Todd Starnes, Fox News’ professional hysteric, is upset that a public school in Pennsylvania has settled a suit and agreed to take down a Ten Commandments monument. And he’s spouting his usual ridiculous rhetoric over the whole thing while putting his hypocrisy on display.
A Pennsylvania school district capitulated to the demands of a militant atheist who filed a federal lawsuit demanding the district remove a Ten Commandments monument erected on a public high school campus.
New Kensington-Arnold School District agreed to remove the massive monument within 30 days – ending a lawsuit filed in 2012 by self-avowed atheist Marie Schaub.
Schaub claimed the 6-foot stone monument erected outside Valley High School was a religious symbol and therefore was a violating of the U.S. Constitution.
Wrong. It’s not a religious symbol, it is literally a list of religious demands.
The school district had an opportunity to demonstrate to children how to defend our rights under the Constitution. Instead, they chose to throw in the towel – for the sake of expedience.
And in doing so – the school district violated an eleventh commandment: Thou Shall Not Tucketh Tail and Run.
What rights? Where in the Constitution does it say that you have a “right” to post a list of religious demands at the entrance of a public school? Go ahead, list the specific provision in the Constitution that says you have that right. We’ll wait. Came up snake eyes, didn’t you? What a shock. Now just imagine that instead of the Ten Commandments it was a monument to the Five Pillars of Islam. Starnes would take the exact opposite position, but the FFRF would take the same position. That’s how you can tell the difference between a principled position and hypocrisy.
On Planet Wingnuttia, only Christians have the “religious freedom” to pee on their territory to show that they are the dominant religion in America. As always, it’s not about religious freedom, it’s about Christian privilege.
