The American Humanist Association (AHA) is about to learn a very important lesson -- folks around Gainesville, Georgia don’t take kindly to out-of-town atheists trying to bully their children.

More than 200 people turned out in defiance of the self-described atheist group early Thursday morning for an impromptu prayer rally in the middle of the Chestatee High School football field.

The previous day, the atheists (acting on behalf of a single, unnamed citizen) sent a letter to school officials demanding that the football coaching staff stop participating in team prayers and that they remove all biblical references and religious messages from team documents.

To best of anyone’s knowledge around Gainesville, no one associated with the football team has a problem with the voluntary prayers. The atheists says that’s beside the point citing the Establishment Clause.

The atheists apparently went undercover to photograph coaches engaged in what they considered to be unseemly and unconstitutional behavior with the teenage football players.

“We have received reports that CHS coaches have joined players in prayer while standing in a circle, hands interlocked,” the atheists breathlessly reported in their letter to the Hall County School District.

Hands interlocked? I can only imagine that atheists across the fruited plain shuddered at such damning evidence.

The atheists also got upset because the team workout schedule included the words “Fortitude 2014, Gal. 6:9” and the cheerleaders wrote a Bible verse on a large banner: “Iron Sharpens Iron, Proverbs 21:17.”

Cleanse the school of religion or prepare to be sued, the atheists warned.

As we say in the Deep South, local residents are preparing to back up and bring it.

“If the atheist group doesn’t like the prayer, tell them to stick their fingers in their ears,” said one caller to radio station WDUN.

Go Gainseville; give AHA the "hell" they deserve!

People are just going to have to get in the face of these people. Prayer, flying the American flag, IRS, EPA, census bureau. Demand they leave your property. Stop cowering down to these people. This is America.

I agree...why are muslims allowed in this country and permitted to build mosques all over our Judeo-Christian country??????

IF AMERICAN ATHEISTS DONT LIKE US PRAYING OR READING OUR BIBLES , THEY ARE WELCOME TO MOVE TO NORTH KOREA . NO BIBLES THERE .

OK Georgia, how come you teach illegal aliens in your midst IN SPANISH.

Why don't you guys have the balls to tell the Mexicans TO LEARN ENGLISH??

Huh?

Satan is taking all he can before Jesus return. So many will discover, as did the rich man who mocked Lazarus, then found himself in Hell while watching Lazarus in Heaven, that God will NOT be mocked!

Coming to Georgia and telling them to stop praying is like telling a life long gun owner he can't hunt here in the mountains. The atheists that start pushing to hard just might piss off one of these Grandfathers and they just might get a interdiction to God Him self. Sooner then they wanted. There are many Mountian Men in the mountains of North Georgia. Some so far back in the Mountians the sun don't shine. This will be a interesting fight. Bring it no Atheist I can't wait to see how you fair here with this attack on these Mountain Christian. The bears have got to eat too.

I'm liking what's going on in Georgia.  My dad grew up there and I may have to move there and complete the cycle.

Pamela, we here in The great state of Georgia are always welcoming Constitutional Christian Americans to hold our ground to a higher value. You are welcome to be part of real Americans here in North Georgia. Perhaps the South will Rise Again.

I think there is a church on nearly every conner in my GA town. I love it!

The real question is do they preach the gospel of Jesus Christ or do they merely hold their positions of trust in vain? Why do so many of our church leaders fail to preach the truth about current events in this country and how the Word of God debunks and destroys these godless principles used to fuel the division among our citizens? Are they refusing to preach the truth for fear of losing their tax exempt status? If so, they have prostituted themselves to the government of men!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
