Here's the story from Reuters ...and another with analysis from the First Amendment Center ; a U.S. appeals court judge has ruled that a California library can bar a religious group from holding worship services in library meeting rooms. The dispute revolves around an evangelical Christian church's attempt to hold religious meetings in rooms of a Contra Costa County library in an effort to attract those who might not otherwise attend services. When the Antioch, CA library staff did not allow meetings because of their prohibition against religious services, the religious group sued alleging discrimination.
