I’m not a religious person, in fact I think religion is silly superstition. But I don’t like football, basketball, NASCAR or any other spectator sport either.
But if there ever was a time when good, old fashioned civil disobedience was called for, this would be it.
A federal judge has ordered a Texas school district to prohibit public prayer at a high school graduation ceremony.
Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery’s order against the Medina Valley Independent School District also forbids students from using specific religious words including “prayer” and “amen.”
The ruling was in response to a lawsuit filed by Christa and Danny Schultz. Their son is among those scheduled to participate in Saturday’s graduation ceremony. The judge declared that the Schultz family and their son would “suffer irreparable harm” if anyone prayed at the ceremony.
Irreparable harm? Really? Just for hearing a couple of words?
Judge Fred Biery needs to be impeached for incompetence.
And if the people attending that graduation ceremony don’t send a big fuck you to the judge and have several prayers I’ll be very disappointed.
