Court signals hope for housing allowance
from Baptist Press
Supporters of the ministerial housing allowance should be hopeful about a federal appeals court's anticipated ruling on the 60-year-old provision, a religious liberty lawyer said after oral arguments in the case. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago appeared on Sept. 9 to lean toward either dismissing the case because the allowance's challengers lack legal standing or upholding the allowance as constitutional, a lawyer with the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty said.
