Eminent Domain: Church to be Bulldozed for Condos

Hugh Hewitt discussed this case with John Eastman today on the radio. The city of Long Beach, California, voted to condemn a Baptist church in order to turn the land over to condo developers.

The Long Beach Press-Telegram characterizes the condos as "an affordable housing development of condominiums and town homes."

Eastman, who represents the church, says the city has not proven the taking of the property is for "public use" and added that the condemnation violates freedom of religion.

Much more here, including an interview with Eastman.

If this is allowed to happen to the Filipino Baptist Fellowship, it can also happen to my church...and yours.
