Watch the City Council proceedings from last night – especially the funding of the Black Church project. First their is a line of Pastor’s and citizens begging for the money. Then find out what Alderman Stearns and Lower really said before the vote.
This was a project thrown together without even exploring private funding. The Pastor’s indicated more than one that God called them to do this project. That’s all great and probably the only hope some of the teens have, but it is illegal for taxpayers to fund religious activities.
Start watching around 20 minutes.
