Atheist Groups Demands Investigation after 18 Alabama Football Players Are Baptized
Please share to spread the news:

“We request that the district investigate and take the appropriate steps to ensure there will be no further illegal religious events, including team baptisms, during school-sponsored activities.”

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is taking an Alabama High School to task after 18 football players were baptized last month. According to Fox News, 18 players for the Washington County High school were baptized in a feeding trough by Chatom Baptist Church’s pastor in May.

The event was recorded and posted to Facebook where most people rejoiced in the sight. One person, however, seemingly did not find the baptism of the players appropriate, prompting them to reach out to the FFRF.

According to Fox News, the FFRF – an atheist law firm claiming to fight to protect the separation of church and state – sent a letter to the Washington County Schools Superintendent in May, claiming that the coach was participating in “illegal” activities because of his involvement in the players’ baptisms.

The letter claimed that one resident of the 1,200 people living in the town of Chatom contacted the FFRF upset that the players were baptized, some by the coach.

Christopher Line, a legal fellow at the FFRF, wrote in his letter to the Superintendent that it is “illegal for coaches to organize or participate in religious activities with students, including baptisms.”

He continued, “We request that the district investigate and take the appropriate steps to ensure there will be no further illegal religious events, including team baptisms, during school-sponsored activities.”

“Coaches and school staff should be instructed that they can neither organize nor participate in religious activities with students while acting in their official capacity,” the fellow continued.

Evangelical pastor Franklin Graham weighed in on the complaint by thanking God for “coaches and teachers across our country who are boldly living out their faith in Christ.”

 

Congratulations to these 18 football players and their coaches from Washington County High School in Chatom, Alabama! …

Just One Pastor Stands Up to acknowledge and congratulate!

Where is the Body of Christ in all this? This is ridiculous! Obeying government stops at the point when Christians are told they can no longer worship God and serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Wake up from your slumber! Do something! Speak up, do you not know the difference between good and evil anymore?

It’s no longer possible for Christians to sit on the sidelines with their mouths shut. We are members of the body, the Body of Christ, which is His Church. What are we afraid of? We already have victory through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

‘But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.’

I Corinthians 15:57 

‘If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. ‘

Romans 12:18

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.

Ephesians 5:11

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
