Unsurprisingly, the theocratic dolts at the badly misnamed Liberty Counsel are backing an Alabama school board that wants to continue to hold elementary school assemblies so that a guy who calls himself “Bible Man” can tell the students stories out of the Bible.
Liberty Counsel is proud of an Alabama school board for standing strong against a complaint filed by the Freedom From Religion Foundation concerning religious assemblies.
After meeting to discuss the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s complaint concerning voluntary assemblies to teach elementary students Bible stories, the Jackson County School Board has announced they will not bow to pressure. One religious liberty law firm is pleased to see the school officials take a stand for the students’ constitutional rights.“This is another example of the Freedom From Religion Foundation wanting to literally erect a barrier between the government and any kind of freedom of religion, essentially causing the government to stifle freedom of religion,” says Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel…
“They want to make sure that everyone else believes that there’s no God, and they want to eliminate God and the Christian religion from the public sector, and even from the private sector as well,” the attorney offers. “This is the most anti-Christian organization in America.”
All of this is utterly disingenuous. Let a school hold an assembly for “Quran Man” to tell stories from the Muslim holy book and you will find out just how much they really believe all this bullshit about religious freedom.
