City tries to prohibit Christians from serving; status of Blaine Amendments and how they affect private schools
This week on Faith on Trial: Eric Rassback, deputy general counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty on the state of the “Little” Blaine Amendments. These are state constitutional amendments that were adopted in the mid to late 19th century after the failure of a proposed federal constitutional amendment that would have prohibited public funds from being used for non-public schools. Then we’ll have Chris Gacek, senior fellow with the Family Research Council who will discuss a proposed amendment to the San Antonio, Texas, city code that would effectively prohibit Christians from elected or appointed positions with the city; echoes of last week’s interview with Pastor Cary Gordon of the Cornerstone World Outreach in Sioux City, Iowa. Tune in: Saturday at 8 a.m.; Sunday at 2 & 7 p.m.; and Monday at 9 p.m. on Iowa Catholic Radio 1150 AM; 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming live on IowaCatholicRadio.com.
