In Tangipahoa Parish here in Louisiana, the teachers and adminstrators continue to pray in school. This infuriates the ACLU who has continually taken the School Board to court to stop them from praying.
In addition, the ACLU cites a prayer it says was recently given at Amite High School, over a loudspeaker, at an awards banquet. The prayer ended with the words "In Jesus' name we pray," violating the ban; the principal of the school sat silently by.
So, if they didn't say "In Jesus' name" the ACLU wouldn't have had a problem with prayer? I guess it would have been OK if the prayer ended with "In Allah's name."
The ACLU has a solution to this problem: get rid of the people who pray.
"The consent judgment is repeatedly violated by these individuals because they do not believe anything will happen to them," the ACLU said in its Wednesday court filing. "Their refusal to comply with the consent decree should and must result in their removal from society." (emphasis added)
Isn't this the same group that supports criminals? And illegal aliens? So, the American Civil Liberties Union must consider everyone Americans, thus worthy of protection, except Christians.
How do they intend to remove these horrible, vicious offenders from society? By sending them to jail.
Teachers and administrators in Tangipahoa Parish continue to violate a court-imposed school prayer ban, according to the ACLU, which Wednesday asked a federal judge to send them to jail.
Ok, maybe they violate a prayer ban in school. But jail? They are teachers. Wouldn't a fine be an effective punishment, considering the fact that they don't make a lot of money? Unless the ACLU considers these people felons.
