The Freedom From Religion Foundation has asked the Levy County School Board to investigate several potential violations of the Constitutional establishment clause regarding church and state.

“They have a lot of work to do,” Seidel said. “It does appear to be a pretty extensive and severe set of problems.”

Seidel said the foundation first received complaints against Levy County schools in mid-April, and after about a month of research, found seven issues that violate church-state separation:

Levy County School Board meetings begin with an invocation, or prayer, delivered by the superintendent or a school board member, which “generally invokes Jesus,” according to the letter.

  • I wonder if the way to deal with these is some how to arrange a violation in favour of someone other than the Christians, to help them get the point how irritating it is to have some nutty religion crammed down your throat.

    No, it won’t. When it comes to Atheism, those nonsensical superstitious cults called “religions” stand together against a common enemy. It is the concept of religion that has to be fought, not just exchanging one for the other or trying to play them against each other. That won’t work because they are too stupid to see the contradictions but not stupid enough to overlook the threat.
