    As long as they can claim tax exempt status, religion will always be a burgeoning industry!

    Like P.T. Barnum used to say “There’s a sucker born every minute!”

    Tim – I think you meant “The Board of New Hope” to be “The Board of New Life.” :)

    Are there any church-state separation, tax, or non-discrimination issues arising from their use of a city building for religious services?

    Glenn – You’ll find this to be a common practice in many metro areas. As long as the church group pays the standard fees for the use of the facilities, it is not an issue. By comparison, the use of taxpayer-owned facilities in Philadephia used by BSA after the judgement of discrimination could no longer ride for $1/yr.
