Youth pastors defend involved students.
I don't understand the objection...is there an objection? Maybe I'm missing it. I'm feeling pretty dense today so its likely I've missed something. Help me out here.
It's just a banner.
I fail to see how the First Amendment applies.
And if it was verses from the Qran? That should also be OK?
Of course not. The Koran is false religion.
In a democracy, like ours, what is good for the goose is good for the gander. If Christians are allowed to have banners then every religion also must be allowed to have banners whether you and I like it or not. If we demand free speech than we must allow others their free speech also.
Did I really read that? According to you, it should be legal for a public school to allow verses from scripture, but it should be illegal for a public school to allow verses from the Koran?
Muslims would probably consider it disrespectful to subject their scriptures to being publicly trampled and torn.
From the OP article: "The signs, which the Georgia school football team has run through for years..."
I hold the Bible to be inerrant and infallible but its not sanctified. It isn't divine.
Look I can quote here and in a dozen years or so the electrons holding that quotation will be obliterated with a keystroke. How is that different?
Sometimes I think we take our respect for the Bible too far. This is just a group of kids (flagrantly misapplying some Scriptures) desiring to honor God.
I said it would not be OK.
The First Amendment is a restriction on congress, not on local schoolboards. If the local schoolboard wants to promote Islam, that's a local issue—same with Christianity.
Sorry, but the courts have ruled otherwise, and rightfully so.
There we go again with what the courts say (see gun thread), instead of what is right, or with what God says.
LOCAL: Bema Seat
VOCAL: "But Sir, I only did what the earthly courts told me to do!"
RESPONSE: "But when did I tell you to do what the earthly courts said and not do what to do what I said?"
Remember, earthly courts say abortion is 'constitutional'.
The courts are snip illiterate snip.
Amen. No human court or law is above the Law of God.
That's so untrue and inaccurate, I don't know where to start.
then allow me...
Since you are so ignorant to the fact that the government funds, and makes all the institutional regulations that the USA schools go by, then you must be blissfully unaware that the schools do, in fact, make the rules and regulations, then your mention of government intervention not causing a problem must be due to your inability to acknowledge the reality that individual schools permit their rules to circumvent any circumstance that they want to?
In other words....SNIP?
I believe the 1st Amendment is one that the Supremes in times past has determined to be incorporated into all levels of government. Remember the school prayer issues?
And yes what is good for the goose is good for the gander. So, in this (like it or not) culture with multiple religions including "no religion", a public school must allow all religions the same access privileges.
All this over ONE person's complaint? That's sad. Let that individual not come tot he game... situation resolved.
Christianity has been forcibly removed from our schools, but Islam and other Eastern religions are welcome and even taught as "cultural".
The superintendent was correct to make them stop. The first amendment is to protect the minority, even it is only one person.
Baptists from days gone by would be rolling and flip-flopping in their graves if they read many of these comments coming from folks claiming to be Baptist
The superintendent claims that the cheerleaders violated the 1st Amendment.
Not the sharpest knife in the drawer. If she doesn't know that the Constitution is binding on the government, not on citizens, I'm not sure she should be educating our children.
