Because freedom can't protect itself
Congratulations Jon and Amy! From the very start, this victory was your right.
TY for not giving up on this. You've changed many many lives now and for the future.
YAY!!!!!!!! Go Andersons! Y'all totally rock. BIG two thumbs up.
Yay! This is awesome!
Good for you! In-school suspension for not participating in unconstitutional religious assemblies is beyond wrong.
So thrilled for them! Woohoo!
This doesn't mean no religion....it means no establishment of official religion. Schools nationwide: take note!
Great job! Way to go! That school district ought to be ashamed of itself!
If you don't like it MOVE! ACLU destroys American freedom!!!
So brave to hide behind an anonymous id. What if the children had to sit though a pagan, muslim, or jewish assembly? Should all dissenters "MOVE!" as you emphatically put it? Really mature argument from you, if you don't agree with me, get out! Too bad for you that the Constitution supports separation of religion and state:(
These "Christians" believe it's their religious right to trample on others freedom. This is wrong and sick. Forcing non Christian students to participate in their religion is legally and morally wrong on all accounts.
This is not an attack on Christianity. This is a defense of students from the Christian zealots who don't respect the rights of others.
