“No Prayers For You”


by Jerry Newcombe, D.Min.

The Supreme Court is considering a new case related to school prayer. This story began in 2015 when high school football Joe Kennedy got on his knees at mid-field after a game and thanked God quietly.

Kennedy was fired for this act by his employer, Bremerton High School in Bremerton, Washington. He sued to get his job back.

Fox News (4/25/22) reports: “Lower courts have all ruled for the school. The 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals concluded that by kneeling and praying in view of students and parents, Kennedy ‘spoke as a public employee, not as a private citizen, and his speech therefore was constitutionally unprotected.’”

Fox News quotes Rachel Laser, the president of Americans United for Separation of Church and State: “No child attending public school should have to pray to play school sports.” But his defenders note the coach was expressing his own…

Supreme Court Rules State and Local Government Cannot Ban Faith-Based Schools from Public Funding


June 21, 2022 Sundance

A major win for parents and school choice today in a 6-3 decision from the Supreme Court [pdf Ruling Here]. The high court ruled that Maine violated the Constitution by refusing to make public funds available for students to attend faith-based schools. The ruling is broad and makes it clear when any state and/or local government choose to subsidize private schools or provide vouchers for school choice, they must allow families pay for religious schools.

Teachers’ unions, left-wing indoctrination institutions and the media are not happy with the Supreme Court decision.  The ruling now makes it possible for state or local school vouchers to be used for private, faith-based schools.  Those schools also have religious exemptions on the types of material and educators they allow in their education programs.

In the bigger picture the court has again affirmed ‘freedomofreligion‘ not…

Endless dreams and boundless imaginations!

It was time for a riot when people started fleeing from Bangladesh to India. Pilu and her husband Ramesh with two of their families and lots of people from their village left their house forever and gathered at Dhaka railway station. Suddenly people started running and Pilu also did so and caught a train, they found Ramesh and his family were not on the train. Pilu’s dad searched all the compartments but couldn’t find them. Pilu started crying. They came to Kolkata and tried all the way but in vain. The telephone was rare then and they tried in the newspaper but nothing worked.

Pilu was then three months into pregnancy. Tear became her permanent companion. She stayed with her parents and brothers. There she gave birth to her son and her parents tried to get her married but she never agreed. The beautiful days of three years with Ramesh…

Torino-Milano-Bologna: 330 chilometri di Siccità


Facile o difficile? Fotografare la “SICCITA‘” è facile o difficile?

La sfida viene lanciata dagli esigentissimi fotografi del Circolo Fotografico Chivassese NO PIXEL che, mettendo in palio un premio, chiedono una fotografia centrata sul tema della SICCITA’ … oltre a svariate altre iniziative in campo fotografico (non ho partecipato a questa splendida iniziativa perchè le immagini devono essere riprese nel Comune di Chivasso).

Insolito tema perchè qui in Piemonte è sempre piovuto: dalla nebbiolina, alla pioggia torrenziale, a quella che dura tutta la notte, al diluvio con vento lampi e tuoni, neve, grandine, goccioloni, secchiate e l’immancabile pioggerella autunnale che però dura 4 giorni e allaga tutto!

Da un anno a questa parte (dall’Estate 2021), invece, è cambiato. Perchè la SICCITA’ non si presenta alla vista, ma arriva sotto mentite spoglie. Si presenta come una splendida giornata di Sole, cioè non una, ma come una…
