ACLU threat prompts school to ban postgame prayer

ACLU threat prompts school to ban postgame prayer

A Michigan high school recently joined the long list of organizations unwilling to stand up to bullies on the godless left. The Lahser High School football team has a long tradition of leading an invocation, which is open to anyone on either team, following games.

Unsurprisingly, the American Civil Liberties Union suffered a collective conniption and filed a complaint in an effort to put the kibosh on the practice. Administrators, including head coach Dan Loria, immediately obliged.

Conceding the postgame prayer is “something that somebody wanted to do every year,” Loria was overly apologetic for his role in the manufactured controversy.

Claiming he “lost sight of it” because of the ceremonial aspect of the tradition, the coach said he should not have allowed his players to express their faith in the first place. Hoping to placate the godless bullies targeting his team, Loria confirmed he was only present during the prayers and never took a leadership role.

“By me being present, I was encouraging it,” he said. “This happened because of me and I had to wake up.”

Finding an area of agreement, I also believe it is time to wake up. While countless other groups receive special consideration from our government, Christians are told they must remain silent regarding their convictions.

This, of course, is contrary to Christ’s instruction to “go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Whether bureaucrats in Washington and shyster ACLU lawyers will admit it or not, there is a higher authority to whom even they will one day answer. In the meantime, believers must be vigilant in reflecting the Light of Jesus to a dark and bitter world.
