I received this in an email. Snopes says it is true.
This is a statement that was read over the PA system at the football game at Roane County High School , Kingston , Tennessee , by school Principal, Jody McLeod
“It has always been the custom at Roane County High School football games, to say a prayer and play the National Anthem, to honor God and Country.”
Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told that saying a Prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law. As I understand the law at this time, I can use this public facility to approve of sexual perversion and call it “an alternate life style,” and if someone is offended, that’s OK.
I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity, by dispensing condoms and calling it, “safe sex….” If someone is offended, that’s O K.
I can even use this public facility to present the merits of killing an unborn baby as a “viable means of birth control.” If someone is offended, no problem…
I can designate a school day as “Earth Day” and involve students in activities to worship religiously and praise the goddess “Mother Earth” and call it “ecology”.
I can use literature, videos and presentations in the classroom that depicts people with strong, traditional Christian convictions as “simple minded” and “ignorant” and call it “enlightenment”.
However, if anyone uses this facility to honor GOD and to ask HIM to Bless this event with safety and good sportsmanship, then Federal Case Law is violated.
This appears to be inconsistent at best, and at worst, diabolical.
Apparently, we are to be tolerant of everything and anyone, except GOD and HIS Commandments.
Nevertheless , as a school principal, I frequently ask staff and students to abide by rules with which they do not necessarily agree. For me to do otherwise would be inconsistent at best, and at worst, hypocritical… I suffer from that affliction enough unintentionally. I certainly do not need to add an intentional transgression.
For this reason, I shall “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s,” and refrain from praying at this time..
“However, if you feel inspired to honor, praise and thank GOD and ask HIM, in the name of JESUS, to Bless this event, please feel free to do so. As far as I know, that’s not against the law—-yet.”
One by one, the people in the stands bowed their heads, held hands with one another and began to pray.
They prayed in the stands.. They prayed in the team huddles. They prayed at the concession stand and they prayed in the Announcer’s Box!
The only place they didn’t pray was in the Supreme Court of the United States of America- the Seat of “Justice” in the “one nation, under GOD.”
Somehow, Kingston , Tennessee Remembered what so many have forgotten. We are given the Freedom OF Religion, not the Freedom FROM Religion. Praise GOD that HIS remnant remains!
JESUS said, “If you are ashamed of ME before men, then I will be ashamed of you before MY FATHER..”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:
Those who can’t handle the truth,
try to silence those who speak it.
The Ten Commandments:
God’s Version vs. the New World Order’s Version
God vs. Satan
I also received this in an email a couple of months ago. I left a comment on another thread but will post here as well.
Thank you, God, for your good and faithful servant that we all know as RedPill.
Thank you, RedPill, for your knowledge and your kind thoughts. We appreciate you, Patriot! God Bless You!
I love the way he put that. I would have prayed to. We need to re-instate the God option into our schools.
Thank you, Ga.Peach. I appreciate your kind words.
I thank God for you, too. This is a team effort. And we are on the winning team. Even if our team appears to be behind at halftime, we already know that we win in the end, so the more our team appears to be behind, the more excited we get because the comeback is going to be that much better!
And here are the links for each of those…
Who cares what the socialists think? M1 is not prejudiced. Semper Fi.
I don’t pray for the Ten Commandments. I pray for “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.
When it comes to the Founders and the Constitution, David Barton knows orders of magnitude more than Jon Stewart.
Jon Stewart threw every straw man (that his staff gave him on note cards) that he could at David Barton, and Barton knocked every single one of those straw men down. Barton has spent decades studying thousands of primary source documents. Stewart has spent minutes, possibly hours, studying the note cards his staff gave him. It was no contest. Every time Stewart threw a false accusation at Barton, Barton countered with the truth. And every time, Stewart would interrupt Barton’s answer. Stewart could only crack a joke or change the subject; he couldn’t have a straight-up discussion of the truth.
I would love to see a similar discussion between David Barton and “Constitutional Law” lecturer Barack Obama.
