On Monday, June 27th, the heavily conservative SCOTUS ruled that high school football coach, Joe Kennedy, had the constitutional right to pray in the middle of the 50 yard line of the football field after games. This was at a public school where the wall of separation between church and state, long a bulwark against the insinuation of religion into the secular workings of society, is being eroded by self-proclaimed ‘Christians’ who are quite keen to groom the next generation into a brand of Christianity that is markedly ‘un-Christian’. Perhaps if these ‘Christians’ bothered to read their Bibles, they would know that they aren’t supposed to take pictures of themselves praying and plastering them all over the internet… let alone doing so in front of an entire arena full of people. That’s not ‘practicing religion’, that’s advertising.
NIV Matthew 6:5
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites,”
“for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men.”
“I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.”
Joe Kennedy, you fucking pud.
