Free Speech... unless you're a Christian

Today the infamous 9th circuit of appeals ruled that a Christian group can't hold prayer meetings in a San Fransisco public library.

Rather than authorize a standard set of meeting room reservation requirements, the 9th circuit decided to ignore the 1st amendment and disallow Christians their right to use a public space. It's clear that if it was any other religious organization (especially Muslims) the federal courts would never rule against their ability to worship.

Further, the court claims to support the sketchy "separation of church and state;" not to stop the church from controlling state decisions, but instead they are using the state to stop the worshipping of the church.

Only in San Fransisco - and only from the 9th circuit.
