Church puts faith in court
from The Wall Street Journal
A New York City church is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to assert its right to hold religious services in public schools. Lawyers for the Bronx Household of Faith, an evangelical congregation, filed a petition this week asking the Supreme Court to review a June appeals-court ruling that would bar churches from holding worship services on school property. About 60 churches currently use New York City public-school auditoriums and classrooms for worship activities after school hours and on weekends. The arrangement has allowed small, cash-strapped churches to avoid the city's high rents, as the schools charge a nominal fee to cover the costs of custodians and security staff.
