At a Tennessee Football Game—not a joke

 

At a  Tennessee Football Game—not a  joke

 


 

        Christianity  is now the target of  persecution…

 

 

        THIS  IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS! GOD BLESS

EVERYONE WHO  READS THIS AND PASSES IT

ON.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

        I  FIND IT INTERESTING THAT A HIGH SCHOOL

PRINCIPAL  CAN SEE THE PROBLEM, BUT OUR

SOCIETY CANNOT.

 



Tennessee  Football

 

This  is a statement that was read over the PA sytem

 at the football game  at Roane  County  High School ,

Kingston , Tennessee by school  Principal, Jody

McLeod   

 


 

“It  has always been the custom at Roane County High

 School football games, to say a prayer and play  the

National Anthem, to honor God and  Country.”   

 

 



Due  to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am

 told that saying a Prayer is a violation of  Federal

Case Law. As I understand the law at  this time, I can

use this public facility to  approve of sexual perversion

and call it “an  alternate life style,” and if someone is

 offended, that’s OK.



I  can use it to condone sexual promiscuity, by

 dispensing condoms and calling it, “safe sex.”  If

someone is offended, that’s  OK.  



I  can even use this public facility to present the

 merits of killing an unborn baby as a “viable!  Means

of birth control.” If someone is offended,  no

problem….   



I  can designate a school day as “Earth Day” and

 involve students in activities to worship  religiously

and praise the goddess “Mother  Earth” and call it

 “ecology..”   



I  can use literature, videos and presentations in  the

classroom that depicts people with strong,  traditional

Christian convictions as “simple  minded” and

“ignorant” and call it  “enlightenment..”   



However,  if anyone uses this facility to honor GOD

and to  ask HIM to Bless this event with safety and

good  sportsmanship, then Federal Case Law is

 violated.   



This  appears to be inconsistent at best, and at  worst,

diabolical.


Apparently,  we are to be tolerant of everything and

anyone,  except GOD and HIS  Commandments..   



Nevertheless  , as a school principal, I frequently ask

staff  and students to abide by rules with which they

 do not necessarily agree. For me to do otherwise

 would be inconsistent at best, and at worst,

 hypocritical. I suffer from that affliction  enough

unintentionally. I certainly do not need  to add an

intentional  transgression.   



For  this reason, I shall “Render unto Caesar that

 which is Caesar’s,” and refrain from praying at  this

time.

”  However, if you feel inspired to honor, praise  and

thank GOD and ask HIM,in the name of JESUS,  to

Bless this event, please feel free to do  so..  As  far as I

know, that’s not against the  law—-yet.”



One by one, the  people in the stands bowed their

heads, held  hands with one another and began to

 pray.

They  prayed in the stands. They prayed in the team  huddles. They prayed at the concession stand and  they prayed in the Announcer’s  Box!


The only place  they didn’t pray was in the Supreme

Court of the  United States of America- the Seat of

“Justice”  in the “one nation, under  GOD.”   



Somehow,  Kingston , Tennessee Remembered what so

many  have forgotten. We are given the Freedom OF

 Religion, not the  FreedomFROM  ReligionPraise

 GOD that HIS remnant  remains!   



JESUS  said, “If you are ashamed of ME before men,

then  I will be ashamed of you before MY  FATHER..”

If you are not  ashamed, pass this on  ..
  



I’m  not one bit ashamed to pass this on, Are  you?

        THIS  IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS! GOD BLESS

EVERYONE WHO  READS THIS

  1. It’s the same here in Canada Ed, and i’m not happy about it at all. When I was little we not only said a prayer each morning at school but also read a verse from the bible. And that was public school! Then slowly over the years they seemed to phase out all mention of anything to do with religion or god or christ to the point where they dont even want to use the phrase Merry Christmas anymore, or let the kids have a Christmas concert or an Easter Vacation! I think its so wrong that freedom of expression has become like a religion in itself for anything EXCEPT god and christianity….crazy times Ed.
