-Mississippi: Half Time Civil Disobedience Against Federal Judge

by Dr. D ~ August 24th, 2015

During half time at a high school game in Mississippi, hundreds of fans stood up and sang ‘How Great Thou Art’ as a response to a federal court order that had blocked the band from performing their half time show that included the classic hymn that has been a popular hit several time over by a number of different artists.

Here’s the story from Todd Starnes:

There was no halftime show under the Friday night lights at Mississippi’s Brandon High School — the marching band had been benched.

The band was ordered off the field because the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art” was a part of their halftime show — in violation of a federal court order.  …

During halftime of Friday night’s game – a lone voice began to sing the forbidden song.

“Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee,” the singer sang. And then – something remarkable happened.

Brittany Mann was there and she witnessed the entire moment of defiance.

“We were just sitting there and then one by one people started to stand,” she told me. “At first, it started out as a hum but the sound got louder and louder.”

She said it was a “truly incredible” moment to watch hundreds of people singing together in the stadium – a musical act of civil disobedience.

Response: What a great heartfelt response. The fans stood up in an obvious act of disrespect and civil disobedience to the judge’s order. There is no way the school can be fined for the impromptu response of the community.

A Federal judge warned the district that the next violation would bring a $10,000 fine, so the school district officials would not allow the band to perform the half time show that they had been working on for several months which included the hymn.

Hopefully now the school authorities will also stand up and appeal the ruling. there seems to be considerable community support for such an action.               *Top
