What a bunch of drama whores

The supreme court has repeatedly held that student led prayer in schools is ok. What's not kosher is prayer (or other religious activities) led or encouraged by the faculty. So you'd think an agreement between a public school and the ACLU which did little more than restating this to prevent a lawsuit wouldn't be a big deal.

But it is.

It's a BIG FUCKING DEAL.

Like, World War III kinda big deal.

When a court barred the Christian Educators Association International (CEAI) from trying to overturn the agreement, the Liberty Counsel, a Christian organization fighting to allow prayer in Santa Rosa County schools, flipped shit.
The court’s ruling has elevated this case to nuclear war
OH.MY.GOD.

NUCLEAR WAR!

I'm going to start stocking up on canned food and batteries and flashlights and twinkies and Dawkins books (so I have something to read and remind me not to pray while the world is ending and I hide in my fallout shelter) and all that good stuff.

Meanwhile, what's the Hyperbole Liberty Council doing to prep for NUCLEAR WAR?!

"[I]t will sue the school district."

....

Oh.

I get it.

Those guys were just being stupid.

Good job on that. I mean, new twist. Usually it's just Godwin's Law, but invoking nuclear war.... that's a good one. Had me for a minute there.

That'll teach me to take these guys seriously.

I'm surprised they didn't invoke Hitler/Nazis. That's their usual MO.

Perhaps a pre-emptive strike is in order.
