Jerry Coyne is a Cowardly Cry-Baby who has his Panties in Knot

This is too funny. A High School principal in Lebanon, MO mentioned the word "God" several times during his speech at his High School's graduation ceremony. He did NOT endorse Christianity. He did not endorse Islam. He did not endorse any religion.

Most of the "God" references were of historical note- "In God We Trust" is on our currency. The Declaration of Independence talks of a Creator. And in a moment of silence the principal said he asked God to avail Himself in every possible way. He made his moment of silence public.

No endorsement of religion there.

However Jerry Coyne sez the principal violated the First* amendment. We will add the Constitution to the long list of things Jerry Coyne is ignorant of.

One lawyer said the following:

"Unless he says Lebanon High school officially recognizes Christianity or something to that extent, then that would be illegal, but that's not what occurred in this instance," said Wampler.  "So like it or not, is up to each person.  We can't have state or city churches either, but this does not establish a church."

Coyne is too stupid to grasp that simple fact.

    No, I fucked up. I confused his latest rantings about the Constitution. The week before it was about armed bears, bear arms or the bearing of arms.

    I changed the OP- thank you.
