Members of Mississippi’s Pinelake Baptist Church recently shared the message of finding hope in Jesus Christ. They even played a video to really bring home that message:
In the video, two young men were interviewed who had once led “troubled” lives. To find hope, the men described various behaviors such as turning to drugs, sex, cutting, suicide, and the like. They then explained how turning to Jesus Christ solved their problems and recommended that other people turn to Jesus Christ as well.
Sounds perfectly normal for a church gathering.
The problem is that the gathering took place at Northwest Rankin High School, a public school.
During the school day.
And the principal even made it clear all seniors had to attend the assembly.
Even when students tried to leave the Performing Arts Building so they wouldn’t have to listen to the preaching, “faculty stood near the exit door, preventing students from leaving.”
It’s about as unconstitutional as you can get.
