Liberty? Not if the ACLU has their way
The ACLU jihad against Christianity extends into every corner of the country, including Benton, Louisiana:
The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana is threatening a local school district over alleged “proselytization” at Bossier Parish School System’s Airline High School.
ACLU of Louisiana Executive Director Marjorie Esman recently penned an open letter to Bossier superintendent D.C. Machen over an alleged “pattern of religious proselytization by establishing ‘prayer boxes’ with Christian symbols throughout the school and by religious messages in newsletters posted to the school’s website,” The Shreveport Times reports.
Specifically, Esman cites a message posted to the Airline High School website by principal Jason Rowland that includes the phrase “May God Bless You All,” as well as “similar messages” from Rowland.
Bellows Esman menacingly:
“Please confirm to this office that the School Board will take the necessary measures to ensure compliance with the law.”
You would think we were living in Soviet Russia.
At least the besieged school has a champion:
State Rep. Mike Johnson, a Republican from Bossier City, told the Times his law firm is willing to defend the district against the ACLU claims for free, because Johnson thinks they’re bogus.
“This is typical of the ACLU,” he said. “They’re on a seek-and-destroy mission for all things religious.”
