Sometimes a life of youth ministry calls you to get involved in things much bigger than yourself. Such is the case of our long-time friend, Jeremy Del Rio in his leading the charge against Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s decision to kick churches out of public schools.
Check out this debate Jeremy participated in tonight, it gives you the flavor of what he’s up against. (Embed isn’t available) I’m biased because Jeremy is my friend. But he clearly won this debate. While Ms. Lieberman made little jabs and laid out a tired argument, Jeremy dropped bombs she never saw coming.
It seems the scales are starting to tip against Mayor Bloomberg’s decision. This editorial from Martin Bashir brings out all the valid points, essentially calling the ban religious bigotry.
What do you think? Are churches who rent school facilities on weekends at risk of giving preferential treatment to the church?
