Here’s another oh-so inclusive activity from a school in Missouri:
...video surfaced of evangelical pastors leading students in prayer in Hollister, Missouri during lunchtime in the school cafeteria.
As it turns out, school officials actually allow this a few times a week, and the Christian group that proselytizes to the students is the only religious group that has been allowed to interact with students on public ground that is supposed to be secular.
Why, Christians? Just why? What makes you so special that makes you think this is OK?
…(the) goal is to indoctrinate kids into Christianity at a young age, because as Branson Junior High Principal Bryan Bronn said in 2014,
“Somebody once told me that if you wanted to reach students and you wanted to be serious about being, as Jesus called us to be, fishers of men, then you need to be serious about where the fish are at. And we all know that fish travel in… schools.”
Wow. You just cherry-pick a shiny thing in your book of fairy tales, and you think it means to teach children how to be little Christians. You’re not cute, and you’re not amusing. You’re a pest, and so are all the rest of you Christians to think it’s OK to infringe upon the rights of a child with a conscience. Because they have them. You may be the majority faith, but you are not the only one and it’s very uncool to assume that everyone is.
Video of the prayer is at the link, as is a takedown of Bristol Palin.
Another Christian, putting his bullshit where it isn’t wanted:
An employee of the Kansas’ Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office says she was fired from her job for not belonging to or attending a church.
Courtney Canfield claims that before she was fired in November of 2013, Rucker said “repeatedly and emphatically” that she was being terminated because “She just doesn’t go to a church.”
“The problems began in February of 2013, when Canfield was invited to a church service by a staffer working for Rucker. That happened multiple times but she never went. Despite being a Methodist, she wasn’t particularly religious.”
Amazing. She wasn’t even an atheist-but she wasn’t his type of bumptious Christian. I’m so tired of fucking evangelical assholes.
I’ve typed it before and I’ll type it again, with emphasis: KEEP YOUR SHIT TO YOURSELF. NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR “THE WORD” WHEN IT IS WORK TIME, GOVERNMENT TIME, OR SCHOOL TIME. GO TO YOUR CHURCH, WORSHIP YOUR SKY DADDY, SAY YOUR PRAYERS AT NIGHT, AND LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE.
