Today at the Capitol: More Religion! As Much as Possible!
February 25, 2014 at 10:27AM
In their ongoing quest to ensure that religious expression is never far from center stage in Tennessee's public schools, our elected guardians of spiritual zeal down at the state capitol (masquerading as the House Education Committee) today take up the Religious Viewpoints Antidiscrimination Act (HB1547/SB1793). The measure, which could have been titled the "Make Schoolchildren Commingle With As Much Religion As Humanly Possible Act," would require that local school boards adopt policies letting students express religious beliefs in all kinds of settings: assemblies, athletic events, pep rallies, graduation ceremonies, and even school day opening announcements.
