Christians Banned From Meeting Space at Miami Public Library

A tiny church in Miami has been searching for a place to hold Sunday morning services or a Wednesday night Bible study. The church has about ten members – the space did not need to be that large.

So they reached out to the Miami-Dade Public Library System. The church asked about using a meeting room at one of the libraries.

But the congregation was turned down – rejected.

Librarians directed the Christians to the system’s official policy: religious groups are not allowed to use any meeting space in the library.

The American Center for Law and Justice jumped in to the controversy and fired off a letter to the library system – warning that it is unlawful to ban Christians.

What I find especially interesting is that the Miami-Dade Public Library System hosts drag queens, but not Christians.

Some 30 years ago the Supreme Court ruled that the government violates the First Amendment when it denies access to a speaker solely to suppress a point of view. That case involved a public school’s decision to ban a church from using its meeting place.

And ACLJ warned Miami-Dade – that unless their policy is reversed – they’re going to throw the book at them.

Should Christians be allowed to use meeting rooms in a public library?
