Christians exercising freedom of religion participated in a baptism on school grounds. Naturally, misguided atheists complained. Instead of securing the rights of Christians, Carroll County School district officials choose to “investigate. Investigate?
“The Carroll County School System was made aware of a situation that took place at Villa Rica High School prior to football practice on August 17th. The District is currently looking into the specifics of this situation and will take appropriate steps to ensure all state and federal laws are followed.”
I suggest Carroll County school district officials investigate the Constitution. To wit: First Amendment Right of Freedom of Religion.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Under authority of our U.S. Constitution, there can be no law that either establishes a religion (atheism is a religion) of that prohibits the free exercise thereof.
The Freedom From Religion atheist organization wishes to remove all public exercise of the Christian religion from the public square. Government officials ignorant of the law meekly kowtow to the demands of atheists, fearing bad publicity or lawsuits.
This atheist organization rabidly sues Christians across the country, but they don’t always win. In fact, they are losers in every sense of the word.
The Bible instructs: “So give yourselves humbly to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Every time we resist Satanic attacks by atheists we win.
I applaud First Baptist Villa Rica for winning souls and baptizing new believers in Jesus Christ. I applaud the courage of those new Christians, students and coach, who publicly demonstrated their new-found faith in our Savior. Atheists are not hard to defeat.
