After Complaint, Texas Principal Will Stop Promoting Religion While on the Job

Back in September, I posted about a Texas principal who thought he was being paid to act as a priest. Prosper High School Principal Greg Wright preached at a See You at the Pole event and single-handedly formed a Christian club at the school. Neither was legal and both showed a complete disregard for students to handle their own religious activities. At the same time, teachers at the school were leading religious clubs and at least one staffer had religious iconography hanging in her office.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter to the Prosper Independent School District listing Wright’s repeated constitutional violations:

Texas City Council Will Have Two Invocations at Meetings Just in Case an Atheist Delivers One

Last month, I posted about how the Keller City Council in Texas had invocation prayers at meetings. That alone isn’t a problem since the Supreme Court already ruled on its legality. That’s also why, last year, my friend Zach Moore of the Keller Humanists requested to deliver one of those invocations. Mayor Mark Matthews initially said no to him, but eventually relented at the request of the pastor who coordinated the speakers.

There was just one caveat: Moore could speak… but only if he was followed by a Christian speaker.

In other words, they weren’t going to have a meeting without a Christian prayer. It’s like they were saying, “You can┬ásay whatever you want… but we’re going to make sure a Christian has the last word.”

The Trailer for God’s Not Dead 2 is Full of Fake Christian Persecution

We already knew the plot of God’s Not Dead 2. This time, Melissa Joan Hart (from Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Clarissa Explains It All) is a high school teacher who quotes the Bible in class and gets sued by a student (Hayley Orrantia of The Goldbergs) who believes in separation of church and state. And then there’s a trial because that’s how reality works.

We also knew the Christian persecution theme song for the movie.

Now, the official trailer has been released and it’s as cringe-worthy as you’d expect:
