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.

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

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.

WND also reported that separately, three other churches wrote to the White House asking the president to intervene in the situation.

The nonprofit legal group First Liberty said it had written directly to the White House on behalf of its clients, Trinity Church, Church on the Rock Katy and Grace Community Church.

‘”This is a discriminatory policy started in the past and continued through the Obama administration,” said Chelsey Youman, counsel for First Liberty. “The same religious institutions that are tirelessly serving their communities in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma are being told by the federal government they don’t deserve the nation’s help.”
