Militant Atheist Group Threatening To Sue School After Players Pray For Injured Teammate
The whiny atheists are at it again. The anti-Christian Freedom From Religion Foundation is pretending to be offended by a one-time occurrence of some teenage football players praying for their injured teammate.
According to Fox News,
The FFRF told the school district to “refrain from having a ‘volunteer team chaplain’ at Seminole High School.
The school district said the prayer was instigated by students and denied that a chaplain prayed with the team. School spokesman Mike Blasewitz told that the school doesn’t even have a team chaplain, contrary to the FFRF’s allegations.
If the FFRF goes ahead with a lawsuit against the school, they need to be called out as bullies. If they’re allowed to get away with it, they’ll succeed in attaching a stigma to Christianity as a bad thing, and eventually even things like mentioning a Bible verse or the name of God will be prohibited – with the exception of swearing, of course.
