Did you see the news? As reported by B.J. Williams of WDUN radio and Todd Starnes of Fox News, the American Humanist Association (AHA) sent a letter on behalf of ONE, that’s right, ONE unnamed citizen demanding that the football coaching staff stop participating in team prayers and that they remove all biblical references and religious messages from team documents. It seems what got the AHA ticked off is the team workout schedule included the words “Fortitude 2014, Gal. 6:9” and the cheerleaders wrote a Bible verse on a large banner: “Iron Sharpens Iron, Proverbs 21:17.” Well bless their God un-fearing hearts.
We saw this coming a mile away. The good folks in Gainesville, GA take their football and their Jesus seriously and don’t “cotton” to a bunch of football/Jesus hating whiners telling them what to do. On Wednesday morning more than 200 people showed up for an impromptu prayer/pep/support/run a play up the middle rally.
Gainesville School System Superintendent Will Schofield told WDUN they would investigate the claims of the atheists . He also added, “Unfortunately when school systems get letters like this and people start rattling sabers, usually the first reaction by a lot of school districts is, ‘Oh my goodness, we don’t want to be in the news. We don’t want to be sued, so we better stop doing whatever we are doing,’” he said. “I don’t think that will be the first reaction of the Hall County School Board.
How do you like that? A man that actually stands up for and by his convictions. Send that Superintendent a case of steaks and Pabst Blue Ribbon. He is my new hero.
Take that you bullies!
