Christian group suing Plainfield over public meeting room policy
A Christian advocacy group filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday against Plainfield, calling village policy prohibiting religious groups from using a public community room "unconstitutional." Liberty Counsel, a Florida-based nonprofit, filed the suit Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Chicago.

Sorry Liberty Counsel, I, as a life long and baptised Christian living in Plainfield, completely disagree with your misguided act to sue.
There are plenty of non-government places for you to hold your meetings. There are christian owned businesse in the area who will open their doors for you.
My opinion is that all religious groups remain out of government buildings.
What do others think about this situation? I'm interested to hear from others.

2000 years ago I held most of my meetings outside in the freash air. Except for that one time when I went to the temple and caused a big scene with the moneychangers.
I have an idea, why don't you meet at one of your own homes? Then we can have unlimited chat time!
