A National Win For Our Heritage And Religious Freedom

Pensacola Cross Will Stand!  The federal appeals court for Florida reversed itself and held that a cross in the city park that has been there for over 70 years without complaint until an atheist filed suit did not have to be removed.  The reversal occurred because, after the court first had said it had to be removed, the case was appealed to the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court sent it back for reconsideration after it upheld the constitutionality of a large cross in a Maryland park, noting that taking down a cross in such circumstances could be seen as hostility to religion.  Thanks for your faithful prayers for this situation!

Supreme Court Can Protect Religious Schools: 

CPCF Joins Supreme Court Brief Supporting Religious Organizations.  CPCF’s legal team filed a brief in the Supreme Court in support of two Catholic schools in California who had been sued by their former teachers who deviated from the schools’ teaching and practice.  The ability of churches and church schools to decide, without challenge, who should be their employees is called the “ministerial exception” doctrine, and CPCF’s legal team argued that the doctrine should apply to any organization with a religious purpose and to any employee that the religious organization decides needs to share the organization’s faith and practice if its mission is to be best accomplished.
