How in the heck can an atheist be persecuted for their religion? Dictionary.com defines atheist as;
“persons not inclined toward religious belief. An atheist is one who denies the existence of a deity or of divine beings.”
So, how does a student sue the school on the grounds that a banner referring to God persecutes her religious beliefs? If you have no religion, you can’t claim religious persecution. You can’t have it both ways. Either you believe in God and a religion or you don’t. If you don’t believe in God, seeing His name should not persecute you.
This is what is wrong with the American school system. A student can cause untold headache and frivilous lawsuits with claims that have no basis in logic and the court system takes it seriously.
Here in the animal kingdom, we swat our cubs and kittens a quick one to the ear and they straighten right up. No court needed.
Pick a side, humans. No one likes a namby pamby.
