Americans United, allies urge federal appeals court to rehear case challenging religiously based hiring bias

Americans United for Separation of Church and State: “Americans United for Separation of Church and State and allied groups have asked a federal appellate court to reconsider a decision dealing with religious bias in hiring at publicly funded ‘faith-based’ charities. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled recently that World Vision, an evangelical Christian relief agency, had the right to fire workers who hold views that conflict with the agency’s religious viewpoint.”
