    McHenry County, IL – A resident of the SilverTrees Apartment complex in Richmond, Illinois, is ready to bring in the New Year with a Bible study that she has been trying to have for more than seven years. On November 9, Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to the McHenry County Housing Authority on behalf of a public housing resident, asking that she be allowed to use the SilverTrees community room for a Bible study and to announce it in the community newsletter. On November 19, the Housing Authority agreed to the demands and has now taken appropriate action to ensure that this unequal treatment will not happen again.

    I agree that this refusal was unconstitutional and am amazed that this went on for so long. If any other tenant group could use that room for an activity it must have been made available for Bible study. This is an optional activity not forced on anyone who didn't want to attend.
