Colin Bloom writes concerning…
Jackson Middle School, Ohio, where for the past 66 years a portrait of Jesus has been hanging in their entrance hall.
The portrait didn’t belong to the school, but to one of the student clubs. However, some radical and aggressive secularists from the FFRF (Freedom from Religion Foundation) and the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) decided to take the school to court for their unconstitutional promotion of religion in a public school. As if there weren’t more pressing matters to deal with in American schools…
It is worth noting that between the FFRF and the ACLU they have an annual budget of more than $100m to fight these cases.
Despite nobody complaining, despite it harming nobody, despite this picture hanging there benignly since the 1940’s, the School’s board took down the picture of Jesus because their insurance company declined to cover litigation expenses.
The school Superintendent said, “At the end of the day, we just couldn’t roll the dice with taxpayer money, when you get into these kinds of legal battles, you’re not talking about money you can raise with bake sales and car washes. It’s not fair to take those resources from our kids’ education.”
Signs of the times. An angry atheist snivels and all the world must tremble. But such trembling is cowardice. We should have a ‘Freedom From the Freedom From Religion Foundation‘. Or we could just act with sense and tell them to sod off back to Wisconsin when they come to town-a-whining.
Angry atheists have declared war on Christianity- it’s time for Christianity to man up and stand its ground and not give an inch to these godless whack-jobs.
