"For two decades, NYC has been tangling with a Christian Evangelical church about whether the Bronx Household of Faith can hold services in public schools during non-school hours. Today, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, a federal appeals court, ruled that the city can in fact restrict religious groups from using public schools for services.
The NYCLU’s executive director Donna Lieberman applauded the ruling, saying, “Today’s Court of Appeals decision is a victory for religious freedom. Our Constitution gives all New Yorkers the right to worship - or not - as they choose. That vital freedom depends on preserving the separation of church and state.”"

That’s the most twisted bullshit interpretation of “freedom religion” I’ve ever seen.

If a religious organization is paying the agreed upon rent to use a facility, public or not, then they have a right to. If you restrict the use of a facility to a non-religious use, then you are in fact discriminating.

My strong belief is that the use of public facilities by organizations should only have to survive one criteria: is the activity legal. If the activity itself is legal and the organization pays the proper fees to use the facility, then there’s no reason to bar the use of the facility and use allowance should be as content-neutral as possible. Period.

And yes, that means I agree with Mayor de Blasio who actually said “I stand by my belief that a faith organization playing by the same rules as any community nonprofit deserves access. You know, they have to go through the same application process, wait their turn for space, pay the same rent. But I think they deserve access. They play a very, very important role in terms of providing social services and other important community services, and I think they deserve that right.” and if the city no longer wants to provide access to religious institutions, then religious institutions should stop providing free services of any kind that the city does including free food and shelter, unless the person is a member of the parish or organization.

This ruling is complete silliness and calling it a victory for religious freedom is absolutely asinine newspeak bullshit.

Freedom of religion does not mean freedom from religion under all circumstances. People are freaking idiots.

"The tragedy is not that we are alone, but that we cannot be. At times I would give anything in the world to no longer be connected by anything to this universe of men. But I am a part of this universe, and the most courageous thing to do is to accept it and the tragedy at the same time."
