ACLU Gets a Big NO!!

It is good to see the ACLU lose a case, and it is GREAT to see them lose one over prayer, as happened in Delaware.
(AgapePress) - A judge has tossed out a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union challenging prayers at school board meetings in Delaware. The lawsuit was filed against members of the Indian River School District Board of Education, a group that regularly opens its business meetings with prayer.

Judge Joseph Farnan ruled that the school board meeting prayers are not a violation of the constitutional provision often referred to as the separation of church and state or the "Establishment Clause," as the ACLU had argued. He also determined that the school board members are immune from the ACLU's liability claims.

In dismissing the case against the individual board members, the judge stated that opening a session of the legislature or other deliberative public body with a prayer does not violate the Establishment Clause. He also declared that absolute immunity extends to legislators at all levels of government, including school board members in Delaware.

The ACLU has been trying to wipe out Christianity in America, and they have had some good successes. But now the trend is starting to go back the other way, and I as a Christian and American am happy to see the ACLU lose this kind of case. People should be able to say a pray before a meeting at school or anywhere they want, the Establishment Clause is bunk, and the ACLU has been pushing this bunk through using weak-kneed activist judges. It is good to see a judge with the cojones to stand up to these tyrants and say - You're Wrong!! And saying prayers before a Gov't meeting IS acceptable. Right On Judge Farnan!!
