Don’t you think with Obama’s economy, those new job seekers are going to need all the help they can get? Aren’t there more important issues for a federal judge to be concerned with?
Peter Morrison is fired up about it in his latest report:
Just last week, a federal tyrant threatened the Texas Senate with grounding all flights in Texas if the anti-groping bill was passed. Yesterday another federal tyrant, an unelected appointed-for-life federal judge named Fred Biery, banned any and all prayer at the Medina Valley ISD graduation ceremonies.
He went as far as to order students and administration that they could not use words like “prayer,” or “bow their heads,” or “amen” upon penalty of jail time for contempt of court.
Folks, it doesn’t get any more outrageous than this. There’s only one real solution: civil disobedience by students at the Medina Valley ISD graduation, followed by interposition and nullification of the judge’s order by the governor. The sovereign state should interpose itself between the tyrant and its citizens to prevent abuses of the Constitution, and nullify this judge’s unconstitutional order. It’s the only solution that preserves the students’ rights in time for their graduation.
Rick Perry talks a good talk about protecting state’s rights. This is where the rubber meets the road. Governor Perry should order state troopers and other law enforcement personnel to protect the administration and students of Medina Valley ISD from arrest. Furthermore, this federal judge ought to be tried for unlawful assaults and threats. If I illegally threatened to kidnap and jail someone for praying in public, that would be a crime, and it’s the same crime even if it’s done by an unelected tyrant in a black robe.
Please send a fax to Governor Perry asking him to use every resource of the state to protect these students’ civil rights:
You know, last time I checked, the First Amendment provides us with freedom of religion, to worship in the manner of our choosing, not freedom from religion. No one in the graduation audience will be forced to pray. I promise. If you don’t want to, then don’t. Go get a beverage or a souvenir. Or you could just stand there and politely keep your yap shut for a moment. The Muslim terrorists in Gitmo have more religious freedom than those on the left would allow our students.
They don’t hate any God. The left hates the Christian God.

UPDATE: Prayers answered.
Thanks to Kurt from A Trainwreck in Maxwell for the email.
Fortunately the school officials came to their senses after calls from all over the world including Afghanistan.
Yea. You read that right. It took calls from Afghanistan(!) amongst other places to reverse this lunacy.
Witness what happens when American Patriots learn you were removed of your First Amendment rights.
God bless all of you who participated in that show of support.
UPDATE: Frugal Cafe has more.
UPDATE II: Thanks Proof for the proofreading.
Iâ€™ve recently read several bloggers posting in what can only be described as another one of those â€œIâ€™m a Libertarian and anyone who criticizes Libertarians, no matter how stupid those Libertarians acted, is a big fat poopy headâ€ arguments. The funny thing was the topic wasnâ€™t even Libertarians in general. The topic was the California gay marriage ruling by some wacko homosexual activist judge.
There are a few points missing from your arguments. Iâ€™ll start with those.
1: James Madison, the Father of our Constitution, clarified the authority of the federal government in the Federalist Papers #45: “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined.â€
The Federal Government is growing beyond our control. This is the leviathan we fight. Define it as that. Our problem is with the Federal Government, if you have a problem in your State, battle it in your State either now or after the fight to get the Federal Government reeled back in.
2: Madison continues: â€œThose which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.â€
Remember that line?
What part of numerous and indefinite donâ€™t you understand? Itâ€™s mighty convenient for someone to spout off about â€œThe Stateâ€ when â€œThe Statesâ€ might just be our knights in shining armor that begin the march away from Socialism and against the Federal encroachment that (can we agree?) the Federal Government Â has been pursuing.
3: Donâ€™t confuse 1 & 2 and donâ€™t paint them as equal. Over generalization doesnâ€™t suit you. Youâ€™re smarter than that, and besides, arenâ€™t we trying to restore some semblance of a Constitutional Republic?
I thought we were.
On the gay marriage issue: You know, the one that started the whole thing?
The California ruling by an openly homosexual and obviously activist judge struck down, for the SECOND time, a public vote (the very basis of our Constitutional Republic) against gay marriage. This is no small pittance of an issue but seems to be disregarded in all defenses of Libertarians for Gayness. Iâ€™ll state my views now and let the chips fall as they may.
Iâ€™m against â€œgay marriageâ€ and all that comes with it. Reason being is that it is nothing more than another attempt to legitimize and promote an abhorrent activity. The gays and lesbians have used this issue and others to infiltrate our school system with the indoctrination of our children along with Hollywood and the media and their incessant promotion of the â€œalternative lifestyleâ€ that if any of their parents had practiced, they would not be here to promote in the first place.
Let me state the freaking obvious for all of you who wish to quote me. There is an argument against homosexuality that stares you in the face each and every day. That argument is called anatomy and reproduction. Without the male and female sexes being different and shall we say, â€œaccommodatingâ€ by design, uniting to produce a another human being, or procreation, would not be possible, much to the chagrin of the leaders and activists in the gay and lesbian community who would like nothing more than to promote the homosexual lifestyle to our children as legitimate. Perhaps in the glorious future it will be possible for us lowly humans to reproduce asexually, but we canâ€™t right now, thank God. This is just one facet of the fight and you didnâ€™t even address it!
I don’t care what someone does in the privacy of their own home, but this issue to me is about our children and the leftâ€™s attempt to sell homosexuality as a legitimate lifestyle. It is not, in my mind, legitimate, I would rather let the child grow up to make up their own mind, not influenced by some pre-indoctrination from the schools or the government or the media in general. This stance is not so much anti-homosexual as it is pro-creation.
If someone continues to sidetrack these issues, your arguments will no longer hold water with me. I donâ€™t care what political bent you side yourself with, if you would support those who would promote a lifestyle that denies the very basics of human nature and design, then you are on the wrong side of the issue.
Likewise youâ€™d better subject yourself to the same scrutiny that you apply to others when you accuse some brother in the fight of using over generalizations and ad-homonym attacks against your particular ism.
You have done yourselves a disservice in my eyes. Maybe Iâ€™m the only one who holds that opinion, but I donâ€™t think so. I encourage you to re-read the entire exchange. The topic quickly went from a legitimate rant about an activist judge ruling against the will of the voters to some defense of Libertarianism in general, which was taken somewhat out of context with the discussion at hand.
Something was in the water that few days is all I know. The usually well reasoned folks Iâ€™ve come to respect had gone off and created some weird-ass feud as if we donâ€™t have an enemy already. Grow up people. Not everyone is impugning your particular point of view and no-one would know of your bias unless you opened your own blog and removed all doubt.
The funny thing to meÂ in reading the rebuttals was, like I said, the original bitch got thrown out of the kennel, roaming free in the woods to breed some more while some of the would-be handlers got caught in the pen, arguing about what type of dog food is best for the pack.
Iâ€™m an admitted newcomer to your particular blogging party, but Iâ€™m no idiot and I can call out inconsistency when I see it.
Police yourselves people, and remember whose side we are on and who and what it is we are fighting for.
And BTW, marriage hasnâ€™t always been sanctioned by religion, but it has nearly always been a legal contract and as a contract, if it is broken, bears legal consequences as to possessions and the rights of children etc. Who is going to preside over the separation and subsequent issues of ownership and custody if not the State or some local form of government?
A few days ago I received a link to a video of Morgan Freeman chatting with Mike Wallace about race. I like Mr. Freeman’s answer very much. Aren’t we all just people?
I was reminded of Mr. Freeman’s comments today when I read the current issue of The Peter Morrison Report. Peter has written a very courageous piece this week and should be commended for taking a stand on this important issue. Racism should be stamped out, no matter what side of the fence it originates from.
The Peter Morrison Report
End Racial Preferences in Texasâ€
Affirmative action, racial quotas and racial preferences are grossly unfair and blatantly unconstitutional, but they have now become standard operation procedure. Our schools, businesses and local, state and federal government agencies are engaged in a massive campaign of discrimination against the majority of Americans, simply because they’re white. If we don’t put a stop to this now, with America’s rapidly shifting demographics, it may soon be too late, and our children and grandchildren will be permanent second class citizens in the country their forefathers built.
Send a fax to Governor Rick Perry, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and Speaker of the Texas House Joe Straus and tell them to put a stop to all quotas, set asides, affirmative action and all other forms of racial preferences in Texas.
A couple of items you should know about in the WTF category.
While I was doing the T-Shirt post, I ran across an article at Pamella Geller’s site, Atlas Shrugs, about some Christians jailed for talking to Muslims! in Michigan! This is Sharia law being practiced in Free Speech America and we cannot let it stand.
Also, I received an email from Human Events yesterday alerting me to the same Christian evangelists plight.
Here is part of the email:
Jailed for Jesus in America…Michigan police arrestÂ Christians for talking to Muslims
Four Christians were arrested and jailed for talking to Muslims about Jesus, by order of police chief Ronald Haddad of Dearborn Michigan, who defended the arrests one week after the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered those same police to let Christian evangelist George Saieg preach openly at a Muslim festival there.
The email also contained this link and explanation:
PLEASE SELECT HERE TO SIGN PETITION (and we’ll fax it to 535 Congressmen), DEMANDING FBI INVESTIGATE POLICE CORRUPTION IN DEARBORN MICHIGAN Â (or just watch video and send a free email to Dearborn Mayor and Police Chief.)
The second item I want to alert you to is the new legislation being hammered out in the Congress that will, in effect, allow more government seizure of private companies, industry, or something. The lawmakers are once again chanting the mantra of “We’ve got to pass it so we can find out what is in it.”
I can hear the monks now…
Jamie Jeffords has a short piece on it with some other links:
I’ve heard of someone “Giving you the business” but this is getting bass-ackwardÂ ridiculous.
Anyone Still Wondering Where This PC Bullshit Is Going Better Take A LookÂ At Britain.
Via twitter friend JihadHunter some disturbing images and a story to wake up the drowsy, that is if you want to be awakened at all. If not, sorry ’bout your bad luck.
From the UK Daily Mail:
Screaming hate and brandishing vile placards, Muslim extremists and far-Right groups clashed yesterday in ugly scenes that marred a parade by soldiers.
Around 40 members of a group called Muslims Against the Crusades (MAC) arrived with inflammatory banners featuring slogans such as ‘Butchers return’ and ‘What are you dying for? Â£18k’.
Now the good news. Some of our English brethren are tired of the BS as well:
They were soon confronted by 100 people, some wearing English Defence League T-shirts, who shouted ‘scum’ and ‘Muslim bombers off our streets’.
Thank God for anyone willing to stand up to this vile attempt at defaming defenders of freedom. Who do these idiots think protect their right to protest in the first place?
