We Have Our Work Cut Out for Us


Have Our Work Cut Out for Us…Football Coaches at Westmoreland Junior High
School Can’t Bow Their Heads During Prayer by Order Of Jeremy Johnson, Sumner
County Schools Spokesman


taught school for thirty years, and having been part of high school
administration, I can’t ever recall sending a student to the principal’s office
for bowing his head during prayer. The headline of a recent issue of The
Westmoreland Observer reads, “Coaches Called to Principal’s Office for Bowing
Heads During Post-game Prayer”. Mr. Johnson said, “We cannot give the
appearance of the endorsement of religion.” What a sad, sad story, that the
anti-God element in America is using the public school system to eradicate
knowledge of God from the minds of our children. And what is even sadder is
that educators are willing to assist the atheists and liberals in their assault
on God.


some school systems in America, Muslims are given time to put their knees in
pillars and pray to Allah, but sincere coaches and teachers can’t bow their
heads out of respect for God and Christ.


recently, the Air Force has banned a class of the Christian-based “Just War
Theory” because the class used verses from the Bible. Make no mistake about it,
the Muslims are behind some of this opposition to God in America, for Allah is
their God and they deny Jesus is the Son of God. Last week, Iran had scheduled
the execution of a preacher in Iran because he converted to Christianity. So,
President Bush and President Obama, Islam is a religion of peace, you say? We
have our work cut out for us. The Apostles were right when they said, “We must
obey God rather than man.” By the way, I am going to continue to bow my head
and keep my Bible on my desk.
