Officials Warn Rink Against 'Christian Skate' Night

POSTED: 2:00 pm CDT June 23, 2006

ACCORD, N.Y. -- A roller rink in a small upstate New York community has been warned by state officials about its advertisement for Christian skating on Sundays.

The Division of Human Rights told the owners of Skate Time 209 in Ulster County that it might be violating the state's anti-discrimination laws.

The rink's Sunday afternoon "Christian skate" program features contemporary Christian music.

Owner Len Bernardo said the idea was to play wholesome music. He said no one has been denied access to the event, which he compared to a teen night promotion.

Bernardo has changed the name of the Sunday afternoon skating session to "spiritual skate."
