Church and State

In Kentucky, there is another case raising the controversial issue of separation of church and state.

For 17 years, Baptist ministers have been meeting with public school students during their lunch breaks in Bullitt County Kentucky. But last month, ministers were stopped from having lunch with the students after some staff members expressed concerns.

Some ministers are calling the move "Anti-Christian discrimination."

Public schools cannot prohibit or endorse religious activities, but students can initiate such activities before or after school or during specified club activity periods. Elsewhere in the nation, policies to keep people or groups off campus have sparked debate.
