A three-judge panel of the 2nd US District Court of Appeals earlier this week heard fresh arguments on worship services in public schools and deemed hesitant to let them continue.
It was the fifth time in 12 years that the court has heard an appeal. Last year, a lower court ruled in favor of the Bronx Household of Faith Church in blocking NYC from enforcing a law barring churches from conducting worship service in public schools after-hours.
The federal appeals court should affirm the lower court ruling and rebuff Mayor Bloomberg’s effort to enforce his secularism.
This question should be asked of the candidates vying to be elected Mayor of NYC in 2013.
Should Christine Quinn, Tom Allon, Adolfo Carrion, et al., be asked to state their position on this issue?
