County ordered to open meeting room to church

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A federal judge has ordered a Contra Costa County library to open its doors to a religious group.

County officials had barred the Faith Center Church Evangelistic Ministries from meeting in the library’s Antioch branch because they said the group violated the library’s prohibition of religious services in its meetings rooms.

But U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White ruled last week that the policy was unconstitutional, since it directed library managers to determine what constitutes religious services when considering applications for the meeting room.

The room is open to public use.
