Today, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Trinity Lutheran Church v. Pauley to decide whether excluding churches from a public grant program violates the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause and the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause.
At issue is whether the government can exclude a qualified church from a grant program that uses neutral criteria for approving awards solely because the applicant is a church. There is a split among the federal courts of appeal on this issue, which the High Court is expected to resolve.
Liberty Counsel filed an extensive amicus brief in the U. S. Supreme Court, on its own behalf and for the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference-CONEL, to end discrimination against churches.
+ + Double standards are wrong!
Faith-based organizations providing disaster relief, community services, and aid to the poor are facing the choice of violating their faith or giving up federal aid.
And, California and Illinois have passed laws forcing pro-life pregnancy centers to promote abortion, yet abortion clinics are not required to consult about pro-life options.
+ + To the secularists, it’s “Open Season” on religious liberty. Send a message to President Trump urging him to take action!
Liberty Counsel Action is rallying pro-faith citizens to call on President Trump to make good on his campaign promise to offer executive protections on behalf of religious liberty before our First Amendment rights are decimated by powerful secularist organizations, anti-faith government agencies, and our courts.
We are delivering our Open Letter to President Trump TOMORROW! It is imperative that we have every friend of Liberty Counsel Action on board with this campaign calling on the President to take action.

P.S. Radical forces are rallying their base to stop President Trump and members of Congress from doing what we elected them to do.
