you really shouldnt skate at a church. I'm not saying that for religious reasons I think Jesus tears it up.
But...churches have minimal amount of funding. Skating busts up curbs and causes repairs that would have been ordinarily unnecessary that the church could better use for other purposes.
My dad is always lecturing me about how skate boarders should stay out of the city parks because it costs the parks department tons of cash to replace curbs/hand rails/etc. (hes the natural resource manager for the city). I say whatever...the city has a ton of cash, if us as taxpayers are going to pay for repairs, it may as well be to the damage we did ourselves.
although, today IS opposite day.
Ah hah! hush that RUSS, everybody move to the back of the BUSS!
