Take, for instance, the case of the football coach and school teacher down in Alabama.
"Lauderdale County High School head football coach Bob Grisham (pictured) has been suspended without pay for making an insulting remark about the First Lady’s posterior and spewing negative comments about gays during a psychology class discussion that took place last month in Rogersville, Ala., reports The TimesDaily.
Grisham, who also teaches psychology and driver’s ed, criticized the First Lady’s physique by stating, “Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight!”
Male voices are overheard interjecting comments during the discussion, with one referring to Mrs. Obama as a “fat gorilla.”
Holding the distinguished honor of Coach of the Year for leading his team, the Tigers, to the state’s semi-finals last year, Grisham then took his rant further left by discussing gays in the classroom, stating, “I don’t believe in queers. I don’t like queers, I don’t hate them as a person, but what they do is wrong and an abomination against God.” [Source]
The coach was suspended for ten days without pay for his rant. I am quite sure that the good folks of Lauderdale County will take up a collection in church next Sunday morning for him.
Speaking of church, if you happen to live in the state of Arkansas and you believe that the devil will send his angels in human form to disrupt your church going experience, you now have a right to take your glock along with your bible when you are heading to the house of worship. Whatever happened to Exodus 14:14?
a measure that would allow concealed guns to be carried in churches and houses of worship, and the governor’s office says it plans to sign the bill.
The measure, which passed 85-8 on Monday, gives houses of worship the option of allowing concealed weapons.
Passed by the state Senate in an equally lopsided 28-4 vote last week, the bill states it is “immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health, and safety” because “personal security is increasingly important.”
“A person should be allowed to carry a firearm in a church that permits the carrying of a firearm for personal security,” the bill reads.
The bill was originally sponsored by Republican state Sen. Bryan King from Green Forest, a rural town in northern Arkansas. In an interview with CNN, he called churches "soft targets" that deserved to be able to protect themselves." [Source]
I thought that was God's job.
