According to reports, a divided federal appeals panel has upheld a New
York school district's right to refuse access to  school facilities to
an after-school religious  program.

                 "In The Good News Club v. Milford School District,
                 98-9494, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
                 found that the group's teachings were
                 'quintessentially religious' and were thus barred
                 under the First Amendment's doctrine of the
                 separation of church and state."
