A woman in Grand Rapids, Michigan is facing possible charges from the state Department of Civil Rights for expressing her Christian faith, not in the public square but in church!
The 31 year-old woman has been formally cited for the crime of "discrimination" in an alleged violation of the Fair Housing Act by discriminating against those of other faiths when she posted a note on her church bulletin board for simple seeking a "Christian roommate."
Even though it should be obvious that her private advertisement in a church is well within her legal and constitutional rights, she now needs legal help to avoid punishment.
If there was ever any question in one's mind that Christianity is a target of our culture, this incident should erase all doubts. This single woman was simply seeking a roommate to share expenses. She is not a landlord, an apartment manger or property owner. Does she not have any freedom of association or religious liberty rights anymore?
Apparently, a court will now have to answer this question because the government in Michigan can't seem to see her rights through the foggy haze of political correctness.
