Maybe because I am reading the book, some articles have caught my attention that normally might not have twigged with me.
School prayer charges stir protests
Educators face jail in Florida
Students, teachers and local pastors are protesting over a court case involving a northern Florida school principal and an athletic director who are facing criminal charges and up to six months in jail over their offer of a mealtime prayer.
.....An ACLU official said the school district has allowed "flagrant" violations of the First Amendment for years.
"The defendants all admitted wrongdoing," said Daniel Mach, director of litigation for its freedom of religion program. "For example, the Pace High School teachers handbook asks teachers to 'embrace every opportunity to inculcate, by precept and example, the practice of every Christian virtue.' "
Yikes, teachers are asked to practice Christian virtue and that's BAD? Well, obviously we can't have teachers telling their students that stealing is wrong, that murder is wrong, or that helping those less fortunate is good. I mean really, those Christian values are just so last year.
...Mr. Staver said the district also agreed to forbid senior class President Mary Allen from speaking at the school's May 30 graduation ceremony on the chance that the young woman, a known Christian, might say something religious.
"She was the first student body president in 33 years not allowed to speak," he said.
Here is where Ezra's fight with the HRC's comes to mind. The ALCU told the school that the class president couldn't speak because she is a known Christian and MIGHT say something religious. MIGHT????? Thought crime. Freedom of religion? Not so much. Disgusting. That is happening in the US, not Canada! No wonder the town halls are erupting. This profound change is going on because of lefty organizations like ACLU and Acorn, and lefty friendly media. I think change is happening, it's just not the change Obama anticipated.
Speaking of the HRC Lynch Mob....
Poor Jennifer had to make a taxpayer funded trip to Ireland to beg for lawyers to help her. She realizes that her credibility is nil, so she is asking lawyers, who have so much more credibility (HA) to take up the banner and fight for her organization, not the people who might be discriminated against.
Lynch told the gathering that opponents of rights bodies have successfully created a "chill" that makes it difficult for anyone to defend those bodies without also becoming a target.
Lynch, saying some criticisms have been "troubling" and "at times scary," also read out a graphic anonymous letter she received stating that she should be shot dead.
"I'm here to ask for your help," Lynch told CBA members, noting that academic experts, law school deans, and senior lawyers are among Canada's "most trusted sources of information" on public policy matters.
She urged them to write "letters to correct misinformation," encourage other experts to participate in the debate and promote public education of the role of rights commissions and tribunals in the justice system.
Lawyers are the "most trusted" sources of information?? What is she smoking? Lawyers are below politicians on the trust scale. If the attacks are so wrong, why didn't she ask the lawyers to sue all those people attacking the HRC's? What misinformation? The HRC's are so quick to convict innocent people, they should have no problem convicting those 2000 people they have on their "hit" list. If they are righteous fighters of human rights, why are they unable to defend what they do? Why have they not sued Ezra for all the misinformation in his book "Shakedown"?
Thought so, if there was one wrongly placed comma in Ezra's book, they would have been on it like flies on poop. What this affirms is that the Lynch's of the HRC's have overstepped their bounds and are now begging anyone, even lawyers, to help them get out of the mess they themselves created. Oh, how the crass little kingdom builders have fallen...and they can't get up!
