There is a town in Michigan where only practicing Christians are allowed to buy or inherit real estate. The bylaw has been around since the 1940s, first passed to prevent Jews from buying, and was strengethened in 1986. Non-Christians can rent. The bylaw is being challenged in Court. Although this bylaw is clealy discriminatory, my initial reaction is its ok in this context. If a group of people want to create their own community, they should be allowed to do so. But I thought I would put it out here to hear other thoughts. The article is a good read, btw, as it highlights the issues people are facing as the population has grown more progressive but the bylaw has not.
