Last week, we posted about our recent case for a church that cares for the homeless. ACLU-PA legal director Witold “Vic” Walczak blogged a more extensive post about the case on national ACLU’s blog. Here’s a small sample:
The Pennsylvania ACLU handles — and always has handled — lots of religious-liberty cases. The cases that attract people’s attention are the ones where we challenge government sponsorship of religion — freedom from government-promoted religion…
But we do an almost equal number of cases on behalf of religious people or groups fighting against government interference — the freedom of religion stuff. And we do a lot of cases for Christians, especially considering there are so many public-interest groups that do cases only for Christians (think of the ACLJ, Alliance Defense Fund, Christian Legal Society, Thomas More Law Center, etc.). While those groups favor only these cases, ACLU still represents Christians and everyone else, and we are always happy to help.
