U.S. top court to hear key religious rights case involving Missouri church

U.S. Supreme Court justices appeared sympathetic to a church that sued Missouri for denying it state taxpayer funds for a playground project in a closely watched religious rights case involving public money going to religious entities. Conservative and liberal justices on the nine-member court indicated that Trinity Lutheran Church in Columbia, Missouri should be allowed to apply for the state grant program that helps nonprofit groups buy rubber playground surfaces made from recycled tires. The church runs a preschool and daycare center. The case, which tests the limits of religious freedom under the U.S. Constitution, is considered one of the most important to come before the court during its current term.
