The FAA / Chicago O'Hare Plan to
Desecrate Holy Ground

Plans to expand the Chicago airport, the "O'Hare Modernization Program", have been approved by the state legislature, Chicago Mayor Dailey and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The plans will exhume the entire St. Johannes cemetery, a private cemetery belonging to St. John's Church of Christ. The cemetery has been protected by state religious laws, but when church members invoked them, the legislature amended the laws to allow the seizure and destruction of any cemetery.

The Becket Fund represents St. John's Church of Christ and St. Johannes cemetery.
