Group sues over county’s funding for historic churches

New Jersey Hills Media Group reports:

A Madison man has taken issue with some of Morris County’s historic preservation grants going to the preservation of churches and other houses of worship — and is pursuing that issue in court.

The county is the subject of a lawsuit filed by David Steketee, of Ferndale Road, Madison, and the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation on Dec. 1 in state Superior Court in Morristown, asking the courts to bar Morris County from presenting historic preservation grants to churches and other houses of worship. The group’s stated purpose is to “promote the constitutional principle of separation of state and church.”
