NYC mayor says no more religious groups meeting in the city's vacant school buildings

Pastors and their congregants took to the streets of New York on Thursday to protest and to pray for Mayor Michael Bloomberg to reverse a ban on religious groups' use of public schools for worship service, scheduled to go into effect February 12.

As long as the religious groups are paying to use the building, I see nothing wrong with it. Just so the religious part doesn't spill over into what the school teaches.

Is he meaning all religious groups, or just Christian groups? Do other groups utilize the schools after hours and he's denying religious groups even though they conform to the same rules? Yes, I'm implying discrimination. No, I'm not making accusations, I'm asking. I've not heard much on the story other than headlines.
