I wonder if school board members will ever catch on that claiming in court that an activity isn't religious won't work when you are on the record in the minutes of a public meeting saying the opposite?

There is nothing about lying in the Bible, not even in the Ten Commandments.   >:D

Funny you shoudl say that, because the only things called the Ten Commandments in the Bible are in Exodus 34:

Quote
I am making a covenant with you. Before all your people I will do wonders never before done in any nation in all the world. The people you live among will see how awesome is the work that I, the LORD, will do for you. 11 Obey what I command you today. I will drive out before you the Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. 12 Be careful not to make a treaty with those who live in the land where you are going, or they will be a snare among you. 13 Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and cut down their Asherah poles.[a] 14 Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

 15 “Be careful not to make a treaty with those who live in the land; for when they prostitute themselves to their gods and sacrifice to them, they will invite you and you will eat their sacrifices. 16 And when you choose some of their daughters as wives for your sons and those daughters prostitute themselves to their gods, they will lead your sons to do the same.

 17 “Do not make any idols.

 18 “Celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread. For seven days eat bread made without yeast, as I commanded you. Do this at the appointed time in the month of Aviv, for in that month you came out of Egypt.

 19 “The first offspring of every womb belongs to me, including all the firstborn males of your livestock, whether from herd or flock. 20 Redeem the firstborn donkey with a lamb, but if you do not redeem it, break its neck. Redeem all your firstborn sons.

   “No one is to appear before me empty-handed.

 21 “Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest.

 22 “Celebrate the Festival of Weeks with the firstfruits of the wheat harvest, and the Festival of Ingathering at the turn of the year. 23 Three times a year all your men are to appear before the Sovereign LORD, the God of Israel. 24 I will drive out nations before you and enlarge your territory, and no one will covet your land when you go up three times each year to appear before the LORD your God.

 25 “Do not offer the blood of a sacrifice to me along with anything containing yeast, and do not let any of the sacrifice from the Passover Festival remain until morning.

 26 “Bring the best of the firstfruits of your soil to the house of the LORD your God.

   “Do not cook a young goat in its mother’s milk.”

I wonder if they really would fit in a courtroom setting.

During the British riots last summer there were, I think, 2 men in Scotland arrested for inciting violence on a social media format (I think it was Facebook, will try to find it). Anywho, they got 4 years in jail for their troubles. Is there anything like that Stateside? Because some of that stuff is as bad imo.

If it was most other countries public threats of physical violence would be followed up and charges laid however I imagine that freedom of speech makes it perfectly OK in the gool 'ol US of A. Someone please tell me I'm wrong. :(

I think this would come down to credible threat, although I wouldn't be at all surprised if there were terrorist charges that could apply. As to credible threat some of these sound like students in her school, which certainly could be serious.

"Credible threat of violence" is a knowing and willful
statement or course of conduct that would place a reasonable person
in fear for his or her safety, or the safety of his or her immediate
family, and that serves no legitimate purpose.

So she is getting threats for defending the Constitution?  Hypocrites much?

Police are investigating.

If one is going to be ignorant, then one may as well make a thorough and studied job of it.

The fact that she did all this at age 16 is amazing.  It's just unfortunate that now she will have to face a lot of back lash from the christian majority, though something tells me she probably will be able to handle it.

There is  a scholarship fund set up for her, it can be found at The Friendly Atheist's site, this is a very worthy cause- getting a skeptic with her tenacity the highest education possible!

Go donate!
