THERE'S NOT A LAW AGAINST THAT YET!
I share here a statement
attributed to High School Principal, Jody McLoud.
She read this statement over the PA system at a football game at Roane County
High School, Kingston, Tennessee....September 1, 2000.
Her words act a reminder of the recent rulings
the U. S. Supreme Court and
other Federal Courts have made favoring an humanistic, liberal,
atheistic bias that is being foisted on the American people
through the efforts of a small minority of very vocal people
whose stated agenda is to delete any reference to 'God' from the
public Life of the American people,
even though it is clear that most Americans do not reject
representations or references to the basic Judeo-Christian
philosophical context within which the Laws of the Land were
Americans clearly do not want to be told how or what to worship....
or that they must or must not worship.
They also do not want to give up the Constitutional Right that
clearly states that among the Freedoms being protected is
Freedom of Worship.
Jody McLoud begins this way.
'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.
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 lifestyle,"
and if someone is offended, that's OK.
I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity, by dispensing condoms
calling it, "safe sex." If someone is offended, that's OK.
to present the merits of killing an unborn baby,
as a "viable means of birth control." If someone is offended,
as, "Earth Day" and involve students in activities to worship
religiously and praise the goddess, "Mother Earth," and call it "ecology."
videos and presentations in the classroom that depict people with
strong, traditional Christian convictions as, "simple minded"
"ignorant" and call it, "enlightenment."
and to ask Him to bless this event with safety and good
Federal Case Law is violated.
Apparently, we are to be tolerant of everything and anyone,
God and His Commandments.
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.
certainly do not need to add an intentional transgression.
and refrain from praying at this time.
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----
held hands with one another, and began to pray.
They prayed at the concession stand, and they prayed in the
Supreme Court of the United States of America -
the seat of "justice" in the "one Nation, under God."
what so many have forgotten.
We are given the Freedom OF Religion,
not the Freedom FROM Religion.
Praise God that His remnant remains!'
To which we can only add
go to the person who sent this to me.
Thanks be to God, there are some who understand what is going on....
who understand that in our time, we are in danger of becoming a secular Nation by default!
Those who understand what is going on within the Judicial System of our
land regarding this issue know that if we don't stop liberal judicial action
in our courts we will be giving up our Constitutional
rights to publicly give Recognition to God, the Source of all Cosmic Power,
Personal and National.
There are those who do not believe in any 'Cosmic Power, ie, in anything
that dignifies the Idea of Godness at work in the Life of people and
I have no problem with that. We all have a right to be wrong....
and somewhere in Eternity, all will bow the knee.
However those of us who do understand the present political
circumstances wish to retain the right to express that Belief in public
for if we lose that right, the next Right to be lost will be
the Right to Express Belief in God at all.
Communist Russia was the most recent example of a godless, secular
society that imploded and failed. That society is still digging itself out of
that evil debacle.
America was 'created' by people and for people who value freedom....
if we are born here it is because of that very reason!
WE VALUE FREEDOM.
If we are born in America....or have made the effort to live in America
we have the Responsibility to make sure that
Freedom to Worship God as we wish
is not lost through our blindness or carelessness
nor may we let it be taken away by Government
without terrible consequences.
