"florida high school athletic association" Discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast

"We had a military head in schools, you know, what can we say to that those people now who maybe have went through this, you know, ten, 15 years ago, but they're not saying, hey, this gives us an opportunity. This idea of separation of church and state is not that they are these two blocks that never do me. It's going back and I want to explain that one a little more for folks so that they can, you know, for those who have been indoctrinated saying, oh, you can't have a cross on public property. You can't pray at a school board meeting. In terms that now can lighten them a little bit more. How does this lemon overturning, but this candy case helped them? Yeah, separation, I mean, number one, it's not in the word separation of church and state or nowhere in the constitution. And most people think it's in there. It's not. The first clause of the First Amendment says, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. And in other words, we are not going to establish a national church that everyone has a support. That's what they came from from the Church of England. That is it. I mean, that's all that's in there. So there's nothing about separation of church saint. It's not about it's about not having an established church. Which I don't think we're in danger of the denominational differences and all the diversity out there on that. There is no way we would ever have. We can't even have two bad discharges in the same room. There's first and second, can't even come together, right? So I'd say that first. It's not in the constitution. It's not what the constitution says. But the concept, they even violate the whole concept. The concept of the idea of separation of church and state is that it's an institutional separation. It's we don't want the church one church to control the government. We don't want the government to control a church, right? And so that is an instant and that's something we could probably all agree with, right? But they never use it that way. So when you go into dissent in coach Kennedy's case, it's Sotomayor talking about how damaging this is to separation of church and state. And you're sitting there going, excuse me, but I see the state on one side, but on the other side, there's no church. It's coach Kennedy. It's one guy. And this is the thing I love about our constitution is even the powerful state has to bend its knee to one thing. And that's the United States Constitution. So one guy coach Kennedy can beat the powerful state because he has rights to free speech, and he has rights to the free exercise of his religion. But they always misuse it, what they're really trying to say is you can't have any religion around government. And it's really a sort of a sneaky way to try to shove religious freedom into the corners of society because government is everywhere. So I mean, we're dealing with one of these right now in Florida. We are just filing in federal appeal. Two Christian schools were in the state football championship in Florida. And the Florida high school athletic association refused to let them have a prayer before their game. Why? Because they said the microphones they were going to be used since it was at the facility there was government owned that was for government microphones. So that's so they can't. So if that's true, you can't mention your faith on a public sidewalk. You can't, you can't pray or you can't bow your head over your meal in the park. That's not America. It's never been America. That's a violation of the constitution, but this perversion even of the proper understanding of an idea of separation of church and state is how they sort of try to take a wrecking ball to religious expression. So if you look at our First Amendment though, Doug, it starts out. It says Congress shall make no law respecting establishment of religion, no established church, or the free exercise thereof. So what they were saying is we want full and complete free exercise of religion. And one of the ways we're going to make sure that that occurs is we don't want any established national church. And so that's what they're saying. So this idea of trying to use the government to create hostility to religion or push religion out of the public sphere would have been appalling to the founders. And what I love is, as you said, is we've now got justices who, instead of doing what they want to do, are looking to what the constitution says, their originalist, which means they actually look to what is the original meaning of the text. And when they do that, it's taken us back to those founding principles and what it really meant, which is a great thing. And it's happening in every area. That's why they looked at roe V wade and they were like, this is not in the constitution. Right. You know, if you want to pass it, pass it, but it's not in the constitution. So people don't understand this, Doug, they, it's the first time in 80 years that we've had a majority of justices who think their job is to find the original meaning of the text. Now that's shocking to most people. But the understand, we've been under a majority that thought it's a living breathing constitution. We need to look at it and really kind of move it to where things are today. So really they were acting more like politicians and legislators overall, but that's gone now because you've got justices that say it doesn't matter whether what I think should happen, it's a matter of what was the original meaning of the text and what I love about that is it's taken this back to those founding principles that are in the constitution. Exactly, Kayla, and it's also taking it back to actually the justice is looking at a piece of legislation and saying, how does this relate to the constitution? And if the legislation gives you X authority, it doesn't give you more authority..

Rent in Tampa alone is up 20% in the past year. A Florida Christian school has a new ally in its fight over pregame prayer that was not allowed at a football championship game. The State Department of Education's 28 page brief filed with an appeals court in Atlanta claims the Florida high school athletic association disregarded First Amendment principles when it refused to allow Tampa's Cambridge Christian school to pray over the PA at its 2015 championship game. Even those secular messages were allowed. It says the association didn't offer a compelling state interest for restricting speech and that a lower court ruling should be overturned. In that ruling, judge Charlene Honeywell found the FHS double-A as a state actor and did not violate the law. I'm Gordon bird.
