Court: N.Y. can block Sunday worship services in public schools
The city can ban Sunday religious worship services at public schools that otherwise might become state-sponsored Christian churches on weekends, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday in a decision likely to affect dozens of schools where services are conducted each week.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan overturned a lower court decision and rejected arguments that the Supreme Court had opened the way for worship services to be conducted at schools.

A three-judge panel said in a 2-1 decision that the city Board of Education "had a strong basis to be wary that permitting religious worship services in schools, and thus effectively allowing schools to be converted into churches on Sunday, would be found to violate the establishment clause" of the Constitution, which bars Congress from making a law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise of one. ...

Of course you do, Jim. But there was a time when the one-room schoolhouse became a church meeting house on Sunday. Funny thing, it wasn't unconstitutional then. We more enlightened now? The real problem is the existence of state-run schools.

Using school buildings on Sundays, well isn't that kind of the common practice across the country? Isn't that a good use of resources, and makes church available within neighborhoods?
