When a school board is sued over for illegally praying to Jesus at meetings, you’d think a lot of local Christians would be thrilled about it. They’ll say prayer is good, and any church/state separation group that opposes it is simply trying to persecute Christians.
We rarely see community members speak out against what the board is doing.
But that’s slowly changing in the Chino Valley Unified School District (in California). The Freedom From Religion Foundation has sued the Board for its promotion of religion, but it looks like locals are coming around to FFRF’s side… or at least they’re admitting the Board has crossed a line. Much of that stems from a July meeting when Vice President Andrew Cruz whined about marriage equality, invoked the Confederate Flag, argued that racism was over, complained about California’s recent mandatory vaccination laws… and basically did nothing that would help students.
