should state school halls be rented out to bible rednecks

I reckon Principals should refuse to rent out school premises and resources to christian groups who profess anti-gay rhectoric and those who refuse should be reminded of current anti-discrimination legislation in their states

I personally believe that schools shouldn't rent their property to any church, pro- or anti-gay.  Obviously there are those that disagree with that, as the practice continues week after week in some communities.

Our church meets in a school cafeteria at present.

There are quite a few others who are far less accepting of GLBTIQSO people renting space in other schools.

I'm ambivalent: on the one hand, I'm not keen on having government property used for religious activity. On the other hand, the schools need the cash and the churches need the space. I wish there were better solutions for both the schools and the churches.
