The Alliance Stands in the Gap to Protect Right of Senior Citizens to Worship: "For twenty years, senior citizens have used the facility for social programs and recreational events. A group of Christian seniors had also gathered -- without government interference -- at the center to sing gospel songs and hear the Word of God from a retired pastor. These seniors also quietly say a word of thanks to the Lord when they receive their meals at the center. All prayers and participation in the worship service are voluntary -- no one is coerced into praying or attending.

Then things changed. In August 2003, the city of Balch Springs enacted a new policy that stated that all mealtime prayers, gospel music, and 'religious messages' cease immediately. No other group was censored, only Christians."
