Gasp! I can see why people would be so upset! I think they should consider a life sentence for such vile behavior! This is a quote directly from the article:
“The criminal charges, which carry up to a $5,000 fine and a six-month jail term, originated with a Jan. 28 incident in which Mr. Lay, a deacon at a local Baptist church, asked Mr. Freeman to offer mealtime prayers at a lunch for school employees and booster-club members who had helped with a school field-house project.”
The gall of these people to give thanks at mealtime to God! What would our founders and constitutional authors think? I’m glad you asked. They would be absolutely outraged that the effort to ban God has become so common in this country. They built the constitution on the understanding and belief we would always be grounded in Christian principles. Without this grounding they knew that the countries’ future would be at risk.
The “separation” of church and state has been so warped by the ACLU that these types of outrageous assaults on individual liberty don’t generate absolute revolt against these organizations that promote this garbage.
This is just another argument to get the “public” out of education and put it in private hands. This way people can choose their schools based on their beliefs.
Is praying to God worthy of 5 years in prison? Are we insane?
