A high school football coach from the state of Georgia got booted from his position after he held a baptism for 20 players on school grounds, an event that took place back in October. As we all know, everything is permissible on the grounds of a public educational facility so long as it has nothing to do with religion, specifically Christianity. Want to be a teenage biological male who wears girl clothes and uses the women’s locker room? No problem. Want to wear cat ears and take a dump in a litter box, hey we’ll accommodate that too.
Students have proclaimed faith in Jesus Christ and want to get baptized in obedience with the Word of God? No way. No. Not going to happen. We don’t cater to bigotry, only insanity. Welcome to the state of American society in 2023. It’s a jungle out here.
Check out more details on this story from the good folks at Breitbart News:
Tattnall County High School coach Isaac Ferrell had local pastor Gary Few baptize the players on Oct. 23. A video on the team’s official Facebook page shows Few baptizing the players one at a time in a large tub of water. Tattnall County High School superintendent Kristen Waters announced Ferrell’s firing after the baptism, but claimed his removal from coaching is not related to the baptism service.
“Based on the outcome of an investigation into an incident that occurred Friday night, Nov. 3 while traveling after the football game, the District decided that it would seek a Head football coach that aligned with the best interests of the students,” Waters announced.“As to any other allegations, the District does not comment during ongoing investigations,” the statement continued.
While the school fired him from being the football coach, he’s still allowed to keep his separate teaching job at the facility, however the investigation into the incident is still going on, according to school officials. Once upon a time, nobody would have cared about seeing a bunch of kids profess faith in Jesus and then get baptized at school. It would have been hailed as a good thing. But we’re a godless culture now, which should be obvious given how hard leftists in public education push for kids to be indoctrinated with all sorts of sexual deviancy.
The school began investigating the baptism service after it received a letter from the nonprofit Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF). FFRF, which claims to be a “state/church watchdog promoting the constitutional principle of separation of state and church,” said it learned of the baptism after being tipped off by a “concerned district community member.”
FFRF claims in an article posted to its website that Ferrell was “abusing his position” and committing a “constitutional violation.” They also wrote that student athletes have a “First Amendment right to be free from religious indoctrination when participating in their public school’s athletics program,” and said student athletes are “especially susceptible to coercion.”
“We write to request that the District investigate this situation and ensure that this school-sponsored religious coercion ends immediately,” an attorney who works for the foundation, Chris Line, sent a written letter to superintendent Kristen Waters on Nov. 1. “All coaches and staff should be instructed regarding their obligations as public school employees.”
“The district must refrain from infusing its football program with religion, and Coach Ferrell cannot be allowed to preach to student-athletes or allow a local pastor to preach to and baptize students,” Line added in the written communication with Waters.
Line then sent a statement out to News 3 not long after Ferrell was fired as the coach saying, “We are glad they are looming for a new coach who will abide by his constitutional duties.”
