New York Drops Objection to Skating Rink Ads

The New York Division of Human Rights has dropped its objection to Skate Time 209's "Christian Skate". The Division had notified the privately owned rink that the special skate periods, which featured Christian music, were "evidence of discrimination." The Division also sent a letter to the Ulster County Press maintaining it had violated New York's Human Rights Law by publishing the ad.  Skate Time 209 has now renamed its event "Spiritual Skate". Read Howard Friedman's blogpost from Religion Clause on the original situation here.
