Smells Like Teen Holy Spirit
How stupid – how abjectly, monumentally fucking stupid – do you have to be to think that this banner belongs at a public school’s football game:
Precisely this stupid, actually:
The cheerleaders are not trying to push a religious cause, to shove religion down someone’s throat,” said local youth minister Brad Scott, who was LFO High’s class president in 2004. “The cheerleaders are just using Scripture to show motivation and inspiration to the players and the fans.
The rest of the article contains plenty more contempt for the Constitution from the mucky-mucks at the Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School in Tennessee. Take the superintendent’s posture. Please. She claimed to personally support the signs, but professionally acknowledge that there just might be something expensive about retaining them.
Personally, I appreciate this expression of their Christian values; however, as superintendent I have the responsibility of protecting the school district from legal action by groups who do not support their beliefs.
What a cunty, cunty thing to say. She should be proudly upholding the separation of superstition and state, not protecting the district from legal action. Fuck her.
And fuck the mayor, who said, “If it’s offensive to anyone, let them go watch another football game. Nobody’s forced to come there and nobody’s forced to read the signs.”
I can’t stand it, and neither can my snarling chihuahuas. Anyone want to take bets on how well this school’s graduates understand evolution?
