According to Chicago Public Radio's City Room, Sherman filed papers in court to prevent the state of Illinois from giving $1 million to Pilgrim Baptist Church to help them rebuild following a fire.
As far as I'm concerned, there is nothing wrong with anyone wanting to rebuild their church. However, the money simply cannot come from the state. Remember a little thing called separation of church and state?
So here we go again with atheists having to pressure the government to obey the law. I am glad for Sherman and his dedication to preserving the separation of church and state for all Americans.
