USA school bans prayers and talking about Jesus, even during free time

The US Bill of Rights


Apparently, another school in the USA has its own views on speech and religion.  Notice the following:

November 13, 2014

Free time is no longer prayer time for Christian students at Pine Creek High School, Colorado Springs after they were banned from meeting to pray, sing religious songs, or discuss religious topics as a group.

Chase Windebank a senior at Pine Creek was summoned to the office of the Assistant Principal James Lucas because he had been leading a bible study group in their school, Fox News reported.

“He was told that he could no longer pray with his fellow students during free time because of the separation of church and state,” said Jeremy Tedesco, an attorney representing the teenager.

Tedesco is with the Alliance Defending Freedom, a law firm specializing in handling religious liberty cases and the group that successfully pushed an Arizona school district to tamp down its sexual education curriculum.

“He was told that he could pray before the school day begins or after the school day ends but he could not do it during the school day,” Tedesco told me.

A school spokesperson confirmed that the Windebank group was told to disband in accordance with state law.

“Students were told that, according to state law and district policy, they could meet during non-instructional time,” the spokesperson told Fox in a written statement. “That is before or after school.”

The school argues that non-curriculum related groups should only meet during “non-instructional” time. Jesus is not part of the school’s curriculum therefore talking about Him should be done after school hours. Chase and his friends can still meet provided that they don’t talk about religion or mention the name of Jesus.

In my view, governments do not have the right to tell people that they cannot pray or speak of religion along as it is not being done in a disrupting way.

Notice something that was to be protected in the USA:

  • First Amendment
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The intent of the bill of rights was that no governmental entity in the USA could restrict freedom of speech or religion as these were considered to be inalienable human rights.

Now, more and more government officials are attempting to abridge the free exercise of various rights supposedly enshrined in what has been called the Bill of Rights. Many government official do not truly abide by the Constitution of the USA any more.

The USA is in decline in many ways.  It is not truly the land of the free anymore.
