Atheists’ lawsuit is financial setback for National Baptist Convention
An atheist group’s lawsuit has halted plans to provide $65,000 in Kansas City taxpayer dollars for September’s National Baptist Convention in Kansas City



... Miles had been counting on a $65,000 grant from Kansas City tourism tax dollars for the National Baptist Convention in Kansas City, Sept. 5-9.
