All across the country a large number of new churches that are waiting on owning a building or a property, are renting out school facilities for Sunday services. So, it is no surprise that a recent ruling by a panel of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals that may bar any religious worship in New York City schools has Christians in the U.S. watching carefully.
In the last 10 years of being a pastor and church leader, Kerr has been a part of five churches that have held Sunday services inside schools. He said he was disappointed to hear about the ruling which determined that NYC schools that allow church services appear to promote a particular faith.
‚ÄúIt seems to be a biased ruling,‚ÄĚ Kerr said. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a bias against a church when other groups are allowed.‚ÄĚ...
This ruling should prohibit schools from being used as a mosque, Mormon temple (or whatever) or perhaps even a meeting place for Free Masons. It looks like an excellent ruling to me, as long as it is applied to all religious groups and not just Christians.
