Leftists continue to piss on our Constitution

An unbelievable story out of Tennessee via Gateway Pundit

Now they’re telling us that we can’t bow our heads.
Football coaches in Sumner County, Tennessee, are in trouble for bowing their heads during a student-led prayer.
Via Poor Richard’s News:

Teachers and coaches cannot appear like they are endorsing prayer.
WSMVreported:

Some football coaches are in trouble for something they did with their players. They said a prayer.

That has the school district taking action.

And the policy, while it may be the law, has plenty of people up in arms.

Every school district has a responsibility to follow the law, and separate private faith from public school. It can be a fine line at times. One crossed in Sumner County, it seems, when the coaches didn’t say a word during a student-led prayer, but they did bow their heads.

In a town like Westmoreland, faith and football seem to matter.

“We’re just respectful, God-fearing people up here,” resident Tony Bentle said.

Bentle called games for Westmoreland High School for 42 years.

“A lot of history. A lot of changes. A lot of football,” he said.

So when he, like a lot of people, heard what happened after a recent game at the middle school.

“It actually blew my mind, that we had come to that point,” he said. “Nobody in this town is offended if you pray. Nobody.”

During a student-originated, student-led prayer, four coaches bowed their heads. They didn’t say a word.

Outrageous? Yes, and steeped in the worst traditions of Marxism. There is no way that such a rule is constitutional, the government telling you when you may bow your head? Telling you not to appear as if you are praying? This is what we have reaped because we have catered to the malcontents, and placated the whiners and the intolerant Leftists in America.

  1. The destruction (progressives would call it “reinterpretation”) of our constitution over the past 100 years has brought us to this point.

    Time was that just the opposite used to be the case: Government was forbidden to step in and violate the God-given rights of someone to pray. But of course it’s AOK to force-feed our kids the gay agenda at public schools.

    1. Sad isn’t it? If every teacher at this school, and every student and parent would bow their heads at the next function, it would send a message

  2. This is an unconstitutional act period! They can not enforce this nor can they hold any coach accountable for bowing their heads because no sort of law can prohibit the free exercise of religion per the constitution. Being a government employee or state employee doesn’t mean you forfeit you constitutional rights. If I was in this situation I continue to bow my head and if they fired me or treated me different I would take them to court for violating my constitutional rights. I’m linking to this.

  3. Since leftists refuse to give up on the intellectually vacant notion that every person who has any connection to a public school must give up their right to free, religious expression on school grounds, here’s an idea that should end the debate once and for all: PRIVATIZE THE EDUCATION SYSTEM! It has become an utter failure over the past three decades, and the left’s only answer is to throw more taxpayer money at a problem that has next to nothing to do with finances. Instead of taxing billions of dollars away from the citizenry and running it through a corrupt governmental system that wastes most of it and is hostile toward the people who pay it, simply allow the parents of children who actually attend schools to pay for their education with the money you DIDN’T tax out of their pockets to begin with. Allow competition to decide which schools stay afloat and which ones fail, consolidate the good ones into districts that are capable of teaching kids how to read and write, pay the best teachers more than the average ones so that the latter are incentivized to be better teachers, and finally tell the ACLU to go pound sand!
