FFRF puts clamps to ministerial program

On Jan. 27, FFRF Staff Attorney Patrick Elliott wrote Chancellor Curtis Ivery of the Wayne County Community College District, which has campuses in and around Detroit, to request an end to the publicly funded district’s Ministerial Leadership Academy Studies Certificate program. Classes include “Introduction to Christian Education,” which taught students “to become a strong Christian witness.” The “Personal Relationship and the Word” class is described as helping students “develop stronger Bible based relationships with God.” The district agreed (see response above) that the program violates the U.S. and Michigan constitutions.
