American Hero

Jessica Alquist is very courageous young lady attending a high school in Rhode Island — and a true American Hero for defending our constitution.  She was raised as a Catholic but at the age of 10 or 11 chose to become an Atheist.  Cranston High, a public school had a religious banner hanging in the auditorium for years.  Ms. Alquist, deciding that having a religious banner in a public school was unconstitutional and asked the board that it be removed.  They did not.

Jessica, and the American Civil Liberties Union took the case to court.  Note that there are religious schools in the United States where one can go and get a religious education, if that is the desire.  In any case a reading of the first amendment shows that it is clearly unconstitutional to have one particular brand of religion — or any religion — supported by a public institution.

The lawyer for the defense (the high school) said, among other things said that, “We’ve always done it that way”.  Now there is a powerful defense.  It could serve as a defense for burning witches, drowning heretics, continuing slavery, and the inquisition. It is truly a “one fits all” defense.  The court, however, ruled that:  no amount of history and tradition can cure a constitutional infraction. The Court concludes that Cranston’s purposes in installing and, more recently, voting to retain the Prayer Mural are not clearly secular.

The school wasted a lot of money on defending something that was clearly illegal.  Ms. Alquist is a true American Hero.

The principle and school board should be fired for allowing the school district to waste all that money on legal fees for something that was indefensible!

I hope that you are reading a few of the Facebook comments (right) on an empty stomach.  They sure sicken me.

It is apparent that these students only believe in tolerance so long as their religion is allowed to violate the constitution.  Or, maybe they don’t believe in the constitution at all.

I guess the students, as well as the school board must have been absent for the hour that the American Constitution was studied.  The judge,  Ronald Rene Lagueux by the way, was appointed by that noted left wing commie pinko liberal activist, Ronald Reagan.

Read the comments.  Feel the love.

  1. Oh yes, a startling indictment of the paradoxes in Christian culture.

  2. Bravo! Good for Jessica! —For those morons in America who pretend that Christians are all one happy family, your ignorance of history is simply appalling. I was raised Catholic and I was taught to hate all non-Catholics. So watch out you scum bag Protestants who do not acknowledge the Pope, the Virgin Mary and all of our Catholic saints. We will hunt you down and burn you at the stake like we did in Europe in the 15th century., and this time we will get you ALL. —-Knowing the history of Christianity makes me appreciate somebody like Jessica Alquist. She is probably a far better person than most Christians I know.
