Mississippi Leads the Way Restoring Prayer in Schools as DOJ Seeks Infringement

Seen at misguidedchildren.com:

Governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi has signed a new law, effective Monday, which requires school districts to allow a “limited public forum” at school events such as intercom announcements, assemblies or football games, to enable students to express religious beliefs. Mississippi Senate Bill 2633 states:

…public schools to develop policies that will allow students to pray over school intercoms, at assemblies and at sporting events.  While not allowing school-sanctioned prayer, the law permits students to offer public prayers with a disclaimer by the school administration.

The disclaimer is that such student speech “does not reflect the endorsement, sponsorship, position or expression of the district.”

According to Senator Chris McDaniel (R-Ellisville), the bill “Provides a limited public forum — making it clear the state is not endorsing the speech.” McDaniel added, “What we don’t want to do is make it where prayer is discriminated against.”

DOJ Defunds Youth Programs that Reference God

Wow.

Obama’s Department of Justice has summarily removed federal funding from two Louisiana youth programs, one a Young Marines program, because a local official refused to sign a pledge stating he would require the programs to ban mentions of God.

Julian Whittington, the sheriff of Bossier Parish, La., told Fox News that Obama’s Justice Office of Civil Rights defunded the Young Marines chapter and another youth program over mentions of religion. In the case of the Young Marine program, chartered in 1965, the funding was cut off because the group features an oath that mentions “God.” In the other case it was because a program for at risk youth featured a voluntary, student-led prayer session as one of its activities.

Sheriff Whittington says that the DOJ withdrew a combined $30,000 from the programs because the groups refused to remove God from their activities. The sheriff said this was evidence of the government’s “aggression and infringement of our religious freedoms.”

The State V. God

Ben Shapiro on the ramifications of the SCOTUS ruling last week.

The ramifications of that move are stunningly far-reaching. The argument that gay marriage doesn’t affect straight marriages is a ridiculous red herring: Gay marriage affects society and law in dramatic ways. Religious groups will come under direct assault as federal and state governments move to strip them of their non-profit statuses if they refuse to perform gay marriages. Public schools across the country will be forced to teach homosexual marriage alongside traditional marriage. Religious business owners will be leveraged to pay for benefits for same-sex spouses.

In the left’s view, all of this is to the greater glory of humanity. In the leftist view, there is no freedom to associate or freedom of religion if those rights come into conflict with the left’s view of morality. Religious florists must provide flowers for gay weddings; religious organizations must pay for abortion and contraception. What you do in your church makes you immoral, says the left — so immoral that your church must be removed from the public square or forced to bow to the power of the state.

Charged with DUI despite blood alcohol content of 0.000

Not entirely sure how you can blow a zero on the breathalizer, pass the drug and alcohol exam, and still get pinched for DUI.  Something fishy here.  Read at newsnet5.com:

Jessie Thornton sleeps during the day and runs errands and works out during the night.

...

Around 11 p.m. Thornton, according to Surprise Police Department paperwork, was pulled over for crossing the white line in his lane.

"He (the officer) walked up and he said 'I can tell you're driving DUI by looking in your eyes,'" said Thornton.

The 64-year-old says his eyes could have been red because he had just left LA Fitness where he was in the pool swimming.

"I take my glasses off and he says, 'You've got bloodshot eyes.' I said, 'I've been swimming at LA Fitness,' and he says, 'I think you're DUI,'" said Thornton. "He (the officer) goes, 'Well we're going to do a sobriety test.' I said, 'OK, but I got bad knees and a bad hip with surgery in two days.'"

Medical documents show Thornton was scheduled to have hip replacement surgery two days after the incident.

According to the police report, the officer notes that Thornton does have a hip and knee problem.

Thornton said two other officers arrived and he conducted the sobriety test.

HHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius refuses to save dying girl; "someone lives and someone dies"

UPDATE: [I]t’s wrong and now a judge has stepped in.

A federal judge on Wednesday ordered HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to allow 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan to be moved to the adult lung transplant list, giving her a better chance of receiving a potentially life-saving transplant.

The quick and unusual ruling, made after a hastily scheduled emergency hearing, follows a campaign by the family and some members of Congress to pressure the Obama administration to change a federal policy that puts children under age 12 at the bottom of the list of those who can receive donated adult lungs.

Murnaghan has cystic fibrosis and her doctors have said she may only live a few weeks without the transplant. She has been on the waiting list for pediatric donors for 18 months, but they are more rare and her condition is worsening. There’s no guarantee that even with the judge’s ruling, a suitable donor will become available in time, but her odds would be better.

The case played out amid growing controversy with Sebelius in the spotlight. Several right-wing blogs and commentators depicted her as a one-woman “death panel.” The child’s mother said Sebelius was choosing to let children die.

Military Veteran stops a break-in attempt only to be arrested for protecting himself and his property

Obviously the heinous criminal is the one protecting himself.  Good job, Medford PD Rolling Eyes

Military veteran Corey Thompson, 36, told KDRV-TV that the wanted felon was trying to break into his home via the back door. Defending his property, Thompson said he warned the criminal that he was armed and he was giving him his one and only warning shot.

“This is the end result. You break into someone’s house, there’s consequences,” Thompson said.

Wielding his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, the veteran made good on his threat and fired one warning shot. The bullet did not strike the suspect or anyone else.

“When I’m dealt with a stressful situation, being a veteran from Iraq and the Afghanistan war, it’s natural. I just jump into combat mode. I told him, ‘I’m going to give you a warning shot’,” Thompson explained.

However, police later determined he wasn’t justified in firing his weapon. Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau said “there was nothing that the suspect was doing that was aggressive enough to justify the shooting.”

Apparently, for police in Medford, a wanted felon trying to break into a law-abiding citizen’s home isn’t enough to justify a warning shot.
