Free Speech Eroding for Christian Students


"Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted." 
— Lenin


"Teacher sayin', Can’t be prayin', says it's against the rules.
We're free today in the USA, but not here in my school."
— Morgan Cryar, "Pray in the USA"

Buona sera. If you are interested in my occasional links and such about the persecution of Christians, they will continue. After all, persecution, discrimination and so forth not only continues, but increases.

The first leader of the Soviet Union knew the value of shaping a child's mind. The history of atheism and brainwashing by atheistic indoctrination in the USSR is well known, so I do not need to give you a history lesson now.

Secularists, "Progressives", so-called humanists, atheists and cafones of that ilk have been working to undermine the Christian values and education in America for decades. I remember hearing a pastor in the small town of Ionia, Michigan somewhere around 1985 tell about a student that he knew who was told that he could not bring a Bible to school. If I remember right, the child was told that it was "illegal". Horse puckey. Fortunately, the pastor got involved and straightened out that situation.

But such nonsense continues. The "legal" excuse for it is the so-called "Constitutional wall of separation of church and state". Except that it does not appear in the Constitution. Oh, wait... yes, it does! "...the church is separated from the state, and the school from the church." It's right there in the 1977 USSR Constitution. Except that we're not communists. Yet.

A former student at Gateway East High School of the Grossmont Union High School District has filed suit against GUHSD, saying he was disciplined and suspended for sharing his faith with fellow students and for bringing his Bible to school. The student is represented by Pacific Justice Institute.


The conflict for Kenneth Dominguez began when he returned from Christmas break in January 2010 and began telling his fellow students about his Christian faith. On several occasions he was reprimanded for doing so and eventually he was told not to bring his Bible to school. An administrator told him that he could not share his Christian faith with fellow students or bring his Bible to school because of separation of church and state. When he continued to discuss his faith and bring his Bible to school he was given a 2 day suspension on February 18, 2010.


While I was on the hunt, I came across a couple of other gems.
For years, the Collier County School District allowed World Changers to offer Bibles to interested students during non-school hours on Jan. 16 in honor of Religious Freedom Day. But since last year, the superintendent and the Community Request Committee have refused to grant permission to the Southern Baptist Convention-related mission group to do so.


School officials claim Bibles do not provide any educational benefit to the students and thus distribution should stop.
Read the rest of the article about the blatant stupidity and Bible hatred here.

An Augusta State University student filed suit Wednesday after she was told to change her Christian beliefs or otherwise be expelled from the school's graduate counseling program.


"A public university student shouldn’t be threatened with expulsion for being a Christian and refusing to publicly renounce her faith, but that’s exactly what’s happening here," said David French, senior counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund. "Simply put, the university is imposing thought reform."


And now, the "Candy Cane Case", eight years in the making.
First, they banned eight-year-old Jonathan Morgan from handing out candy canes with Jesus’ name on them to classmates at a school holiday party.


Then they confiscated a little girl’s pencils after school because they mentioned “God.” But that’s not all…


They even banned an entire classroom from writing “Merry Christmas” on cards to our troops serving in Iraq!


Now, these same government officials are actually arguing in court that elementary students can be discriminated against and are too young to have First Amendment protection, and if they win this case, they could silence 41 million American school kids and their parents.
Read the rest of this bit of sweetness here and here. Also, see their seven minute video, below. And a music video below that.

Of course, those who approve of rewriting history, persecution and thought control deny such things, capice? Welcome to the Union of Soviet Socialist States of America, Comrade.
