Unfortunately, groups like the ACLU are trampling our first amendment religious rights with more frequency and it is most alarming. That a person cannot freely pray ~ especially when they are off the clock ~ is a grave matter indeed…
The Florida dispute over a “Consent Decree” adopted by school officials that critics charge violates the First Amendment and abridges the rights of teachers and students alike has been escalated to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, where a petition is asking the judges to strike it down.
The document is on behalf of efforts by the Christian Educators Association International to intervene in the case. The organization has interests in the outcome and had tried to enter at the trial court level, but was rejected by the judge.
The case originated when two high school seniors in 2008 brought the complaint under the pseudonym of “Doe.” The solution adopted by the school board was a “Consent Decree” crafted by the American Civil Liberties Union which since then has been used to threaten employees with fines and jail time for something as personal as praying over a meal.
