Fighting For the Culture

Sometimes it seems that surrendering to secularism and progressivism in US culture is the default answer, but it ain't inevitable by any means.

Hundreds of residents took to a high school football field Friday night to collectively bow down and pray — a massive response to atheist activists’ recent accusations that a local school district is guilty of at least two violations of the separation of church and state.

But the prayer event wasn’t the only noteworthy response to secularists’ complaints, as local resident David Hoover placed three large Christian crosses on land he owns across the street from Licking Valley High School in Newark, Ohio — 10 to 13-foot symbols intended to send a message.

As TheBlaze previously reported, a free speech debate touched off in the city after the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a secular activist group, accused the Licking Valley High School District of violating the First Amendment by allowing high school marching band members to wear T-shirts with the word “salvation” on them during a recent performance.


As the Chik-Fil-A kerfuffle of a couple of years ago showed, Christians and conservatives haven't fully surrendered to the forces of secularism and progressivism, but it takes a lot to motivate people, and the Left is nothing if not persistent.
