ACLU Prepares to Defend the Offended

As was expected, the ACLU has announced that they have received a complaint about the “religious activities” at our local graduation ceremonies. The person, who remains unnamed, claimed they were “very disturbed” by what happened.

Evidently, God is very disturbing. Jesus is very disturbing. Putting faith in a higher power and acknowledging Him publicly is very disturbing.

I guess I don't know what is disturbing. You see, I think homosexual marriage is disturbing. I think Muslims chopping off people's heads is disturbing. To me, child pornography is disturbing. But evidently, I don't really understand the concept of being "very disturbed".


The local ACLU Director was quoted as saying, “Just because you’re the majority, it doesn’t give you the right to trample on the minority.” He called the prayers at the graduation “government sponsored religion.”

Trample on the minority? Show me the bruises. Prove the emotional scars. Prove that the students who led the prayers work for the government.

But of course, we’ll probably never know who this person is.


The ACLU Director indicated that they would probably file suit “using a pseudonym because people are very intimidated and afraid that if they speak up they will be ostracized and made to feel unwelcome in the community.”

Turns out the person who complained was not related to any of the graduates.

Why the heck did they come to the graduation then? Got nothin’ better to do on a Tuesday night than go to a high school graduation even though no one you are related to is graduating?

I smell a set up. In fact, I smell something worse than that.


For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Ephesians 6:12-13

OBviously, since the complaintant is not related to anyone in the school,the complaintant is a member of the ACLU, using this opportunity to:

1. Get his /her name in the paper

2. Cause trouble.

3. Get rich(er)

We'll probably never know who the complainant is, Mark. They're afraid of all those "mean Christians" out there who might hurt them if they find out.

I think I'm more disturbed about the minority trampling on the rights of the majority...

Sounds like a good time to call Liberty Council, or Jay Sekulow.

The Liberty Counsel has been contacted. We'll see what happens.

If only I could change everything I was "very disturbed" about...
