"Two Santa Rosa (Florida) educators are facing criminal charges for praying in violation of a federal court order. … Pace High School Principal Frank Lay asked the school’s athletic director, Robert Freeman, to bless a meal where sports boosters had gathered to celebrate the completion of a new field house ... A federal court order earlier this year prohibited, ... among other things, any prayer in schools.” reports NorthEscambia.com.
Prayer is speech, speech to God. The Constitution says, “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.” The press remains free but speech is becoming illegal, when it is speaking to God.
A blogger writes, “The ACLU and MR/MS. INSTIGATOR are racist, Christian hate mongers!! You are persecuting these gentlemen for expressing and practicing their religion, YOU are violating their rights. They need an ACLU of their own to fight for their rights. What a bunch of hypocrites!!”
We still have freedom of speech, as long as we do not kneel, fold our hands, or speak to God. The Federal Government is seeing to this.
