Freedom of speech is DOA in the USA folks.
A federal judge has ruled that nobody at a high school graduation can use religious terms like "prayer" and "Amen."
So, remember that whole thing about "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech..." Well, it looks like judges can do whatever the hell they please.
Fox News reports:
A federal judge has ordered a Texas school district to prohibit public prayer at a high school graduation ceremony.We could go on and one about how crazy this is. We all know that nobody suffers irreparable harm from hearing religious words. This is about drumming Christianity out of this country. It's really that simple.
Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery’s order against the Medina Valley Independent School District also forbids students from using specific religious words including “prayer” and “amen.”
The ruling was in response to a lawsuit filed by Christa and Danny Schultz. Their son is among those scheduled to participate in Saturday’s graduation ceremony. The judge declared that the Schultz family and their son would “suffer irreparable harm” if anyone prayed at the ceremony.
I'm hoping this high school takes a stand. I want everyone there including students, parents, teachers, administrators, janitors, lunch ladies, the librarian, and heck yeah even the hall monitors to say any and all religious words (including "prayer" and "Amen") as often as they can until they pass out. And when they wake up start over.
The stupid judge said that anyone affiliated with the school district not obeying his edict that they'd be found in contempt of court and face incarceration. That's right. Incarceration. That means...yeah...in America they're now sending people to jail for mentioning God. Well, make 'em do it.
Maybe we should all get in a bus and head down there. I've got a 24 pack of Diet Cokes. That'll get me at least to Delaware. And then we can all crash on Jen Fulwiler's couch in Texas. Don't worry, it's a sectional so there's plenty of room.
