In her stunning new masterpiece of conservative prose, Ann Coulter calls liberals in the United States “godless.” In fact, Ann uses this interesting fact as the title to her outstanding book: Godless: The Church of Liberalism.Ann is dead on!Example number one comes from Foothill High School in Clark County, Nevada. Brittany McComb, the senior class valedictorian, recently had her speech cut short by school officials for the sin of having thanked God and Jesus. She also had a couple of references to the Bible in her speech, but she wasn’t able to get that far.
“I went through four years of school at Foothill and they taught me logic and they taught me freedom of speech,” McComb told a crowd of proud parents and teachers. “God's the biggest part of my life. Just like other valedictorians thank their parents, I wanted to thank my lord and savior.”
That’s when the liberals pulled the plug.
It is children like Brittany McComb who make Christian pastors flush crimson with pride. She is so unlike many high school kids these days (such as young boys who drop out of school and move to big cities in order to sell their tight, little packages to older men in dark, seedy alleys for much too much money). No, Brittany McComb is a breath of fresh air and Christians should rally behind this little firecracker.
The liberal school administrators had a different agenda, however. They immediately turned off Brittany’s microphone and ended her speech early. The parents in the audience jeered the decision – but school administrators were adamant that God and Jesus would not be allowed to be mentioned at the school graduation. Typical. Despite making up more than 76 percent of the United States population, Christians continue to be a persecuted minority. Rest assured that if Brittany had tried to thank Allah or Satan there would not have been a peep from school administrators.
But for some reason God, Jesus and the Bible get liberals’ blood boiling.The Nevada ACLU general counsel explained to the Las Vegas Review-Journal: “It's important for people to understand that a student was given a school-sponsored forum by a school and therefore, in essence, it was a school-sponsored speech. There should be no controversy here.”This might sound logical to people with college educations or people who have read the U.S. Constitution, but don’t be fooled by their supposed facts. An anti-Christian lawyer from Little Rock also told me that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals prohibited “preaching” during graduation speeches in two cases in 2000 and 2003 (the 2003 case was also upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, blah, blah, blah).You see what I mean? Liberals like to put their “spin” on these cases while, in fact, they are guilty of crushing Christianity under the heels of their black leather boots.School officials are also falling back on the lame excuse that Brittany defied their authority after she was expressly told by them that her commencement address went beyond thanking God and Jesus and into preaching. She was told to use an edited and approved copy of her speech, but Brittany disobeyed them. But that is nonsense because Brittany said she did it because – and I quote this young lady who is a shining example of a good Christian directly:“People aren't stupid and they know we have freedom of speech and the district wasn't advocating my ideas. Those are my opinions. It's what I believe.”Obviously, this is an intelligent, little filly! (And she is quite the looker if you’ve seen her photograph. Any burly, strapping varsity football player would be excited to the Nth degree to take this young, God-loving "chick" to the prom!).
I urge my fellow Christians to demean the ACLU at every chance and to tell your liberal friends that God loves them even though they continue to turn their backs on Christianity – the religion that put Europe and America on the map! Now that’s a religion that deserves our thanks!
