Our legal team took action yesterday against the city of Duncanville, TX for barring a Hispanic Church from taking possession of the building they had purchased. Pastor Ramorez’s Templo Bautista Nuevo Jerusalen purchased a building on Main Street and complied with a multitude of requirements in order to receive a Special Utilities Permit. The City Council then denied the church occupancy of its building. We reminded the City of Duncanville that one person’s hostility towards churches, for whatever discriminatory reason, cannot take away the constitutional right of a church to gather and worship.
