BIBLE BANNED IN AMERICA (AS COMMIES ALWAYS DO)
Community members are rallying around Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School cheerleaders after they were banned from displaying signs with Bible verses urging fans and players to “commit to the Lord” and “take courage and do it.”
The banners — the paper ones that football players crash through at the beginning of games — have been common sights in the school’s football stadium since 2003, local officials say.
Catoosa County Schools spokeswoman Marissa Brower said a Fort Oglethorpe resident lodged a verbal complaint to Superintendent Denia Reese last week, saying that the display of a Bible verse on the football field is a violation of federal law.
The Bible is banned from public? Is that Federal Law? What did our founders die for if not freedom of expression and religion?
9/18/09 At a football game on the school's field, cheerleaders at Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School hold up a sign with a Biblical verse on it. After a complaint last week, the school has banned the cheerleaders from using any more signs with religious statements on them, saying it violates the U.S. Constitution.
A school system statement released Monday said the message constitutes “a violation of the First Amendment of the Constitution for signs with Bible verses to be displayed on the football field.”
Here is what the US Constitution says about the matter, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
Any law that establishes a national religion is unconstitutional. NO SUCH LAW HAS BEEN PASSED.
Any law that prohibits the "FREE EXERCISE THEREOF" is unconstitutional. SUCH LAWS HAVE BEEN PASSED SUCH AS THE ONES THAT STOP CHEERLEADERS FROM EXPRESSING THEIR FAITH!
