Mom Banned From Praying on Public School Property

I'm of the mind that the school had no right to ban her.  She didn't work for the school, wasn't obstructing anyone, and regardless of what the FFRF say, it is not unconstitutional.  Giving the impression that the school supports a particular message is a far cry from actually officially supporting it.  Banning someone because they might offend someone's delicate sensibilities is wrong.

The school administration are chickens, and took the easy way out bowing to pressure than stand up for what is right.  Suppressing the freedom of speech and expression is absolutely unconstitutional, while protecting someone from what they may perceive as the school sanctioning a religion is quite a stretch.

The Supreme Court resolved the constitutionality of blue laws in McGowan v. Maryland, 366 U.S. 420, 81 S.Ct. 1101, 6 L.Ed.2d 393 (1961)….The Court, in reviewing the history of blue laws, ruled that nonreligious reasons for the laws had been propounded since the 1700s. Secular argument for blue laws included the idea that it was good for the government to encourage people to take a day off work for rest and relaxation. In addition, the Court ruled that the employees could not make an Establishment Clause claim because they did not allege that their religious freedom had been infringed. They had only claimed the law had caused them economic harm.—

All 50 State Constitutions Explicitly Thank God for His Benevolence

Did you know every state constitution explicitly thanks God and acknowledges that our nation is dependent upon Him?  I didn't.  It doesn't surprise me that it was written in, but it does surprise me that none have been forced to remove it.  Seen at :

To know the hearts, minds and collective will of our Founding Fathers and American pioneers, one need only look to what they wrote in their respective state constitutions. Most will be amazed to learn that all 50 state constitutions explicitly and unequivocally thank God for his benevolence and acknowledge that we as a nation are dependent upon Him - that He is the sole source of our freedoms. This is true, not just for the "red states," but for the bluest of the blue. ().

Let's start with the most liberal state in the Union: Massachusetts.

We, therefore, the people of Massachusetts, acknowledging, with grateful hearts, the goodness of the great Legislator of the universe, in affording us, in the course of His providence ... and devoutly imploring His direction in so interesting a design, do agree upon, ordain and establish the following ... Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

N. Carolina Lawmakers Scrapping Tenure, Introducing A Voucher Program

A step in the right direction.

Even though tenure allows instructors more freedom of speech by ensuring they don't lose their job for something they say or publish, it also removes the incentive to do their job well because they won't be penalized for doing poor work in the classroom (if they even continue to teach).  Seen at :

North Carolina lawmakers recently passed a new state budget that includes education reforms that would improve teacher quality and expand school choice options for families.

NC-capitalRepublican leaders in the state House and Senate recently announced they’ve reached agreement on a $20.6 billion budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year that includes a $23.6 million provision “that scraps the longstanding teacher tenure system in favor of employing educators on contracts that are renewed based on performance reviews,” the  reports.

“Starting in 2014, it would also set aside $10 million to allow families that meet income guidelines to get state money to pay private school tuition,” the news service reports.

Liberal "tolerance" stops at Jesus Christ

From :

First of all, let me begin by saying this, I am a sinner; I have done terrible things that I must account for and be held accountable for.  There is only one worthy enough to judge me and that is, Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.  This is the only one I answer to, first and foremost.  All others are merely out of respect and common decency.

We as Christians are not perfect people; anyone claiming to be, in my opinion, is slightly delusional.  For me personally, I have never questioned the existence of God, but have certainly questioned his reasoning behind some of the events that have taken place over my life time and around me.  I have heard that sometimes when you believe He has not answered your prayers, it is because he felt you needed to be led in a different direction than what you intended.  Sometimes that path isn’t clearly defined, and you must really search and ask His guidance in determining that passage he has opened for you.
