Posted on 01/20/2012 8:16:13 PM PST by Morgana
Because of a courts ruling against one particular small church in the Bronx, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has now decreed that come February 12, 2012, all churches and fellowships meeting in public schools 160 in total - have to be evicted.
This terrible decision against religious freedom could impact the souls of thousands of people in New York City. And if this precedent is allowed to stand, the cancer could spread to other cities as well.
These churches generally have great relationships with the community. They provide services and revenue for the city. But it seems that is trumped by the ABC principle - ABC as in Anything But Christ.
This case goes back several years. In the name of the separation of church and state, the educational establishment of New York City decided that churches could not meet in schools for worship. They could meet in schools for discussions or sports events, but not divine services.
So one church, the Bronx Household of Faith, whose pastor was mentored by Francis Schaeffer, filed suit with the help of the Alliance Defense Fund, the Christian legal group that Dr. Kennedy and a handful of other leaders founded. As long as the litigation continued, that church (and other churches) have been able to meet in public schools.
Greg Baylor an attorney with the Alliance Defense Fund told Truth in Action Ministries, Unfortunately, even though they had a temporary injunction that allowed them to meet in the public schools, the New York City education officials kept fighting them in the courts. They were insistent upon their objective of keeping out the churches.

I want to barf.
NCY is a hell hole.
And now it is satan’s hell hole.
Bloomberg is a scum. That has been evident for a long time.
we will implement WMD principle
So here is the question? Are sports stadiums the same as school auditoriums? If there are some that are city, or state owned and one player openly takes a knee in prayer, what is the difference if is 1, 1,000, or one hundred thousand?
They keep pushing the buttons. They’ll hit the wrong one someday.
I’m Jewish and I think that Bloomberg hates Jews, too. His cozying up to the Moslems in New York is nothing less than stupid pandering and asskissing.
His ego is so bloated that he thinks he is God and everyone else should bow to his stupidity.
Jews need to support Christians against this “antiChrist” poseur of a mayor.
And if anyone is going to bow down, Mr. Mayor, it is you, in order to kiss my conservative, Jewish butt. So pucker up schmuck, and plant one.
He can’t do this. It’s unconstitutional I believe.
I would hope so.
Will this keep schools from setting aside special areas so moslem kids can worship their moon god?
No way. The Mohammedans will be allowed to do whatever they want.
