The rights of Christians are under attack again! Consider what has happened just in the last week:
- In New Jersey, East Brunswick High School officials told football coach Marcus Borden he cannot kneel and bow his head while members of his team have a student-led pre-game prayer.
- In Wisconsin’s Tomah Area School District, a teacher refused to give a student identified only as A.T. a grade on an art project because his work included “John 3:16″ as well as “A sign of love.” However, Buddha, Hindu and sorcerers are considered “approved” forms of art by the school.
- In Mt. Vernon, Ohio, school leaders told teacher John Freshwater he must put his Bible out of sight when students are in his room. Mr. Freshwater has refused to do so. He has had a Bible on his desk for the past 18 years.
Our religious freedoms are slowly being taken away, mainly because Christians have not taken a stand! People of faith are being forced to remain silent while other religions are accepted in the name of “tolerance.”
This is wrong. This is un-American. All of this has happened at the same time that Pope Benedict XVI was in our nation asking us to reweaken to Christ our Hope. When you hear of injustices such as this - be firm, stand strong and let your voice be known.
