I am still baffled that groups claim something related to the Bible or God is somehow unconstitutional? What is even more striking is how Christians and public officials alike buckle from liberal groups as soon as they make that claim. I don’t embrace the public school systems but considering another case of groups from outside the state, nonetheless the district claim something like a statute violates the Constitution because it has Scripture written on it? http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/09/28/georgia-high-schools-statue-ignites-ire-atheist-groups/
First why buckle to the smallest majority from afar off? Second where are those with a backbone to say “fine bring your money and your lawsuit” and stand your ground. Emerson vs. Board of Education is where they come up with it being unconstitutional, but that “wall of separation” is still not defined. I would like to see a challenge, I pray for a group to challenge these godless individual’s claims. The Supreme Court needs to set a clear line once and for all, which will dictate the law from this point forward, and as that statute in Georgia states, “If God be for us, who can be against us?” So make these meddling legal novices come up with something besides the same cadence.
The first amendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”
So it doesn’t say we can’t have Christian related items ingrained into public locations, state or federal funded, it says the Government cannot make a law establishing religion, or PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF. History lesson for atheist. The Quakers came to the new land to escape the Church of England which was used as a power base for the royalty. It was heretical to be anything but a member, it was illegal to practice any other religion. SO let’s pray for this to go to the Supreme Court and once and for all see these types of intolerant hypocrites silenced. So, saying I cannot have a monument with a Christian slogan is violating my Constitutional rights and practice of religion. Until then I suspect we will continue to see Christians persecuted, belittled and ran out of public view.
