News :: Lee’s Summit Lawyers Bring Religious Freedom Case Before the Supreme Court

At issue is a Missouri Constitutional section called the  “Blaine Amendment,” adopted in 1875, which states that money from the public treasury cannot, directly or indirectly, go to aid a church, pastor, or religious entity. 

Based on a principle of strict separation of church and state, similar clauses appear in 38 other state constitutions, giving this case its national significance.
