Allen West “Where is the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) on this one?”

Ladies and gents, we respect other cultures and belief systems, but we also should demand that our own be respected. ~ Allen West

As Written By Allen B. West:

I fully support all children in the United States having equal access to a quality education. And one part of that education should be centered on learning the American experience, our history, our fundamental principles and values. There is no doubt we’ve failed almost two generations in teaching them the basics — civics and such. And now as our open borders policy floods America with non-Americans, we have to ask, are we teaching or indoctrinating in our public school system?

Well, there’s one public school system in America bending over backwards to accommodate a group that presents a very interesting irony in our country.

As reported by PBS.org, “The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations filed a federal civil rights complaint against the St. Cloud school district in 2011, alleging a hostile environment for the district’s Somali students that included widespread and frequent harassment based in large measure, on religion. The majority of the Somali community is Muslim. Five years later, remnants of that tension remain.

“The St. Cloud school district is a long way away from really being a place where all students feel completely welcome,” said Jaylani Hussein, the executive director of the council’s Minnesota chapter.

In St. Cloud’s middle and high schools, the district allows prayer time for students, including Muslim students, as federal law requires. The rooms used for prayer are open to all students to observe their beliefs and are used for other purposes throughout the school day.

District wide, school lunch menus provide pork-free options for students, and staff members try to spur the newcomer students’ interest in sports, culture clubs, and other extracurricular activities to develop connections beyond the classroom.

Somali student-athletes played key roles on Apollo High’s 2014 state championship soccer team, and track and field teams have drawn plenty of Somali participants. The district has partnered with the University of Minnesota to develop uniforms for female athletes who wear hijab, the headscarves worn by some Muslim girls and women.”

And just so you know, the district provides prayer rugs. Now, can you imagine the same happening for Christians? Where is the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) on this one? The silence is deafening because if you were a Christian and tried to have prayer in the school, well, y’all know what would happen. How many times have we seen Christian coaches attacked for praying with their team? We brought you the story back in 2014 about what happened at the Madison County High School football stadium in Georgia where a monument — privately funded — displaying two Bible verses was ordered modified or removed.

Here is what the FFRF posted on its website after the decision: “The Freedom From Religion Foundation, has scored another victory for secularism in a public high school. The Madison, Wis.-based group has 21,500 members nationally, including over 400 members in Ga. Madison County School District in Danielsville, Ga., will either modify or remove an overtly religious monument at the Madison High School Football Stadium. FFRF became aware of the monument after a complaint was reported by a local resident who is affiliated with the athletic program. The monument was unveiled on Aug. 22, and currently sits at the team entrance to the field. The monument features the school’s logo alongside two prominent New Testament bible verses carved on the stone: Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” and Romans 8:31 “If God be for us who can be against us?” “Courts have continually held that school districts may not display religious messages or iconography in public schools.” Seidel also noted religious monuments divide teams: “This divisiveness is heightened by the particular passages displayed, ‘If God be for us, who could be against us,’ literally turns the student body into ‘us’ and them’—into Christians and everyone else. The import is clear, if you are not Christian, you are not a Red Raider.”

You see, for the radical secular humanist left, the existence of Christianity is divisive. It cannot be openly displayed. To the demented minds of these individuals there is no freedom of religion, unless it’s a religion they accept. You may have a freedom to worship but they’ll designate exactly where that worship can take place.

But Muslims get a free pass from the secular humanist left. Why? Why is it that the progressive socialists are so damned ready to attack Christians but will align themselves with the Islamists at every turn? Tell me how many Christian schools openly operate in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan where they can bring lawsuits forcing acceptance of their religious practices?

Meanwhile, back in Minnesota, “A 2011 settlement ending a federal civil rights investigation of the treatment of Somali students in St. Cloud requires the school district to report all allegations of harassment. Under the agreement, the district must make its schools more welcoming to Somalis. But the agreement didn’t signal an end to the resentment and clashes in the district. Last spring, racial and religious tensions at Technical High School erupted when students and parents, most of them Somali, alleged that school officials did not adequately respond to bullying incidents and anti-Islamic discrimination. A social media post that implied a Technical High student had ties to the Islamic State terrorist group whose adherents have been responsible for deadly attacks, sparked the protest.”

Interesting, the Somali community in Minnesota didn’t like the truth being …….

    Didn’t ya know, Col. West? It only counts if it’s Christianity.

    There is a blatant double standard regarding religion and the punishment of Christians for things Muslims are rewarded for…for instance a Christian baker doesn’t go against his religion and bake a wedding cake for a gay couple…fined $135,000. A Muslim must go against his religion and drive a beer truck at his job, he sues and is awarded $130,000.

  • Kate

    It is time for all religions, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and all others to join together and sue the government for their God given and Constitutional right to practice their religion wherever they choose. Additionally to feel free to display their beliefs however the choose…books, jewelry, pictures etc. Our Constitution guarantees freedom of religion not from religion.

  • Sgtsnuffy

    DO CHRISTIANS HAVE THEIR PRAYER ROOMS TOO ?????? IF NOT WHY NOT ???? ARE THE MUZZY’S THAT TERRIFYING A THREAT THAT A SCHOOL SYSTEM HAS TO ACCOMMODATE THEM OR FACE DESTRUCTION AND SLAUGHTER FROM THE LOCAL JIHADI’S ?????

  • peterp77

    The FFRF are a nasty far-left anti-Christian hate group masquerading as Constitutionalists. They would never go after Muslims the same way they go after Christians. They are hypocrites.

  • MajorMajor411

    The below should tell you EVERYTHING you perhaps know, or didn’t know about the FFRF:

    Co-founded by Anne Nicol Gaylor and her daughter, Annie Laurie Gaylor, in 1976 and incorporated nationally in 1978. The organization is supported by over 22,000 members and operates from an 1855-era building in Madison, Wisconsin, that once served as a church rectory. According to the 2011 IRS tax Form-990, FFRF spent just over $200,000 on legal fees and services and just under
    $1 million on education, outreach, publishing, broadcasting, and events. The allotment for legal fees is primarily used in cases supporting the separation of church and state that involve governmental entities. FFRF also has a paid staff of fourteen, including four full-time staff attorneys.

    Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the FFRF, is the author of Women Without Superstition: No Gods – No Masters and the nonfiction book on clergy pedophilia scandals Betrayal of Trust: Clergy Abuse of Children (out of print) and editor of the anthology Woe to the Women. She edited the FFRF newspaper Freethought until July, 2008. Her husband, Dan Barker, author of Losing Faith in Faith: From Preacher to Atheist, Godless: How an Evangelical Preacher Became One of America’s Leading Atheists, The Good Atheist: Living a Purpose-Filled Life Without God and Just Pretend: A Freethought Book for Children, is a musician and songwriter, a former Pentecostal Christian minister, and co-president of FFRF.

    In March 2011, FFRF, along with the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, began The Clergy Project, a confidential on-line community that supports clergy as they leave their faith. In 2012, it gave its first Freedom From Religion Foundation and Clergy Project “Hardship Grant” to Jerry DeWitt, a former pastor of 38 years who left the ministry to join the atheist movement.

    In June 2013 FFRF announced that, along with the Secular Student Alliance, it would work on educating students on their religious rights and would assist with rectifying violations.

    SO MUCH FOR FORMER PASTOR’S FROM THIS OUT OF CONTROL STATE OF WISCONSIN…who’ve been duped into believing Lyin-Cruz.

    • psychicbloodbrother

      Wisconsin is at the forefront of the fight against the unions and rolling back big government. Scott Walker has been doing an outstanding job in Wisconsin and the people in the state have been very active in fighting for America and are working to make America great. Its the people that make America great not a King. You lost me at the end of this rant when you made it political and accused a good honest decent man of lying then threw all of the people in Wisconsin under the bus in a marvelous false witness testimony. You should be ashamed of yourself for denigrating so many good honest and decent fellow American’s in support of a RINO candidate with a vacuous hope n change 2.0 message and no substance.

  • jh

    Lets be honest! It is not freedom from religion they want, it’s to trample Christianity and the rights of Christians. But take note: moving away from Christianity is a step backward and downward. Progressivism is not progress. We lose what makes us strong.

  • http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/ Kingdom Ambassador

    Could it be true? ATHEISTS and CHRISTIANS are in AGREEMENT when it comes to RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. Yes, you, read that correctly. They both erroneously believe religious freedom refers to Christian liberty.

    The atheists can and will do what they will. But, it’s time Christians to wake up to the fact that religious freedom and Christian liberty are not the same thing, and that religious freedom is what made it possible for groups such as FFRF to openly attack Christianity.

    “…Religious Freedom and Christian Liberty are not the same thing. They are, in fact, hostile to each other. The former [including the open proliferation of atheism] is born of the First Amendment. The latter is born of the First Commandment. In 1789, the First Commandment and Christian Liberty were formally sacrificed on the altar of the First Amendment and Religious Freedom.

    “When the 18th-century founders replaced the First Commandment (found intact in some 17th-century Colonial Constitutions) with the First Amendment, America was transformed from a predominantly monotheistic Christian nation (a united nation under one God) into arguably the most polytheistic nation to exist (a divided nation under many gods).

    “It’s one thing to allow for individual freedom of conscience and private choice of gods, something impossible to legislate for or against. It’s another matter altogether for government to enable any and all religions to proliferate through the land and evangelize our posterity to false gods. This is what the First Amendment legitimizes. It is an unequivocal violation of the First Commandment and the polar opposite of the following First Commandment statute:

    ‘[Y]e shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves. For thou shall worship no other god: for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou … go a whoring after their gods….’ (Exodus 34:13-15)….”

    • Grundune

      Ted R. Weiland, aka “Kingdom Ambassador” is a known cult leader who has developed his own gospel and has 5 to 7 bobble heads following him. He preaches the gospel of abolishing the U.S. Constitution.

      • Shirley Booth

        Grundune, the obsessed narcissist harassing Kingdom Ambassador for months now making one lying assertion after another: “known cult leader,” “has developed his own gospel,” “bobble heads following him,” “preaches the gospel of abolishing the U.S. Constitution.”

        You do know you’re going to have to face God one day, don’t you, Grundune the anonymous? Surely you know you’re not anonymous to Him.

        You seem to be having a great deal of trouble understanding that foreseeing a certain outcome is not the same as dedicating oneself to achieving that outcome. I believe you’ve said in every post for several months now something to the effect that Kingdom Ambassador has dedicated (or some synonym) himself to abolishing the US Constitution. (I believe you latched onto that idea as a rallying cry to gather followers, you hope, to shout him down.)

        Yet, I’ve never seen him promote abolishing the US Constitution. What I have seen him do is explain why that would accomplish nothing since it would only be replaced by some other manmade law leading to the same, or worse, failed outcome. So what does Kingdom Ambassador want? Pay attention to what he writes. He points out time and again the superiority of God’s law, which Psalm 19 says is perfect. When we stop rejecting Yahweh as our king, His law is waiting to bring us real safety, prosperity and justice.

        From the time you put together three facts:
        1) Kingdom Ambassador, aka Ted R. Weiland, is working to advance God’s kingdom on earth, ruled by our King, Jesus the Christ, through His (the King’s) perfect laws (Mt 6:10: “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”);
        2) the US Constitution with its humanistic laws is in conflict with God’s laws (Kingdom Ambassador: “…there’s hardly an Article or Amendment that’s not antithetical, if not seditious, to Yahweh’s sovereignty and morality”); and
        3) with the coming of God’s kingdom the US Constitution, along with all other idols, will fall,
        you’ve been in attack mode, going after the nearest proponent of that kingdom, Kingdom Ambassador, who is usually busy explaining the superiority of God’s laws, one by one as necessary, compared to man’s.

        The idea of living in God’s kingdom under his laws appears to have put you in a panic. You have made it clear in numerous posts that you look to the US Constitution as your protector, the source of
        your freedom and the provider of your prosperity and other good things. The fact that you and others look to the US Constitution for those things, along with its own claim of superiority, is what makes it an idol.

        You’ve had a problem with the idea that God’s kingdom actually
        is now growing on earth (Mt 13:31-32). Take note of the fact that the Bible never speaks of the kingdom in heaven, only the kingdom of heaven (God’s abode).

        As Ted R. Weiland helps awaken people to these facts, he is doing God’s work. As you try to destroy it, whose work are you doing?

        There is much more to be learned about the kingdom of God and God’s law, and Ted R. Weiland goes through it clearly and concisely in his free online book “Law and Kingdom: Their Relevance Under the New Covenant” at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/OnlineBooksFrame.html.

        This short book will be fascinating to anyone who thinks he already knows what the Bible has to say about either of these two subjects, as well as to the person who knows nothing but is curious to learn.

        • Grundune

          Shirley Booth, you sound just like a cult follower. If Ted asks you, Ethan, Gregory, Daniel and the other 2 to go with him to some foreign country, DON’T DO IT.

          Your allegiance MUST be to Jesus Christ, not to some clown who made up his own gospel. Ted R. Weiland does not have the authority or ability to save you, only Jesus Christ can do that. Keep the commandments of Him who loves you and sacrificed beyond what any person could for you.

          CLUE: It’s not Ted R. Weiland (no apologies for copying Weiland’s condescending writing style, either.)

          I’m glad you aren’t defending me! Your assertions that Weiland isn’t attempting to abolish the U.S. Constitution are immediately followed by his quotes that show he is. Not helpful to your argument but immensely amusing.

          Don’t be a silly woman who is carefully bound by chains and led slowly down to hell.

          Even if you can’t identify a cult leader, others can and do.

          • Bodey047

            Do your elders know you are such a poor representation of the LDS? How do you think they would respond if presented with months (if not years) of documented evidence that you have replaced reasoned discussion with ad hominem attack?

          • Grundune

            Argumentum ad hominem, is a logical fallacy in which an argument is rebutted by attacking the character, motive, or other attribute of the person making the argument. Since I have successfully refuted every one of his asinine criticisms of the U.S. Constitution on their lack of merit, my descriptions of his character (cultist, deceiver, etc ) are not in rebuttal to his premise that the U.S. Constitution is “antithetical and seditious, to Yahweh’s sovereignty and morality”. Therefore, they are not ad hominem attacks as you charge. They are accurate and deserved descriptions of him based on his ridiculous statements.

          • psychicbloodbrother

            Appeal to authority……Try appealing to the truth.

          • Bodey047

            I do appeal to the Truth! The Truth is the authority. Unfortunately, Grundune, as with anyone who follows a cult, cherry picks which of the scriptures he fancies. And he refuses to cite any scriptural evidence or even scriptural justifications for the dodging of basic questions of his Mormon faith or the ad hominem statements he makes about posters who challenge his limited ability to hold an actual logical discussion.

          • psychicbloodbrother

            Grundune, it is refreshing to see your posts holding fast to the truth and pointing others to it. Most of the folks recognize that these minions are likely paid shills for Ted. You definitely have them pinned down and it speaks volumes about the power of the truth. Fight the good fight my friend. Hard to believe that there are folks in this groups that would voluntarily work to diminish both Christianity and the Constitution simultaneously but we see this happening all over America. Have a great day.

          • Grundune

            Psychicbloodbrother, nice to see you again. Thank you for your defense of me but especially the Constitution.

        • psychicbloodbrother

  • Gregory Alan of Johnson

    How about Romans 10:9 Believers do Jericho marches around buildings that are occupied in a manner that is unscriptural?

  • Goddess

    this is very similar to what was happening back in Germany back in the early 30’s. where Jews had to keep their religion INSIDE of their homes, but were not allowed to worship, or show signs of worship on the outside. where Jews were vilified for not being Christian, for praying differently. and pretty soon it became all but illegal to BE Jewish, act Jewish, look Jewish…and that all turned into if you were Jewish you should not live. it seems that the same thing is happening AGAIN, but this time not JUST to Jews, but to EVERYONE who is NOT Muslim. it is only a matter of time, before it is illegal to show stars of David, or crosses outside the home. they will be illegal on churches and synagogues, illegal to wear around your neck, or have as a tattoo in a visible place. it will soon be all but illegal to be anything other than Muslim, look like anything but Muslim, act like anything but Muslim…and within time, it will become illegal to be anything but Muslim…just like it is in the middle east. history is repeating itself, except now it is not just Jews that are being singled out, it is everyone who ISN’T Muslim

    • psychicbloodbrother

      Islam is a totalitarian ideology of conquest and domination. The Muslim Brotherhood was completely aligned with the Democratic Socialists(NAZI’s) in the 1930’s. It is a time to choose Liberty or Tyranny and start telling the truth. Your post is spot on.
