In the News - Teacher's hide in closet to pray

According to the article: 'ACLU-crafted court order criminalizes Christianity', any prayer, discussion of the Bible or God inside or even outside of school in one's own home, can be punishable by law in the state of Florida for teachers and staff in the Santa Rosa county school district.  Two students sued the school anonymously when teachers were caught praying outside of school hours, and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) jumped in to craft a 'Consent Decree' to affirmatively ban all prayer or religious talk inside or outside of school, even in one's own home.  Teachers are not even allowed to reply to parent e-mails if the parent e-mail in any way refers to the Bible, God, or scripture, even in the signature.  Two teachers took to hiding in a closet to pray for fear of being punished and taken to jail.  The 'Consent Decree' is in clear violation of the first amendment, and is currently being fought in court for violation of first amendment rights. If this is not overturned, it may set a precedent as to what new laws will be set against Christianity, Bible study, and prayer in other states, in a public institution, or in one's own home.  To read the full article visit HERE.
