A Mississippi elementary school retroactively banned religious expression on face masks a day after ordering a student to remove her â€śJesus Loves Meâ€ť mask, according to a federal lawsuit filed Monday against the school district, board of education and individual officials.
Online metadata show the mask policy was modified less than an hour after Lydia Boothâ€™s mother called the school demanding to know why she was required to remove her religious mask (above) the previous day.
I hope that the parents of this little child win their court case.,They should pursue it, because they are taxpayers, but they should also take their child out of that school, and either send her to a real proper private evangelical Christian school, or homeschool Lydia. Another reason for taking her out is this dreadful COVID19 dictatorship that directs that even small children must wear masks all day, along with all the other â€śsocial distancingâ€ť measures that now take place. In England, thankfully, primary school children do not have to wear masks, but staff do, and it is compulsory for secondary school children. Windows and doors must be open in this freezing weather. If the dining hall is too small, for â€śsocial distancingâ€ť it is locked up, and children have to bring sandwiches or buy food from a mobile unit. Classes are strictly segregated, with staggered times, and at the hint of a sniffle, a child is sent home, and if any one has a positive test, the whole class and staff go home for 14 days quarantine. Most things like concerts and sports events are out of the question. These poor children are loaded with fear, and that is on top of all the pc rubbish that they learn at the school!!
John Y., I am glad to hear you wouldn't be happy with the declaration that every Muslim has to make. đź‘Ž
The court case I was pointing out was actually that of the decision that the supreme Court came. The majorityopinion was written by Justice Scalia. I don't think these people are going to get very far with court cases, pushing a religion.
Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Bible Commentary wrote: ...Religion is brought into contempt, and its professors insulted, when it is forced upon those who cannot value it and will not have it. But while the indiscriminately zealous have need of this caution, let us be on our guard against too readily setting our neighbors down as dogs and swine, and excusing ourselves from endeavoring to do them good on this poor plea....
John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.â€ś
Why does the â€śworldâ€ť hate Jesus, whom they donâ€™t know?
What we see here is spiritual dark forces at work. The thing is that the unsaved reprobates have no idea about the works of Satan and his demons in their lives. Some of the things which the unsaved do does not make sense â€” such as the actions against this mask.
But look at the verses above where the Lord addresses this phenomenon and expects it to happen to the Christians.
Satan is working among us and will always be hostile towards the Church of Christ.
NCAC wrote: .... Recent Supreme Court decisions have made clear, the right to free speech and expression can sometimes be subordinated when necessary to achieve legitimate educational goals. (See discussions of Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier and Bethel School District v. Fraser, in Fact Sheet #4.) A school is not comparable to a public park where anyone can stand on a soapbox, or a bulletin board on which anyone can post a notice. While students and teachers do not â€śshed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gateâ€ť (Tinker v. Des Moines), speech is not quite as free inside educational institutions as outside....
excerpt from, "The First Amendment and Public Schools"
John Y., Would you be in favor of some student handing out face masks for free, that said, "God is One and Muhammad is His Prophet"?
Romans 8:35-39 KJV (35)Â Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (36)Â As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. (37)Â Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. (38)Â For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, (39)Â Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I agree brother, well said. Freedom of speech and freedom of religion are illusions "everywhere" in the world. The unsaved hate our Lord and Savior.
