Judge Fred Biery Needs to be Schooled in The Constitution

On June 1, 2011 District Judge Fred Biery said that a San Antonio school could  not have or say a prayer in their June 4 school graduation ceremony. The  Judge stated that “These students, and all other persons scheduled to speak during the graduation ceremony, shall be instructed not to present a prayer, to wit, they shall be instructed that they may not ask audience members to “stand,” “join in prayer,” or “bow their heads,” they may not end their remarks with “amen” or “in [a deity’s name] we pray,” and they shall not otherwise deliver a message that would commonly be understood to be a prayer, nor use the word “prayer” unless it is used in the student’s expression of the student’s personal belief, as opposed to encouraging others who may not believe in the concept of prayer to join in and believe the same concept.”

“The students may in stating their own personal beliefs speak through conduct such as kneeling to face Mecca, the wearing of a yarmulke or hijab or making the sign of the cross.”
“The District, through its officials, shall review, and make any necessary changes to, the students’ revised remarks to ensure that those remarks comply with this Order, and shall instruct the students that they must not deviate from the approved remarks in making their presentations.”

Texas Attorney Gener...
I wonder just what constitution this judge has studied to come up with this ridiculous ruling. Angela Hildendrand stated that she is ” disappointed that my liberties are being infringed upon by this courts ruling to censor my free speech.”  Thankfully Texas has a Attorney General who has actually read and understands the constitution.
Attorney General Greg Abbott had the backbone to stand up and defend the constitution and free speech. All Texans should be proud that this man had the guts to uphold the constitution and our founding fathers ideas of freedom and liberty.

Our founding fathers made it perfectly clear that the Supreme court as well as congress were excluded from jurisdiction over religion. Adams once stated ” There is not a shadow of right in the general government to intermeddle with religion. Its least interference with it would be a most flagrant usurpation.”

In Thomas Jefferson’ssecond inaugural address he stated…………

In matters of religion, I have considered that its free exercise is placed by the constitution independent of the powers of the general government. I have therefore undertaken no occasion to prescribe the religious exercises to it; but have left them, as the constitution found them, under the direction and discipline of the state or church authorities acknowledged by the several religious societies.

Jefferson once showed his deep satisfaction in the way churches were using the local courthouse near Jefferson’s home…….

In Charlottesville, there is a good degree of religion, with a small spice only of fanaticism. We have four sects, but without either church or meeting house. The courthouse is the common temple, One Sunday in the month to each. Here Episcopalian and Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist, meet together, join in hymning their Maker, listen with attention and devotion to each others’ preachers, and all mix in society with perfect harmony.

So you see, there is a wall of separation of church and state. That separation is there to keep the filthy ignorant federal courts and congress out of the religious practices of the people. We must return to the constitution and its rules to get the government back under the peoples control. This is not a nation of rulers law. It is a nation of peoples law. As long as the government run indoctrination centers (high schools)   continue to rob our nation of its heritage, history and our founding fathers ideas of liberty. We as a nation shall surely lose that liberty. We must educate ourselves and our children if we are to remain a free nation ruled by law, not by men. The constitution was written to keep the government under control, not the people. It will only work if we keep the people educated in the constitution. Our founders said that one of the most fundamental principles of good government is…  A constitution should be structured to permanently protect the people from the human frailties of their rulers.
Just sayin……………….
“Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” –George Washington
