-Churches Providing Food to Football Team a Violation?

by Dr. D ~ August 24th, 2012

The most recent attack by the atheist group-FFRF involves churches providing free food to a school football team and having a (gasp!) prayer over the meal.

From Todd Starnes-Fox News:

A Wisconsin-based group has accused a Georgia high school football coach of violating the First Amendment by allowing local churches to prepare meals for his team.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter to the superintendent of Walker County Schools demanding an “immediate investigation” into Ridgeland High School football coach Mark Mariakis.

Response: It has apparently been a tradition in this community for the local churches to take turns providing pre-game meals for the high school football team. The FFRF claims that this is some how a violation of the Constitution? When the establishment clause was originally written it envisioned a environment of freedom to practice ones religion un-curtailed without an official state religion not that religion was to be eradicated from the public square.

Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, observed in the article that it is time for Christians to stand up against the attacks from the FFRF:

“The Freedom From Religion Foundation has dedicated itself to perverting the very real First Amendment freedom of religious expression for an imaginary freedom from religious expression,” he told Fox News. “It is time for all Christians to push back against the attempts of atheistic groups and judicial activists to erase our constitutional right of freedom of religious expression.”

We whole heartedly agree.           *Top
