Iowa Governor Signs Proclamation Inviting All Iowans to Turn from Their Wicked Ways and Embrace Christianity

This past week, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad signed a proclamation that calls on all Iowans to embrace Christianity according to a specific Bible verse:

The proclamation was suggested by a Christian group called “Prayer 7-14-14,” which references the date they plan to celebrate the Bible verse 2 Chronicles 7:14, where God states,

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

(Incidentally, 2 Chronicles 7:5 involves the gruesome slaughter of 142,000 animals, and 2 Chronicles 7:19-22 involves God telling us how he’s going to destroy a temple if people don’t embrace him… but, you know, Free Will something something. Let’s just ignore all that and focus on the single passage.)

This proclamation was for Jesus Followers, by Jesus Followers. And if you don’t follow Jesus, well, you damn well better start. Just look at the requesting group’s website if you dare… it tells you how, for the sake of our nation, we must come together to honor the Christian God.

The Overt Christianity on Clemson University’s Football Team

In September of 2012, Jeff Scott, an assistant coach for Clemson University’s football team, tweeted a picture of a player getting baptized, surrounded by his teammates:

Considering this tweet came from a coach’s Twitter account, showed players in their uniforms, and seemed to take place on a school-owned practice field, you could make a strong case for how it was inappropriate.

Now, there’s evidence — lots of it — that this wasn’t just some one-off event. In fact, Clemson football is virtually intertwined with the promotion of Christianity and the Freedom From Religion Foundation has the details to prove it.
