The atheist group FFRF is now complaining that a football coach at a public university is using a personal twitter account to post Bible verses.
- Since the coach’s twitter account does not mention the public school, there is no violation of the 1st Amendment.
- The 1st Amendment says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” This amendment refers to the federal government, not state government; and no where does it say that an employee of a public STATE university cannot speak their mind.
- If you don’t like something someone says, remember the universe does not revolve around you and you don’t have any right to expect it to do so.
My thought for today is:
If you are offended by someone speaking of their spirituality, you don’t have the right to stifle their speech, but you do have the right to walk away. ~ ME
