Freedom From Religion: Carrying Bible Could Lead to Fight

This one speaks for itself.  Welcome to the wonderful world of SecProg “diversity.”

RACINE – An expression of faith could lead to a fist fight, or so that’s what a school official told a high school student.  A 16-year-old boy from Racine was recently sent to the principal’s office for carrying his Bible.

Nathan de La Garza tells the Racine Journal Times his pastor had challenged him to carry his Bible with him at all times.  It didn’t go over well at Park High School, where an assistant principal told him to keep religion discussions out of school.

De La Garza tells the Journal Times the assistant principal was concerned he might offend somebody and entice a physical fight. A district spokesman claims some of De La Garza’s discussions had turned into disruptive “debates.”

Welcome to the new diverse and multicultural Rainbow Society, this Secular Progressive utopia of harmony and tolerance, where everything–and I mean absolutely everything–goes except for anything having to do with Christianity.  The ACLU, you know, the ones who “defend” your 1st Amendment rights, could not be found for comment.

  2. The supreme court decision and the ACLU actions are against telling a student what to read in the Bible.

    Dr. Nadine Strossen president of the ACLU states; “It is quite clear it only applies to the Federal Government.” In other words, state and local they will not concern themselves with regarding first amendment. It is the Supreme Court justices themselves who bring in the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment.

    These decisions are Against telling a student what to pray. It has consistently backed public funding of transportation to religious schools. Here is what the court has said. Justice Arthur Goldberg’s distinction between “the teaching of religion” and “teaching about religion” Every court case concerning a student’s right to carry a Bible or to pray of their own volition has said, yes, they can. Atheists had nothing to do with the Abington vs. Shemp case. They essentially were a non entity. Murray-Ohair got lots of publicity, but her case was combined. She had nothing to do with it. The country has bought her disinformation campaign that atheists won. Shemp was a Unitarian, wanting to protect his children’s right to practice their spiritual beliefs. There was nothing secular humanist about it. We do have idiots in and around school. That too is their constitutional right. Why the religious right insists on spreading the disinformation that children cannot pray in school is beyond me. Why atheists want their children to not understand the growth of music, art, Roman culture, Spanish Armada, abolition movement in America, etc. is beyond my comprehension. I agree with the supreme court. No one should be told what to believe. Education cannot be accomplished without reference to religion and the Bible. Teachers also can bring and read their Bibles to work. They cannot read them in class. They can read quotes in relation to subject matter. These cases have been tested in court. What Martin Luther said, what Calvin said, Jefferson, Gandhi, King or Bonhoeffer says is all acceptable. This is what the Supreme court said about it.

    “One can hardly respect the system of education that would leave the student wholly ignorant of the currents of religious thought that move the world society for which he is being prepared,”

    “Nothing we have said here indicates that such study of the Bible or of religion, when presented objectively as part of a secular program of education, may not be effected consistently with the First Amendment,”
