A California court has released a ruling that allows a church to rent a former YMCA building in Thousand Oaks, rejecting arguments from a loosely organized association that the congregation shouldn't be allowed into the community.
It was the Ventura County Superior Court that decided in favor of a nonprofit foundation that bought a former YMCA and then agreed to lease it to Godspeak Calvary Chapel, according to Liberty Counsel.
Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver said: "This is a great ruling by the Ventura County Superior Court in this frivolous lawsuit against a Christian church. It is a violation of the law to welcome a YMCA but refuse a church. The city of Thousand Oaks followed the law, but a small handful of people want the city to violate zoning laws and federal laws to discriminate against the use of the building for religious services. This will not happen."...

Nice looking building, it even looks like a church.
