Georgia County Revokes Permission for Christian Ministry
Vision Warriors, defended by the American Center for Law and Justice, filed the complaint in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
It accuses the Cherokee County board of commissioners, including Harry Johnston, Steve West, Ray Gunnin, Benny Carter and Corey Ragsdale, of "deliberate and purposeful deprivation of plaintiff's rights under the United States Constitution."
ACLJ said Vision Warriors was assured at least twice by the county's zoning officials, including in writing, that it's plans were approved.
"Based on these assurances, Vision Warriors went through with the [$750,000] sale of the property and began operating its ministry to individuals working to overcome addiction in the long-term," ACLJ said.
Cherokee County went for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election by nearly 50 points.
