The ACLU completely sickens me. They spy on teachers private lives and try to get them thrown in jail for saying grace at a private function off campus. What is wrong with the evil lawyers at the ACLU?!!!! Praying is not a crime in this country, and they need to step back, read the constitution and remember what country they are living in. They should all be locked up for their harassment and constant attacks on Christians who are exercising their first amendment rights. Thank God for Christian legal non-profit groups who will stand up to these bigoted, communist thugs.
came off the ACLU’s steamroller. While we are pleased with the ruling, we are saddened that a wonderful woman had to spend a day in court, with the ACLU’s crosshairs aimed at her back. Prayer is neither contemptuous nor criminal. It is outrageous that the ACLU sought civil contempt charges against an outstanding woman whose husband prayed a beautiful prayer at a privately sponsored event held off campus. The ACLU needs to take a good dose
of the First Amendment and call us in the morning,” he said.
The fight isn’t over, even though a judge ruled against them, and rightly upheld a private citizens right to bless their food before they eat it.
The fight, however, remains far from over.
Principal Frank Lay
On Sept. 17, Liberty Counsel is scheduled to return to court to defend Principal Frank Lay and Robert Freeman, the athletic director, from charges of criminal contempt for praying over a meal at an event for private contributors to the school’s athletic program.
Staver will defend Lay and Freeman. According to FoxNews.com both school officials are at risk of being given jail time and having their retirement savings
revoked by the state.
Accusations against the two stem from a blessing of a meal at a separate luncheon to honor private contributors to the athletic program, LC said.
The war against the school employees erupted when the ACLU filed a lawsuit against the district and Rodgers issued a broadly worded injunction regarding prayer and religious activities at school.
The event Winkler attended, and for which she was charged, was a privately funded event off campus after school hours to honor district workers. She was accompanied by her husband, who read a prayer blessing.
Those great men who wrote our constitution are rolling over in their graves at what has become of a large portion of this country. We must fight this kind of discrimination and harassment everywhere it exists. And, the ACLU should be forced to pay the legal fees of every person they falsely accuse out of a disgusting hatred of anything related to Christianity. We still have freedom of religion and speech in this country, and the ACLU must be forced to accept that.
