Atheists Fail In Attempt To Stop School Choir Performance At A Montana Church



Praise GOD; a victory for Christ in the war on Christmas !!!

Alliance Defending Freedom is reporting a religious freedom victory in Montana.

“Alliance Defending Freedom sent Kalispell and Whitefish Public Schools a letter commending the school districts for rejecting two secularist groups’ attempts to stop student choir members from voluntarily participating in a community Christmas festival held at a local church.”

Litigation Staff Counsel Rory Gray said, “Schools should not have to think twice about whether they can allow choirs to participate in community Christmas events. Courts have unanimously allowed students to sing Christmas carols at school. Nothing changes when they sing the same Christmas songs at a community festival instead. We commend the districts for rightly ignoring the baseless threats delivered by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Freedom From Religion Foundation.”

In their letter, Alliance Defending Freedom explains that “every federal court to examine the issue has determined that including Christmas carols in school choir performances fully complies with the First Amendment.” Performances at a church do not promote religion but allow students “to serve the wider community with their talents, see and learn from other choirs’ techniques, and gain valuable performance experience in front of a large audience.”

The Alliance Defending Freedom has made it known that they are ready to freely assist public schools if the ACLU and the FFRF take legal action and continue their unfounded demands that school choirs be excluded from the community Christmas festivals. Senior Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco says, a handful of misguided complaints and a misunderstanding of First Amendment law should not be allowed to harm students and deprive them of education experiences that serve the community. We hope other school districts will follow Kalispell and Whitefish’s example and reject the religious discrimination these groups promote.

I thank the Alliance Defending Freedom group for their outstanding support in these matters and praise these schools in Montana for standing up to these misguided atheist organizations.

After serving in the United States Navy for 22 years I retired from the service late in 1991. Having always loved the southwest, shortly after retiring, I moved to the Albuquerque area where I have resided since. Initially I worked as a contractor for approximately 6 years doing cable construction work. That becoming a little dangerous, at an elevated age, I moved into the retail store management environment managing convenience stores for roughly 16 years. With several disabilities, I am now fully retired and am getting more involved with helping Pastor Dewey & Pastor Paul with their operations at FGGAM which pleases my heart greatly as it truly is - "For God's Glory Alone". I met my precious wife Sandy here in Albuquerque and we have been extremely happily married for 18 years and I am the very proud father to Sandy's wonderful children, Tiana, our daughter, Ryan & Ross, our two sons, and proud grandparents to 5 wonderful grandchildren. We attend Christ Full Deliverance Ministries in Rio Rancho which is lead by Pastor's Marty & Paulette Cooper along with Elder Mable Lopez as regular members. Most of my time is now spent split between my family, my church & helping the Pastors by writing here on the FGGAM website and doing everything I can to support this fantastic ministry in the service of our Lord. Praise to GOD & GOD Bless to ALL! UPDATED 2021: Rick and Sandy moved to Florida a few years ago. We adore them and we pray for Rick as he misses Sandy so very, very much!
