Church Sues Over Denial of Use Permit

This is from religionclause.blogspot.com which you can find here:

“According to Saturday’s Fort Worth Star Telegram, earlier this month the 75-member Now Faith Deliverance Temple filed a state court lawsuit against the Pantego, Texas Town Council after the Council denied the church a special use permit.  The permit would have allowed the congregation to continue to operate in the building to which it relocated 6 months earlier.  Apparently the Town had received complaints from neighbors about noise levels at the church.  The non-denominational African-American church charges that the Town Council has a history of denying permits to religious groups whose members are racial or religious minorities. Last November, a mosque faced a similar refusal.”
