A federal judge appointed by President Obama has fined a Mississippi school district over $7,500 after a Christian pastor led a prayer during an optional school assembly.
U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves said the Rankin, Miss., public school district defied his previous order banning prayer from their schools when they allowed Rev. Rob Gill to begin a ceremony honoring kids with above average ACT scores with a prayer.
“The district’s breach did not take very long and it occurred in a very bold way,” Reeves stated, according to Infowars. “Its conduct displays that the district did not make any effort to adhere to the agreed judgment.”
Reeves, who was appointed by Obama in 2010, also banned the distribution of Bibles on school property. His decision came after a high school student sued the school district over their assemblies with the help of the anti-Christian American Humanist Association.
“Along with the $7,500 in fines, the school district will also have to pay the student’s legal fees, an amount that will be determined at a later date,” the Christian Post reported. “Reeves also threatened the school district with a $10,000 fine for any future infractions of the order.”
The school district argued that the assembly was not mandatory, but the Obama-loving judge wasn’t having any of it as he accused them of trying to “indoctrinate students” with Christianity.
“It deliberately went out of its way to entangle Christian indoctrination in the education process,” Reeves said. “From the accounts detailed in the record, it appears that incorporating religious script and prayers with school activities has been a long-standing tradition of the district.”
This is yet another example of Christians being turned into second class citizens, an epidemic that has spread like wildfire since Obama first entered office. Frankly, this makes us sick!
