High School Football Team Thumbs Nose at Wokeness with Team Prayer on Field

A high school football team in Tennessee took a stand against the school district’s edict outlawing religious freedom and decided to hold a team prayer right on the field last week.

The Putnam County School District jumped into action a week ago to inform its schools that religious observance is illegal on school properties, Fox 17 reported. The edict to quash religious freedom issued by district officials came on the heels of reports that student athletes and coaches at Cookeville and Upperman high schools had been seen engaging in prayer during football games.

The district issued a statement saying that students praying during games is illegal “proselytizing” of religion.

“The case law not allowing prayer or proselytizing is clear. Courts have consistently ruled that prayer and proselytizing can not be sponsored by schools or school personnel,” the district said in a statement issued after the left-wing, Christian-hating group Americans United for Separation of Church and State. filed a complaint.

But even after telling students they had no religious freedom at school, the district spoke out of the other side of its collective mouth and added, “As a district, we absolutely understand the importance of prayer in the lives of our students, faculty, and staff members. We support the right of students to participate in and lead spontaneous prayers. That right is and will continue to be protected.”

Yeah. Riiight.

Students and parents at Upperman’s game against Stone Memorial, though, didn’t seem to care what the district said. They held a prayer circle during the game anyway:

After the mass prayer demonstration against the school’s unconstitutional suppression of religion, one Facebook user rejoiced saying, “Satan’s power was defeated tonight.”

The U.S. Constitution says freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM it.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
