Judge rules for churches in fight over FEMA hurricane benefits

“The court has set the clock ticking on FEMA’s irrational religious discrimination policy,” said Daniel Blomberg, a lawyer for Becket, a nonprofit religious liberty law firm representing three churches.

“It can’t come soon enough.”

U.S. District Judge Keith P. Ellison ruled against FEMA’s request to delay the case until the end of the month.

The churches, Harvest Family Church, Hi-Way Tabernacle and Rockport First Assembly of God, all were impacted by Hurricane Harvey in August.

Nothing wrong appealing to law.

But when they had stretched him out for the whips, Paul said to the centurion who was standing by, "Is it lawful for you to flog a man who is a Roman citizen and uncondemned?" - Acts 22:25

“The churches are not seeking special treatment; they are seeking a fair shake. And they need to know now whether they have any hope of counting on FEMA or whether they will continue to be excluded entirely from these FEMA programs,” the complaint said.

The churches are in Cypress, Cleveland and Rockport, Texas, all in the path of Harvey. Their buildings all were damaged in the flood, with roofs, walls and vehicles gone.
