Alabama Superintendent Sends Godly Messages to Faculty Members Every Week

You probably won’t be surprised to learn that a school district in Alabama violated the First Amendment by promoting Christianity. But your eyebrow might go up a bit when you hear just how much Superintendent Randy Wilkes (below) played a role in the process.

There’s also the Duck Dynasty dress-up day they had last year and the school song which includes the words “God bless.”

These Cheerleaders Are Leading Prayers Before Football Games Because Screw You, Atheists, That’s Why

Oneida High School in Tennessee used to announce prayers over the public address system before football games, in direct defiance of a Supreme Court decision banning such school-sponsored activities, but that’s since changed after the ACLU and FFRF wrote letters to TN districts warning them of the legal problems:

Texas School Board Vows to Defend Plaques at Elementary Schools That Say “In the Name of the Holy Christian Church”

Last month, we learned that Mountain Peak Elementary School and Longbranch Elementary School in Midlothian, Texas both had religious plaques hanging near the entrances. They had been there for 17 years:

Dedicated in the year of our Lord 1997 to the education of God’s children and to their faithful teachers in the name of the Holy Christian Church

Soli Deo Gloria
