Even the reddest of redstates are not immune to the ravages of the secular left hell-bent on removing the last vestiges of Judeo-Christian values from Western society.
Witness the fight on the campus of East Central University in Oklahoma where the uber-liberal attorneys for Americans United for Separation of Church and State are threatening a lawsuit if the university fails to remove all crosses and Bibles from its campus.
Because it receives federal funds, the group argues in typical liberal, Constitution-contorting fashion that it violates the so-called ‘separation of church and state,’ a phrase which any civically minded American knows cannot be found anywhere in the actual Constitution.
However the group is really just a front for the usual suspects in the hard-left’s movement of pro-choice, pro-gay, anti-faith, ant-gun fanaticism.
But now the university is getting pushback from the conservative majority in the state, which means it could end up in court.
Let’s hope it goes to the Supreme Court to finally end this pseudo-legal debate.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
An Oklahoma public university is reconsidering its original decision to remove religious articles from its chapel after it received a complaint from an organization that describes itself as a “national religious liberty watchdog group.”
On Friday East Central University (ECU) announced it was putting a halt to its removal of religious articles, such as bibles and crosses, from its Kathryn P. Boswell Memorial Chapel and steeple, until receiving feedback from students and faculty.
“We moved too quickly,” said Katricia Pierson, ECU president. “We regret not taking time to pause and thoughtfully consider the request and the results of our actions on all of the students, faculty and community members who we serve.”
Pierson said the school began removing the religious items after receiving a complaint from Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a group that says it “envision[s] an America where everyone can freely choose a faith and support it voluntarily, or follow no religious or spiritual path at all, and where the government does not promote religion over non-religion or favor one faith over another.”
