Reply to "Group complains about Brooks’ pregame prayers"

Brooks and other Lauderdale county schools will have moments of silence replacing official prayers in order to return to compliance with the law. Get used to it. City schools won't be far behind them.

 

Should Brooks or private individuals decide to pursue this matter legally they will be spanked and shown their place. In the process, they'll create even more precedent to bolster the Constitutional mandate of separation of state and church, making it easier for future Mr. Greens. Like I said, get used to it. Eventually, modernity catches up with us in the South and it affects the way we do things. This will be yet another lesson learned (but resented as usual).

Robustus, you are the MAN!   You have said in the above post just about all that needed to be said on this issue.  The law is indeed the law and the constitution is indeed the constitution and both law and constitution guarantee that the unconstitutional Brooks High School practice of government-sponsored prayer will be discontinued one way or another.  Either the school system will respond intelligently and stop the practice or the matter will go to court and the court will order them to stop. Depending on which of these outcomes prevails, the dispirited theocrats will condemn school officials or the court as feckless cowards and fellow travelers of atheism.  End of story, notwithstanding all the theocratic ranting that has irrelevantly cluttered the issue and irrespective of all the ignorant emotional diatribes posted here and on the Facebook site created by whatever passionately misinformed advocate got his/her panties in a wad over this losing cause.
