repair places of worship.
The Supreme Court’s ruling was unanimous but three justices said the issue should soon be addressed. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
