You’ll want to watch this beautiful video, featuring poetry by Chad Michael:
Just the other day, I posted a story about a young river rafting guide,
Bethany Paquette, who applied for a job at Amaruk Wilderness Corp.… only to be rejected because she attended Trinity Western University, a Christian school in British Columbia known for its anti-gay theology.
Back in August, I posted about a Ten Commandments monument in the city of Fargo, North Dakota.
It was donated by the Fraternal Order of Eagles in 1958 and was the only religious monument of its kind on city property. Long story short, it remained there even after two separate legal challenges.
Two years ago, Ernest Perce V (below, the Pennsylvania State Director of American Atheists at the time) and Carl Silverman (of the PA Nonbelievers) tried to convince the Greencastle-Antrim School District board members to drop the Lord’s Prayer, a 50-year-old tradition.
And it worked! The board members realized they weren’t going to win this battle, so they stopped fighting it.
Last week, when the school board held its regular meeting, Ernest Perce was there once again… but for a very different and surprising reason.
