    "The Prayer at Valley Forge" painting by Arnold Friberg
    A federal judge ruled against a public school teacher who filed a lawsuit after administrators removed Christian-themed postings from his classroom, including a depiction of George Washington praying at Valley Forge and news clippings about the faith of President Bush and former Attorney General John Ashcroft.

    William Lee – a Spanish teacher at Tabb High School in York County, Va. – was represented by the Christian public-interest group Rutherford Institute in U.S. District court, arguing his free-speech rights were violated.

    The postings, removed at the beginning of the 2004-05 school year after a parent complained, included news articles about Bush's Christian faith and Ashcroft's prayer meetings with staffers.

    But Judge Rebecca Beach Smith wrote in her opinion the case "is not about what free speech rights Lee has as an individual expressing himself on private property," according to the Associated Press.

    "Rather, this case is a question about what free speech rights Lee has as a public school teacher-employee," she said.

    School officials also removed from Lee's classroom a flier promoting the National Day of Prayer.

    Lee's attorneys argued his bulletin boards were a limited public forum for the private speech of teachers, but Smith insisted they were part of his curriculum and, therefore, not protected by the First Amendment, the AP said.


    Let's look at the facts of this case. If this teacher were to have had posters of, oh, I don't know, let's say for arguments sake, "Great Moments in Islamic History" depicting muhammeds slaughter of a Jewish tribe, or a poster of che the magnificient, would this even be an issue? What if he were to put up a poster of the great generalissimos of latin america, dictators to the last man? Would THAT be permissible? We will probably never know, as thi man is obviously a Christian and a Patriot, which makes him one of the most dangerous types of people in the world today.

    Any bets on whether he is white or not? And yes, I am playing the race card. What? I can't do that? Why?

    The fact of the matter is this: If this teacher had pictures up of ANYONE except the Pope or a Great Patriot or a Christian religious figure, (Martin Luther, St. Christopher name you figure) nobody would have DARED to complain at all. They would have cowered in fear of "offending" his "culture", and not one word would have been said about it.

    But the culture of this country, the culture of AMERICA, that is overwhelmingly Christian and holds our Founding FATHERS in EXTREMELY HIGH ESTEEM is targeted and allowed to be attacked, and any that DARE to stand up and say ENOUGH!!! are labeled as "racist" and "religious zealots"!!!!

    I have had ENOUGH myself.

    To those of you that believe you can continue to attack the Patriotic underpinnings of this Great Nation I have a small bit of advice; We will NOT continue to stand silent while you take away our freedom to live as we so choose. You will not be able to continue to to force us to hide in the shadows, fearful of "offending" your tender sensibilities. Someday, you will push one too many times, and when we rise up to push back, you will feel the Absolute and Rightous Fury of Free Men once again Claiming what God has decreed to be our Right.

    Our Freedom.
