  • "It has always been the custom atRoane County High School
    football games, to say a

    prayer and play the National Anthem, to

    honor God and Country."

  • Due to a recent ruling by theSupreme Court,

    I am told that saying a Prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law.
    As I

    understand the law at this time, I can use this public

    facility to approve of sexual perversion and call it "an

    alternate life style," and if someone is offended, that's OK.

  • I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity, by dispensing condoms
    and calling

    it, "safe sex..." If someone is offended, that's OK.

  • I can even use this public facility to

    present the merits of killing an unborn baby as a "viable! means
    of

    birth control." If someone is offended, no problem...

  • I can designate a school day as "Earth Day"

    and involve students in activities to worship religiously and
    praise the

    goddess "Mother Earth" and call

    it "ecology.."

  • I can use literature, videos and presentations in the classroom
    that depicts

    people with strong, traditional Christian convictions as "simple

    minded" and "ignorant" and call it

    "enlightenment.."







    However, if anyone uses this facility to honor GOD and to ask
    HIM to Bless

    this event with safety and good sportsmanship,

    then Federal Case Law is violated..


    This appears to
    be inconsistent at best, and at worst, diabolical.






    Apparently,

    we are to be tolerant of everything and anyone, except GOD
    and HIS

    Commandments.

  • Nevertheless , as a school principal, I frequently ask staff and
    students to

    abide by rules with which they do not necessarily agree. For me to
    do

    otherwise would be inconsistent at best, and at worst, hypocritical...
    I

    suffer from that affliction enough unintentionally. I certainly
    do not need

    to add an intentional transgression.







    For this reason, I shall "Render unto Caesar that which is

    Caesar's," and refrain from praying at this time.

  • "However, if you feel inspired to honor, praise and thank GOD
    and ask

    HIM, in the name of JESUS, to Bless this

    event, please feel free to do so.
    As far

    as I know, that's not against the law----yet."

  • One by one, the people in the stands bowed their heads, held hands
    with one

    another and began to pray.







    They prayed in the stands... They prayed in the team huddles. They
    prayed at

    the concession stand and they prayed in the

    Announcer's Box!
