Portland School Board Agrees: No choirs at the Grotto

PORTLAND, Ore. — By a margin of 4-3, the Portland Public School Board has weighed in on a proposition that would have allowed choirs to continue singing at The Grotto during their annual Festival of Lights events.

The district decided to ban choirs from singing there based on a complaint by the Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation.  They suggested that because the Grotto was a Catholic shrine, having public school kids sing there would be possible legal ramifications.

Board member Mike Rosen was one of those in the minority.  He spent a few minutes with KXL’s Lars Larson on Wednesday.
