Should churches pay attention to organizations like the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF)? Based on a recent court ruling, the answer is emphatically yes.
The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), which has been following a court challenge brought by FFRF, reported today that a federal court in Wisconsin, “responding to a lawsuit brought by the FFRF…has ruled the clergy housing exclusion unconstitutional for clergy providing their own homes.”
ECFA says the decision is “sending shock waves across the religious community.” For more details, read their news release.
