US District Judge and the Power of the Cross

US District Judge Janet C Hall ruled on Memorial Day, that two public high schools could not hold their 2010 graduations inside a local church.

Yes, the ACLU filed the lawsuit.

It's interesting how Judge Janet came to her conclusion that it would be an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

Before making the decision, she visited the church in Bloomfield, Conn.

She reported that those attending the graduation ceremonies would encounter, among other things, the following:

1. A large cross on the roof of the church.

2. A large central cross at the main entrance.

3. A large cross behind the stage.

"Therefore," the judge concluded, "by requiring a graduating senior ---or a parent of one---to enter First Cathedral Church in order to be able to participate in his or her graduation---or to watch their child graduate---Enfield Public Schools has coerced plaintiffs to support religion."

This decision is being appealed.

What do you think? Did the judge make the right decision? Post your thoughts.

Be Informed. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.

Thank you for your
continuing financial support.
