    Texas Seminaries Victorious in 'Landmark' Religious Freedoms Case
    OneNewsNow.com reports that "seminaries in Texas have won what is being called a landmark religious freedoms case. Last week's unanimous ruling by the Texas Supreme Court overturned two lower-court opinions and a Texas law that gave the state power over seminaries and their training of pastors and ministry leaders. Liberty Legal Institute (LLI) filed a lawsuit on behalf of Tyndale Theological Seminary in 1999, after the state's higher education coordinating board threatened to fine the seminary thousands of dollars as punishment for issuing theological degrees without seeking government approval of its curriculum, professors, and board."

    To all who love Liberty, especially the Baptists:

    It seems that the "separation of church and state" are alive and well in Texas at least.
