The godless extremists in the Freedom From Religion Foundation are notoriously unsatisfied with the extent to which faith has already been relegated in our society.
While deep blue states have effectively removed God from any and all public forums, the FFRF often ventures into more traditional states to coerce them to do the same.
One of the group’s most recent targets is the Riverside School District in Arkansas – specifically, a sixth-grade graduation event that typically features a prayer involving students.
Superintendent Tommy Knight said that he and the school board decided to cancel the ceremony at a recent meeting, which included a number of upset parents in attendance.
Kelly Adams, one such concerned parent, said she thinks that “there were a lot of people hurt that our rights were taken away.”
The atheist group claimed to be representing an unidentified individual who complained about the prayer, though an affiliated attorney wrote that it “makes no difference how many families want prayer or wouldn’t be offended by prayer at their graduation ceremony.”
The left often reads the Constitution only partially – and out of context – to support their own ideology. Atheist groups are among the loudest and most frequent offenders as they seek to distort the opinions of our founders and subsequent courts in their mission to erase any vestige of God from the American landscape.
Disappointing an entire sixth-grade class is nothing in the pursuit of their solitary goal.
