Two for two in pious Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana
I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this one. How can a bible-beating bumf*ck place like this make it in the news twice in one week? This story cannot possibly dethrone the news about the sick, beast-f*cking predatory pedophiles of Hosanna Church, but it’s clear that, not surprisingly, these folks also have issues with church-state, as well as man-dog, separation.
The American Civil Liberties Union has asked a federal judge to jail public school teachers and administrators for allegedly violating a court-imposed ban on school prayers. It’s the fourth time the ACLU has told Judge Ginger Berrigan that officials in Louisiana’s Tangipahoa Parish are flouting her prayer ban. This time, the ACLU says an elementary school teacher repeatedly held prayers in her fourth-grade class, encouraged students to bring their Bibles to school, held Bible studies in the school cafeteria and admonished students who did not show up. In addition, the ACLU cites a prayer “in Jesus’ name” that was recently given over a high school’s public address system while the principal sat by silently. The ACLU says school officials’ violation of the prayer ban “must result in their removal from society.”
