Tennessee School Can't Hand Out Bibles Anymore Because Stupid Constitution
Where does it say this isn't OK?
Another blow to the oppressed Christian majority across America, as some smart aleck in Tennessee decided to look up this "Constitution" thing, and you'll never believe the crazy talk hidden deep inside of it!
Bledsoe County Schools Superintendent Jennifer Terry recently told the media that due to a complaint, the school is now banning religious distributions, meaning that the Christian group Gideons International will be barred from the school going forward.
Apparently, Gideon Chaplain Charlie Queen has been dropping by the local schoolhouse, setting up a table of Bibles, and simply offering them to children strolling by. No one is forcing students to take them, for Christ's sake! He's been doing it for years, so he doesn't understand why all of a sudden, just because someone filed a formal complaint, he can't do that anymore. Oh, sure, Superintendent Terry claims it's something to do with the Constitution:
The distribution of religious materials in a public school is in violation of constitutional provisions and well established federal and state laws and precedence.
But whatEVER, that's just more of that PC nonsense liberal claptrap, innit? Lee Station Baptist Church Pastor Bill Wolfe cried to local news station WRCB TV that he and his congregation are very butthurt about it because Jesus only knows where this persecution will end. Usually, they focus on their stated missions of "Food Bank, Clothes Closet, Christmas for Kids, Laundry Mat Days, Lunches for kids," but now they're going to have to shuffle their schedule to work "protesting" into the mix.
We’re sliding further and further away from the principals [sic] our nation was founded on and it’s very sad because we used to be a Nation under God Now I really believe we are slipping further away and we’re not going to be able to say that much longer.
First they'll tell you the so-called "Constitution" says you can't peddle Gideon's Bible in public schools, and before you know it, they're taking the Christ out of coffee cups, forcing Walmart employees to greet shoppers by saying "Allahu Akbar," and then BOOM! Suddenly, we're all hiding in the attic with Anne Frank and wishing Jeb Bush had killed Baby Hitler.
