It is hard to explain in one draft. I was in this one church that has a sociopath and were playing favorites with that guy and anything one in the in crowd. By completing ignoring problems that were caused by them and handing over their hearts desire automatically. When it came to me, they automatically pulled the plug. I have a disability and they would hold me to a higher accountability than others even if they were completely at fault. There wasn’t any accommodations made other than to give me the short end of the strick.
What is your damage and who caused it? Your question makes little sense in the abstract.

Churches have a lot of autonomy. You know the Constitution and the separation of church and state thing....the government does not interfere in internal church matters.

Yes you can.
However, you need a valid reason to sue if you expect to prevail.
No idea if you have a valid reason to sue in large part because your post does not seem to make any sense I can figure out.
Playing favorites does not mean anything particular nor is it a ground to sue necessarily.
Ignoring problems is not a basis for suing on its own.
No idea what 'pulling the plug' means.
Holding individuals to high accountability is what church's do.
