Bronx church tests First Amendment guarantees before Supreme Court, UPI

“Will a conservative majority on the U.S. Supreme Court succeed in putting God back into the public schools, at least when classes aren’t being held?” the news agency UPI asked.

At issue in the case is whether government can ban worship services of a Bronx congregation at a school property, to enforce the constitutional separation of church and state.

In 1994, the Bronx Household of Faith church applied to use space in the Anne Cross Mersereau Middle School in The Bronx for its Sunday morning worship service. The issue triggered numerous challenges and it is now up to the justices to decide on the case.
