Supreme Court to Decide if Churches Are Eligible for State Grants to Renovate Their Property

On Friday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a church/state case that could poke a large hole in the wall of separation between them.

It involves the Trinity Church of Columbia (Missouri). The church runs a Christian preschool and they wanted to renovate the playground.

That example is hypothetical, but a real example just happened in Pakistan, where a bill to ban child marriages has been blocked by Muslim extremists.
