Speak of God & Jesus at Tennessee Football

Subject:   Tennessee Football !
This is a statement that was read over the PA system at the football game at Roane County High School , Kingston , Tennessee , by school Principal, Jody McLeod

“It
has always been the custom at Roane County High School football games, to say
a prayer and play the National Anthem, to honor God and
Country.”

Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told
that saying a Prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law. As I understand the
law at this time, I can use this public facility to approve of sexual
perversion and call it “an alternate life style,” and if someone is offended,
that’s OK.

I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity, by
dispensing condoms and calling it, “safe sex..” If someone is offended, that’s
OK.

I can even use this public facility to present the merits of
killing an unborn baby as a “viable! means of birth control.” If someone is
offended, no problem…

I can designate a school day as “Earth
Day” and involve students in activities to worship religiously and praise the
goddess “Mother Earth” and call it “ecology.”

I can use
literature, videos and presentations in the classroom that depicts people with
strong, traditional Christian convictions as “simple minded” and “ignorant”
and call it “enlightenment..”

However, if anyone uses this
facility to honor GOD and to ask HIM to Bless this event with safety and good
sportsmanship, then Federal Case Law is violated..

This appears
to be inconsistent at best, and at worst, diabolical.


Apparently,
we are to be tolerant of everything and anyone, except GOD and HIS
Commandments.

Nevertheless , as a school principal, I frequently
ask staff and students to abide by rules with which they do not necessarily
agree. For me to do otherwise would be inconsistent at best, and at worst,
hypocritical…. I suffer from that affliction enough unintentionally. I
certainly do not need to add an intentional transgression.

For
this reason, I shall “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s,” and refrain
from praying at this time.

“However, if you feel inspired to
honor, praise and thank GOD and ask HIM, in the name of JESUS, to Bless this
event, please feel free to do so
. As
far as I know, that’s not against the law—-yet.”

One by one,
the people in the stands bowed their heads, held hands with one another and
began to pray.

They prayed in the stands. They prayed in the team
huddles. They prayed at the concession stand and they prayed in the
Announcer’s Box!

The only place they didn’t pray was in the
Supreme Court of the United States of America- the Seat of “Justice” in the
“one nation, under GOD.”

Somehow, Kingston , Tennessee Remembered
what so many have forgotten.. We are given the Freedom OF Religion, not the
Freedom
 FROM Religion.
Praise GOD that HIS remnant remains!

JESUS said, “If you are
ashamed of ME before men, then I will be ashamed of you before MY
FATHER..” 

If
you are not ashamed, pass this on ..
