The Thomas More Law Center is representing a Charles County family in their action against La Plata High School. An eleventh -grade student was being forced in her "World History" class to make affirmations of islamic doctrine. Her father, a Marine veteran who saw action in the middle east and saw first-hand muslim brutality, took issue with the school administration. For his efforts he found himself banned from school property. The young lady refused to carry out the brainwashing exercise and received failing grades. Read this account; you'll see how the students were forced to affirm islam, even though religion and state are ostensibly held separate. Or does that theory only hold when the religion in question is Christianity?
Speaking of not mixing Church and state, church-goers in neighboring Prince George's County may want to be alert to an increase in envirowhackoism spewing forth from the pulpits. Churches in Prince George's county will see reductions in their "rain tax" IF they institute "green ministries" and incorporate "environmentalism" into sermons. I'm not sure whether this is governmental 1) blackmail or 2) bribery. At any rate, churches will see a reduction in an already immoral tax if they allow the county government to set the tone of what is preached from the pulpit. Ladies and gentlemen, the First Amendment was written to prevent such governmental intrusions into church affairs as this obviously is.
If any local Catholic churches exhibit evidence of such blackmail, would you please advise us via comments? Thank you.
