Recently, we’ve heard (or read) about a college professor banning students from thanking God at their graduation ceremony, and a teacher banning the reading of the Bible during private reading time.
And these are just the most recent cases – this has been happening for years, now. And ion almost every incident, the offenders end up with their knuckles rapped, either by the courts or by their own bosses.
You’d think by now they would have learned their lesson.
But Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. They just keep beating the same dead horse, in hopes that somebody, somewhere, will screw up and hand them a victory that they can flog. And why not? Precious few of these folks are punished with more than a verbal warning, a slap on the wrist (figuratively speaking), and maybe a couple of days off – with pay.
A modest suggestion: as punishment, folks who lose these arguments ought to be required to attend a lecture on the original meaning and application of whichever Amendment they’ve violated.
Then, they have to pass a test. If they fail, they lose their jobs.
If they refuse, they lose their jobs.
Enough is enough.
