Atheist Threat to Churches for Feeding High School Football Team is Rebuffed

Today, Liberty Counsel offered free counsel and legal defense to Georgia’s Walker County Public School Board in response to the recent threats from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).

In its letter to the school superintendent, FFRF makes a number of assertions, leading off with the most ridiculous: “Taking public school football teams to church, even for a meal, is unconstitutional.” Traditionally, ten churches in Rossville, Georgia, take turns feeding the Ridgeland Panthers football team before games. The first meal and game of the season will be on August 31, 2012, unless the FFRF has its way.

This atheist group continues to lick stamps and send frivolous letters with militant zeal designed to hurt communities because of its anti-Christian fixation. Nothing in the Constitution requires communities to abandon common sense and create zones hostile to religion.
