I’ve posted multiple times about the Rankin County School District (in Mississippi). This is a District where a school held a religious assembly during the school day, only to be exposed by one of the students, then held another one a year later. This is a place where another school in the District held a Gideon Bible giveaway. And this is a place where the Superintendent blocked the formation of a Gay-Straight Alliance. Because of all this, a judge ruled that any future violations of church/state separation would result in an automatic $10,000 fine.
You’d think officials there would finally get the hint: The School District is not a church. They cannot be in the business of promoting religion.
I guess it still hasn’t sunk in.
Last night, the Brandon High School marching band members were told — just before the first football game of the season — that they could not perform because part of their show involved the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art.”
