Star Provides Place for Anti Prayer Group to Advertise Report by Robert A. Williams

This is the kind of Bul-lony you find on the Shelby Star’s Facebook page. The post is full of inaccuracies and distortions, but not a word from the Star about that. The Star has long advocated drugs, prostitution, gay rights, same sex marriage, gambling, drinking and all sort of other sinful perversions and activities, while banning Christian discussion. Now they give space to a bunch of infidels whose obvious purpose is the destruction of the American Way. Shame on the Star and the School Board candidates that support the kind of thinking put out by this bunch of atheists.

From the Star’s Facebook account.

Annette Henriquez “Public school boards are an integral part of the public school system and must not advance or endorse religion. School boards cannot schedule prayer as a part of their meetings, invite local clergy to give invocations, or engage in religious ritual at any time during school-sponsored board meetings.

While the U.S. Supreme Court has allowed prayers to be held as part of state legislative and local council meetings, those decisions do not grant blanket approval for prayer by school boards. The Court’s decision in Town of Greece v. Galloway, permitted sectarian legislative prayers at a town’s meetings. The justices noted that the legal question was “fact sensitive” and depended upon “both the setting in which the prayer arises and the audience to whom it is directed.” 134 S.Ct. 1811, 1825 (2014); Id. at 1838 (Breyer, J., dissenting); Id. at 1851 (Kagan, J., dissenting).
