A portion of the stimulus bill reads: "Grants awarded under this section shall be for the purpose of modernizing, renovating, and repairing institutions of higher education facilities that are primarily used for instruction and research.’

“Funds may not be used for ‘modernization, renovation, or repair of facilities -(i) used for sectarian instruction, religious worship, or a school or department of divinity; or (ii) in which a substantial portion of the functions of the facilities are subsumed in a religious mission.’”

What does this mean for Christianity?

It means that educational institutions permitting Bible groups or worship activities or anything related to the Christian faith will be absented funds.
