breaking christian news us flag bible

(Worthy News) - A school district in Massachusetts will no longer allow prayer at its school-sponsored events in order to appease one of the nation's leading atheist groups.

Last month, Canton Public Schools Superintendent Jennifer Fischer-Mueller informed the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation that "steps have been taken to ensure that there will be no prayers or religious rituals" included as part of any school ceremony or school-sponsored event, including graduation ceremonies.

Fischer-Mueller's letter came after FFRF, which advocates for a strict separation of church and state and regularly pressures school districts and local government entities across the nation to drop all types of religious activities and cooperation, sent a demand letter to her in late June.

  1. Just shows their inner fear of Almighty God. No one will have an excuse for not believing in Him. The inner man our heart of hearts knows God is real. There are no true Atheist only rejectors and deniers.

  2. Then all "Christians" should avoid doing anything with this school district. I have yet in my life asked anyone if I could pray I need not their permission.
    Just do not act like the Pharisees and try to make a show out of acting righteous and "Holier than Thou" around anyone there. Minister to those the Holy Spirit leads you to or puts in your path.
    Do not be part of the world but more like JESUS.

    27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

    28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me
