Both sides show support for LFO Cheerleaders

Friday night's packed crowds looked more like a church service than a high school football game as both sides of fans held signs with Bible verses and Christian phrases as Lakeview-Fort Ogle-thorpe played Ridgeland.

"You took him off our sign but you will never take him out of our hearts," and similar signs flooded the home stands showing support for the LFO cheerleaders who were banned from holding their banners with Bible verses last week.

Catoosa County Schools Superintendent Denia Reese banned the signs that were part of recent high school tradition from the football games when a local resident complained they were a violation of federal laws.

The community has rallied behind the cheerleaders, and a rally on Tuesday drew hundreds of people.

"A lot of good has come out of this," said Christine Willingham, an LFO cheerleader. "This has brought (people) to God."

After his team lost 34-0 to Ridgeland, Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe coach Todd Windham acknowledged all the attention from the controversy.

"I'm not going to use that as an excuse," he said. "During the week I thought the players handled it nicely, about as good as they possibly could. The bottom line is we got beat by a team that played better football."

The student section was filled with "Jesus" painted on body's and faces and Bible verses draped over parts of the stands. At least a third of the crowd had on "Warriors for Christ" shirts that the cheerleaders sold all week and handed out before the game.

"I believe it's more about people supporting their beliefs," LFO principal Jerry Ransom said. "I think it's brought (the community) together."

While Mr. Ransom said he doesn't think the school board could have handled the issue any differently, he thinks the cheerleading team has been "awesome" in handling the situation.

Through the sea of supporters were two opponents who had handmade shirts that said "Protect the Law."

Steven Harris and Julie Smith, both seniors at LFO, made the shirts to show their support with Mrs. Reese's decision to ban the signs and support the law that separates church from state.

"I just want people to know there are other beliefs," Mr. Harris said. "This isn't a Christian school."

The sign issue began when Donna Jackson, a resident of Ringgold, Ga., complained to the superintendent about the signs. It became more controversial when she said she was only trying to warn the school the signs could lead to a lawsuit.

Ms. Jackson, a postgraduate student at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University, said Thursday in a news release that she "neither intended nor expected her (Mrs. Reese) to take the drastic action that ensued."

On Thursday, Catoosa County officials released a statement in which Mrs. Reese said, "Donna Jackson called me on Sept. 23, 2009, and made the accusation that the school system was breaking the law and that it needed to be stopped."

But students, parents and some without affiliation to the school, came to Friday night's game with signs and shirts supporting the cheerleaders.

Joyce Sparks, of Ringgold, and her husband came to the game with their three children, none of whom go to either school.

"It's not about the football game," she said. "I'm here to support the cheerleaders and stand up for Christianity."

She and her family were holding signs that read, "I (Heart) Jesus" and "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ."

Even Ridgeland fans ignored the rivalry and supported the cheerleaders.

"We're behind them all the way," said Taylor Clark, a Ridgeland cheerleader. "I just don't think it's right for them to take their signs away like that."

The Ridgeland cheerleaders had red and white ribbons pinned to their outfits and made signs in support of the LFO cheerleaders as well as giving the whole squad "goody baskets" they made before the game, Ms. Clark said.

"They're our worst enemies basically, but this shouldn't matter," she said. "The signs and God matter more than just winning the game."

The opposing team had signs draped across the fence saying "We support your team" and "We believe." A few Ridgeland fans even wore the red "Warriors for Christ" shirts and held their own signs with Bible verses.

Another rally is planned on Oct. 13 at the Catoosa County board of education meeting.

"This is what we want, people to come and support the cheerleaders and support Christ," said local youth pastor Brad Scott, one of the organizers of the Tuesday rally and Republican Party chairman for Catoosa County.

Correction: Roger Bowman is the Chairman of the Catoosa County Republican Party.

Brad Scott is a member of a disgruntled splinter group called the "Heritage Republicans," ironically led by Bill Clark and Donna Jackson's attorney Marshall Bandy, who are seeking media attention and political gain so they can run candidates against the real Republicans in 2010 and 2012.

Our founding fathers had a great idea when they opted for separation of church and state since religious zealotry has doomed many governments and people in history. However, NOWHERE in the Constitution does it state that government can't allow THE PEOPLE who use STATE PROPERTY (which belongs to the people, anyway) to choose how they use it. It only states in Article 3 of the Bill of Rights: "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. You are PREVENTING the free exercise of religion by the people. You MUST not establish a STATE RELIGION. I for one feel that I am being persecuted by my government for being a Christian!

rolando said...

One small addition or expansion, FrankHallman.

Our Founders had no intention of preventing religion from being part of the everyday operation of our government. They simply wanted to stop any OFFICIAL recognition of any single, specific religion over any other...that's why we left England to begin with...free expression.

Even today, essentially every opening of any public gathering or official government meeting/conference/whatever begins with a simple, non-sectarian prayer of blessing -- to "Providence", for instance. Sometimes alternating pastors give the prayer.

Our public buildings are covered with religious symbols, figures, Biblical quotes, Judeo-Christian concepts, etc etc. The US Supreme Court Building has Moses holding the Ten Commandments for Heaven's sake.

"Separation of church and state" is a made-up phrase used in a private letter a couple hundred years ago. The SCOTUS seized on it sometime in the late-1940s and ran with it.

The "establishment clause" was indeed an amazing addition to our Constitution...one of many truly amazing and awe-inspiring clauses they included. Thank God for our Founders forethought and experience-based wisdom.

5:67 "Believers, Jews, Sabaeans, or Christians - whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day and does what is right - shall have - nothing to fear or to regret." How many banner supporters would support the above from the Koran? Or how about this one? "...we believe in what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the tribes; to Moses and Jesus and the other prophets." Would you object to these quotes on a school football game banner? Just wondering.

October 3, 2009 at 8:45 a.m.

Just adding one more, how about this one? They say: "Accept the Jewish or the Christian faith and you shall be rightly guided." Say: "By no means! We believe in the faith of Abraham, the upright one. He was no idolater."

It never ceases to amaze me how brainwashing can make ordinarily sensible people act the fool. I will never again support any school program in Catoosa or Walker county in light of these acts of idiocy. Cult worship is bad enough in the churches but to brimg this nonsense to school just shows how easy it is to fool an intelligent person, but then look whos in the whitehouse. Our schools are dumming sown the minds of students and evidently parents today. Lemmings to the sea. Ehat sad and pathetic pack of hypocrites. Had it been muslim verses instead of fictional biblical fantasies, the churchies would have had a way different outlook, aka HYPOCRISY

Brad Scott is the former chairman of the Catoosa County Republican Party. Donna Jackson's attorney is not Marshall Bandy. Marshall is not a part of the Heritage Republicans. I think somebody needs to get their facts straight.

Brad has not mentioned politics at all in this case. He is a concerned youth pastor and LFO graduate that is supporting the Cheerleaders and Christ.

Hey Frank,

When you're on school property the rules change. If students had full rights under the Constitution at school then they would be allowed to wear shirts with profanity on them, etc... However, freedom of speech and such is limited at schools in this respect and rightfully so. Another example, I am a federal employee and when the presidential elections were going on, I was not allowed to wear anything to work that endorsed any of the candidates due to whats written in the Hatch Act. My job has nothing to do with elections and is not visible to the public yet I was still not allowed to show my support for a candidate one way or the other. Of course, I go to work to make sure people get safely from one place to another, not to campaign for politicians. Just the same, these cheerleaders were supposed to be at the game representing the school, cheering the team on and rallying the crowd, not feeding us lines from the bible or promoting their agenda.

As for you feeling persecuted for being a Christian? Give me a break and cry me a freakin' river. Look around this area and you'll see a church on every corner, a 100ft cross on Lee Hwy (why you people celebrate the vehicle to a man's death I've yet to understand) and church run schools littered everywhere.

By the way, how did the LFO football team do with all that Jesus support last night?

High school football is about two teams competing. Fans attend to support one of the teams or out of love for the game.

Displaying scriptures on banners, signs, shirts, and bodies at high school football games is wrong. I wonder how the community will react when gays, lesbians, pro-lifers, Muslims, radical extremists, and political parties show up to high school athletic events to promote their causes and beliefs. What if they show up to promote their causes at worship services? After all, they should be afforded the same opportunities.

Displaying scripture and taking a knee at midfield to pray are nothing more than publicity stunts and should be banned. Banners, signs, and people wearing scriptures (or propaganda) on their shirts or painted on their bodies should not have been allowed into the stadium. Such religious attire has no place outside of religious events.

If you believe in a god, a savior, or a prophet – then demonstrate your beliefs at football games with your actions (and not with your words or signs). If you feel the need to pray – do it without drawing attention to yourself. If you want to support your football team - then makes signs and banners, wear logos on shirts, paint your bodies, and enjoy the game.

The school hosting the game and organization(s) responsible for organizing and inciting people to violate the law should be sued.

Vandy,

The Holy Bible is reinforced by prophecy that has been fulfilled and yet to come, that is what makes it unique unlike all those other books out there that claims authority.

The Holy Bible is true, infallible, and God's complete word until he comes again.

cave_demon said...

it's pretty sad, but not at all surprising, that the rednecks once again will quote the constitution, saying that it doesn't explicitly state "separation of church and state", which it does not. But then these same idiots will claim they have the right to bear arms in their homes and in public, even though the constitution doesn't state that either. Typical constitutional picking-and-choosing on the part of the right wing. The entire point of the establishment clause is to avoid what is going on now- bickering over the public preference of one religion over another. The right-wingers will also use the phrase "the founding fathers were christians and wanted a christian nation", but conveniently forget that the founding fathers were part of a large group of people who were ostracized for their different views on christianity than the majority, and vowed to not have an oppressive government. But, as is always the case, education is the answer. Intelligent people are the non-believers, atheists, agnostics, secular humanists. The uneducated masses make up the christians.

Vandy: Re: your quotes.

Islam says to kill all infidels [those who do not believe in Allah and Mohammed as his prophet]. Period. Where does it say anything like that in the New Testament?

Chapter,verse, please.

Jesus taught love [among other things]; Mohammud taught death [among other things]. BIG difference. Perhaps it had something to do with their [former] professions...

You better throw away all your US money; it has all that talk about God on it as well as a number of arcane symbols on the printed stuff.

Religious symbols on public property is nothing new; the only thing new are the objections from Maddlyn Murphy's cult adherents.

Tax_Payer, you answered my question by being closed minded. rolando. I see you only include the New Testament in your Bible. Give me a Koran quote or two. And by the way, the National Cathedral isn't public property, it's a church and the Federal Government has nothing to do with it.

Tax_Payer. Since there are conservatively 9,000 Christian denominations each teaching different things from the same Bible, which one is correct? What happens to the members of the other 8,999 denominations?

October 3, 2009 at 12:41 p.m.

@Tax_Payer: There is no more proof of Biblical accuracy than there is for any other religion. For every piece of evidence you provide for the righteousness of your beliefs, a Muslim or Jew can provide one for hers. If you take the time to research religions, you will find more similarities than differences - from creation stories to the commandments and the golden rule. All religions have them. It is intolerant people who ruin religions and adulterate their messages of love.

FIVE FUNDAMENTALS OF THE FAITH

There are five fundamentals of the faith which are essential for Christianity, and upon which we agree:

  1. The Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1; John 20:28; Hebrews 1:8-9).
  2. The Virgin Birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:27).
  3. The Blood Atonement (Acts 20:28; Romans 3:25, 5:9; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 9:12-14).
  4. The Bodily Resurrection (Luke 24:36-46; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, 15:14-15).
  5. The inerrancy of the scriptures themselves (Psalms 12:6-7; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20).

And those who disagree with any of the above doctrines are not Christians at all. Rather, they are the true heretics. So disagreements are perfectly acceptable within the confines of Christianity, because our salvation does not hinge upon doctrines other than the above five.

But if some deny even one of the five fundamentals mentioned above, they have departed from the faith, "giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils" (1 Timothy 4:1). By denying the above scriptural doctrines, they have heaped to themselves "teachers, having itching ears" (2 Timothy 4:3); thereby even "denying the Lord that bought them" (2 Peter 2:1).

These are the true heretics, who are preaching "another Jesus", according to 2 Corinthians 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

And later in this same chapter, Paul refers to these people as the ministers of Satan, in 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

So, please - if you take offense to differences in lesser doctrines, don't think that we are condemning you as unbelievers or heretics. Nothing could be further from the truth. As long as you hold to the five fundamentals of the faith, you may join the debate. And together, we shall reprove the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11).

HiDef said...

Tax_Payer, I'm still curious as to your answer about the vast number of contradictions in the bible. Also, you are claiming that the bible is a true record of events, correct? What proof do you have to validate this claim? We have dinosaur bones proving there were dinosaurs, and carbon dating proving the world is older than 6000 years but I've yet to see you demonstrate any physical evidence that whats written in the bible actually happened. All you have is a book written by a bunch of people who never even knew their main character. You made the claim, now show us some proof.

October 3, 2009 at 1:12 p.m.

@HiDef: Now it's only five things in the Bible that one has to believe. All the other is just filler. So I can live my life in any way I choose, but as long as I believe in those five pillars of Christianity, I will have everlasting life.

As for number 5 on your list, Tax_Payer, if you could provide me with the original versions of the scriptures, and prove to me that what you are referring to in the present day has no errors in translation or interpretation, I will accept your arguments.

The scriptures as we know them today came to us via the translation of King James, arguably one of the most corrupt individuals during one of the most corrupted times in the Church's history. Unless you are an Aramaic scholar and have access to the original scriptures, you are blindly following something that may or may not be inerrant. Christ questioned the Torah and the religious folks of his day. One cannot truly have faith if he has not questioned it.

HiDef,

Here is freedom from that false doctrine.

With our focus on one particular form of radiometric dating—carbon dating—we will see that carbon dating strongly supports a young earth. Note that, contrary to a popular misconception, carbon dating is not used to date rocks at millions of years old.

Tax_Payer,

You pulled information from a religious website, hardly an unbiased source. Sad, just sad.

As I read the garbage from that page I found something that should send off alarms in every normal persons head. Here's the passage: "When a scientist’s interpretation of data does not match the clear meaning of the text in the Bible, we should never reinterpret the Bible...So we should never think it necessary to modify His Word"

WOW! Thats like saying, "I know you guys have PhD's and Nobel prizes in science and all, but since the trials and experiments and results don't coincide with this book from 1600 years ago, you're wrong!" That sir, is ignorant.

Back to the topic though. Carbon 14 dating can only date to about 50,000 years ago and correct, it does not date rocks to millions of years in age. It does however date plants and animals back 50,000 years, which they have done.

Try this site for a quick re-education on fossil dating written by a paleontologist: http://www.actionbioscience.org/evolution/benton.html

Yet you accept Darwin's hypothesis on the ascent of man without batting an eye...something even HE didn't do. So where are all the trials, the experiments, the results, and the predictions proven correct that support his idea?

You accept Darwin's odd-ball, unproven thoughts as if they were...well...Gospel. [Assuming you believe in Darwin.]

So why the attacks on Tax_Payers beliefs as if they were so much hooey? He is obviously comfortable with it, as you are with yours.

Both are accepted on faith, simple faith.

I can accept a completely developed eye, for instance, slowly evolving from a single light sensitive cell perhaps, or even the brain, the liver, the pancreas, the lymphatic system, the immuno-defensive system, even the skin. But each developing at roughly the same rate, simultaneously arriving at a fully developed system from one specialized cell into a cluster and then into a complete human being? C'mon. That really stretches the imagination.

Nothing in the fossil record supports such an idea -- small changes in brain pan, jaw, teeth, height, posture, yes...but not a bone without marrow, for instance.

Actually, enufisenuf, arguing with people like Tax_Payer is more like wrestling with a pig in the mud. After a while, you come to realize that the pig enjoys it.

These people are beyond help. They have given up on critical thought. They have allowed mysticism to overcome logic. They have let themselves be circumscribed by zealots and herded together into spiritual "comfort zones" defined by dogma which have roots more in socio-political control than anything that can contribute to broad human development. They dare not venture beyond for fear of encountering reality that doesn't fit the mold. That's why they keep ranting about how "god is in control" and we should all "surrender to jesus." Their arrogance is only cover for their insecurity and a mask to hide their ignorance. Their arguments sound like a broken record because they can only spew forth the pablum they have been fed.

The mere concept of abandoning one's innate rights of freedom of thought and self-determination to yet another in a three thousand year-old line of messianic constructs would be humorous if it were not so sad. Humanity will, apparently, struggle to free itself of this quagmire forever.

So librul ... in your mind, the world can't become a better place until your beliefs are successfully forced onto everyone else? And with your supposed supremacy and downward view of anyone who believes in a supreme creator.. why can't you just ignore these "Christian zealots", let them have their own beliefs. Since you and your beliefs (according to your attitudes presented in your diatribe) seem to place you in such a high place, far above all who disagree with you, can't you just ignore the peasants below you in your selfish kingdom. You are so much better than those who believe, you should be able to look above the "broken record" you hear being spewed and let everyone in this country have their own beliefs without being subjected to such vile criticism.
The liberal 'politically correct' movement in the country isn't just trying to let everyone and their belief system live in conjunction with one another. It's motivated by extreme views, such as the one you've posted, in an effort to force your beliefs on the rest of the nation and remove the rights of the majority, whether right or wrong, just because you interpret the laws in a way that allows you to do so. This, my friend is much more arrogant than any Christian views I have seen.
