It's a Public School-Sponsored Baptism Party!

From the state that brought you the Creation Museum comes the latest in religious buffoonery, this time with an un-Constitutional twist!

While the fringe (and even respectable media) work themselves into apoplectic fits of indignation over potential socialist indoctrination of our impressionable school-age youth by the evil Obama, one Kentucky school district is taking it to the next level: Actual indoctrination of impressionable school-age kids! Only it's acceptable, see? Because it's Christian.

A Breckenridge County High School football coach took the school bus and 20 football players to an impromptu religious revival. Nearly half of them were baptized. But it gets better! The freakin' superintendent of the school district was there, praising Jesus right along with them! I hate to resort to barbarous, foreshortened blasphemy, but OMFG.

Of course, the coaches claim everything was kosher because they paid for the gas (that went into the public school bus) and attendance was optional. Right, because a high school-age football player who desperately wants to be part of a cohesive team won't feel pressured at all to participate in a field trip endorsed by the man in the ultimate position of power (the coach) and the superintendent no less.

One parent is already pretty pissed off: "Nobody should push their faith on anybody else," concerned mom Michelle Ammons told the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Because the Breckenridge County School District appears to be clearly violating the principle of the separation of church and state by taking school-sanctioned Jesus field trips, we here at Pith hope Michelle sues the bejesus out of them.
