University SLAMS on the Brakes! We Won’t Toss Out Bibles or Crosses

It looks like Bibles and Crosses may still be in at the East Central University of Oklahoma. Under attack by Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, the University did a knee-jerk reaction and started to desecrate the Chapel on campus. They receive a firestorm of protest and have reconsidered acting rashly. This does NOT mean the battle is over, only that it has been delayed. You can see it in how the University parses their words and actions in this article by Todd Starnes.

As Written By Todd Starnes for toddstarnes.com:

The leadership at Oklahoma’s East Central University slammed on the brakes and jettisoned their decision to removes crosses, Bibles and other religious symbols from a historic campus chapel.

“We moved too quickly,” ECU president Katricia Pierson said in a prepared statement. “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.”

In other words — they screwed up.

The reversal came just a few hours after I unleashed our readers and listeners on the university — calling on them to engage the call-to-action in my new book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again.”

Earlier in the week, the university had announced they would commence with a Christian cleansing of the Kathryn P. Boswell Memorial Chapel.

Americans United for the Separation of Church and State had fired off a terse letter accusing the school of displaying “religious iconography.”

“These displays include Latin crosses on the top of and inside the building, Bibles and a Christian altar,” the letter stated. “While it is legal for a public university to have a space that can be used by students for religious worship so long as that space is not dedicated solely to that purpose, it is a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to display religious iconography on government property.”

That’s a great big load of Grade-A bull excrement.

Much like the Islamic radicals, the atheists and secularists want to erase Christianity from the public marketplace. And they are waging their cultural jihad not with bombs – but with lawsuits……..
