ISSUES INVOLVING THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE
There is much confusion today about the separation of church and state, what it means, how it is applied, and what our founding fathers intended. The courts are awash in lawsuits over the proper boundaries of the state in matters of religion. Such cases may involve religious practices in public schools; religious curriculum in public schools; tax funding of religious schools or religious social service agencies; public display of crosses, monuments containing the Ten Commandments, or Christmas displays, and a wide variety of similar issues.
The Church State Council believes that healthy boundaries between church and state are vital to the preservation of religious liberty. We have filed briefs in important cases before the United States Supreme Court, and other courts.
We are available to consult with individuals, organizations and media, on existing conflicts or potential conflicts over the separation of church and state, and can provide legal assistance where deemed appropriate.
