Short Timer or Short Sighted?

Reiko asked her high school principal if she could start a bible club at school. He said no because of separation of church and state. When Reiko told me his response I had to laugh. I think the real issue is that he is retiring at the end of the school year and just didn’t want to deal with it. Et least that is what I hope it was.

The principal illustrates something else that is going on in our society. People in leadership can no longer just make their pronouncements and assume that will be the end of it. I typed in “bible clubs in public schools”. Obviously, bible clubs are not in violation of the notion of separation of church and state.

We used to be fed by the mainstream media and they determined what we would hear, but now with alternative media most leaders realize that many of us will hear the whole story and not just the part they want us to hear.

The principal doesn’t realize that with a few clicks Reiko can get all of the firepower she needs to start an on campus bible club including legal help. Why? Because it is one of our first amendment rights. I think they still teach this.

I think he is just counting the days till he retires. Fishing, traveling or maybe a cross-country evangelistic trip preaching the gospel.
