Ohio School To Remove Ten Commandments Plaque On Display For Almost 100 Years After Atheist Group Whines

Oh look. More angry atheists.

There’s nothing more obnoxious than a group of hypocritical angry atheists who whine and moan about how plaques and monuments with nods to Christianity are forcing religion down their throats, all the while they’re attempting to force their godless worldview down on the public at large.

This is exactly what’s happening in Ohio where a school is removing a plaque featuring the Ten Commandments, which has been on display for almost 100 years, to assuage the tender feelings of an atheist group.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

CBN notes that the complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) was triggered by a disgruntled parent of a child at Welty Middle School in New Philadelphia. FFRF’s April 12 letter stated that the plaque was a “flagrant violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment,” adding, “The district’s promotion of the Judeo-Christian bible and religion over nonreligion impermissibly turns any non-Christian or non-believing student into an outsider. Schoolchildren already feel significant pressure to conform to their peers. They must not be subjected to similar pressure from their schools, especially on religious questions.”

As the Times-Reporter noted, New Philadelphia Schools Superintendent David Brand issued a statement explaining why the district complied with the demand for the plaque’s removal and argued that the district simply could not afford to challenge FFRF:

Rather than meeting with the District to begin a dialogue, FFRF sent a letter from its office in Wisconsin and then used the local media to further the issue. Since receiving the letter, the District has gathered more information, listened to interested community members, and reviewed its options. As background, the plaque was a gift from the Class of 1926 to the District in 1927. To the best of its knowledge, the District believes the plaque has been displayed in the District ever since. With over 90 years on display, the plaque is recognized as part of the tradition and history of New Philadelphia City Schools.

While the plaque is a well-established and historic piece of New Philadelphia City Schools history, the laws of the United States are pretty clear regarding the display of the Ten Commandments in a school setting. To preserve the plaque, the District would need to overturn a U.S. Supreme Court decision from 1980. Additionally, the District would need to become the first public school to successfully defend a Ten Commandments display in a school setting.

Despite offers from local law professionals to help the district, the ‘costs’ of defending are substantial. In addition to funding multi-year litigation, the District will divert staff, time, and energy from the District’s true purpose — student learning. Even more troubling, if the District’s case is unsuccessful as all other school cases have been, FFRF can seek for the District to pay FFRF’s legal fees, which have in at least one instance, exceeded $900,000.00. Clearly, challenging the issue legally would be an enormous risk and burden to the local taxpayers.

The District will review the process to donate the plaque to preserve the history of the 92-year-old Ten Commandments plaque. Furthermore, rather than engaging FFRF in an action where the community’s resources are at stake, the District will consider filing an amicus brief in a forthcoming case on the matter. While members of the District do not agree with FFRF’s conduct, the District believes acting on its own terms is the most effective way to oppose FFRF and to continue to serve its students.

Atheists try to pretend they are freethinkers that have no religion, but their adherence the tenets of science and humanism are just as much the practicing of a religion as going to church, reading the Bible, and prayer.

The thing here isn’t that atheists aren’t religious. They are. The problem is they don’t want to admit that they want to see their worldview be the dominant one that everyone believes.

It’s not that they want to eradicate religion. They just want to force their own on the public. Which, ironically, is exactly what they are hating on Christians for doing by having a plaque like this in a school.

It’s absurd. Totally, utterly, absurd.

Nowhere in the Constitution or the writings of the founders does it say that religious beliefs shouldn’t have anything to do with politicals in the public square. The whole separation of church and state is a principle that was designed to prevent the government from picking a particular denomination of Christianity and making it the official church of the country.

If these folks understood history, they’d know this already.

Unhinged? Just a little bit…

From our friends at DC Dirty Laundry: Wow! Many are celebrating this woman pushing a priest off a stage in Brazil. The mass was being broadcast widely and word has it that she did it because… Well… Here’s Gary to tell you why… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJFiE5TQm9c So injuring priests is now celebrated in the LGBT community? Seriously? This unidentified woman is now a hero to lesbians and gays all over the world. But come on! Is this how you make a point? Violence against a priest who just ran a youth camp for 50,000 kids is evil. Horrifying children to make your point? Unbelievable! More from Newsweek: Brazilian priest who is celebrated in the country for his lively sermons was violently pushed from a stage yesterday while delivering mass in Cachoeira Paulista, São Paulo. The incident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. after a woman was able to rush past security and approach Father Marcelo Rossi during a ceremony at the headquarters of Canção Nova, which is a Brazilian Catholic community known for broadcasting religious material online. Rossi, a preaching powerhouse who has reportedly sold millions of musical records in Brazil and was once dubbed a “pop-star priest” by the Associated Press, was seen in video footage of the unexpected mass invasion toppling from the stage as onlookers watched on in shock. Another video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sy9tuV32Ie0 The thing, the priest will instantly forgive this deranged radical lunatic because he’s a good man. And yet, the clearly liberal protester will not care.
