School hires hall to TV church

Wed 25 Aug 2004 In: New Zealand Daily News

Students at Wellington High are sickened by their school prostituting itself to Destiny by hiring out its hall to the television church at weekends. Over 600 of them have signed a petition urging principal Prue Kelly to stop hiring the hall to Destiny because they promote "hate and discrimination". Students also say that anti-homophobia posters have been ripped off the walls by church members. Principal Kelly will meet with students this Friday to discuss their concerns. Destiny pastor Campbell Bond says he doesn't know if churchgoers touched the posters, but if they were in the hall then they would have been removed – and reinstated when the church left.
