City agency halts church services at public housing unit
A Dallas church that has held Sunday worship service at a public housing apartment complex for the elderly for 14 years has been ordered to stop.

Dallas Housing Authority president MaryAnn Russ told the Dallas Morning News that the church services violate separation of church and state and the agency's contract with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which funds public housing programs.

"Dallas Housing Authority president
MaryAnn Russ told the Dallas Morning News that the church services violate separation of church and state and the agency's contract with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which funds public housing programs."

What separation of church and state? Would that be the part about not having Congress making any law with regard to an establishment of religion, or the part about no prohibition of the free exercise of it?

Surely it is the role of Government, Local Government and civil servants to serve the public. If it is the will of a group of citizens to meet together in a public building to read poetry, view a play about sodomy (as so many are) or meet for a religious service. Then it is the role of the authorities to ensure the toilets are clean the chairs are put out and the bins emptied and hall swept afterward. It is not the role of the State to decide what the citizens can meet for or can't meet for.

Now, that is something to happen in the great state of Texas! I know that Indian Hills has provided services at the various retirement homes in Lincoln, Nebraska, and I believe without complaint.

It is indeed strange that religion is allowed in prisons and the military and both these types of organizations are completely run by some government entity. (Yes, I guess there might be a few private jails around?) So, this dizzy dame doesn't have much to stand on.

It's funny that many think that the words "Separation of church and state" are in the Constitution. What this government agency is doing is actually a violation of the Constitution. Here's what it actually says, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

What an insane and psychotic dame Russ is. If I was that church I would have told Russ to shove it and that the church would continue to hold worship services at that public housing apartment complex and that there is nothing that she could do to stop it.
