Pagan parents sue Tennessee schools, link revival to attacks


Students pray during a three-day revival in Maynardville, Tenn. A lawsuit accuses local schools of supporting the event and says a 14-year-old student has been assaulted and harassed for her pagan beliefs.

MAYNARDVILLE, Tenn. — Every year, hundreds of Union County students take a field trip for the soul. Children are excused from class, loaded onto school buses with teachers and sent to Christian revival meetings for three days.

"I am going to ask you a question," an evangelical leader recently yelled to a sea of students ready for their field trip. "If you are glad to be here, say amen!"

With the ardor of a pep rally, the students shouted back: "AAAA-men!"

Not everyone is so enthusiastic. ...

There were 5 forms of the Inquistion. They are the Episcopal, Legatine, Monastic, Roman, and Spanish. The Episcopal was first in 1184, in operated in France. Pope Innocent III set up the Legatine under the Cistercians in 1198. Pope Gregory IX set up the Monastic Inquistion in 1231, under the control of the Dominicans. These three are usually lumped under one term, the Medieval Inquistion. It lasted until the Catharist heresy died out (no pun intended). The Roman inquistion started under Paul III in 1542, Galileo was imprisoned under this group, it was the least active and the most benign. The Spanish Inquistion started in 1478 by the Government of Spain. They were looking for Jews and Moors who have converted to Christianity for political or social reasons. I have read the the Pope of the time had wanted to end the Spanish Inquistion but needed the support of Spain to defend against other forces that were after his hide. The Pope may be infalliable, but he can still be a failure as a human being. Se la guerre!

The argument that the starter(s) of the Inquisition might not be a man/men of faith doesn't help your argument much. The man who started the Inquisition was Pope Gregory IX, according to Encarta, and those who allowed it to continue were also Popes. Spanish tool or not, it could have been shut down by the Pope.

This brings up and interesting paradox in your thinking. The Bad Prots in England were not Christians because they responded with violence. Couldn't it be true of the Inquistion as well? Maybe they don't reflect the heart of what Catholics stand for? One reason they call it the "Spanish Inquisition" is because it was a tool of the Spanish monarchy. The English did worse to the Irish and their own Catholic citizens.

DM,
Notice that the article also doesn't state who was involved in this "attack" on this girl, if there was one involved at all. It could have been any number of unchristian pagan kids too. Born again Christian people who truly love the Lord speak for the Lord, their WORDS offend other people, and the other people are the violent responders. I challenge you to find one New Testament believer who was one of God's true children who responded with violence. You can't do it, because Christ's children don't respond with violence. When someone's heart is sawn asunder with the true gospel of Christ, he gets mad and angry and responds with violence--i.e. RCC, inquisition etc. All your rhetoric about the protestants in England/Europe doesn't mean anything. If they responded with violence, they were most likely showing that they were not truly born again by the Spirit of God, no matter what their title. Don't put us in the same boat. There is a world of difference.

Your comments didn't miss the mark at all; we're all just keeping quiet to avoid the Inquisition. :^)

praise god for the out reach to the children,this 14 year old girl was probally offended a great deal,we must understand that for 14 yrs of her life she has been programed to her pagan beliefs,but why would her parents consent to her going?what we need to do his pray for this child and her parents,not condemn them for what they think is truth.and in response to dm standards comment yes children can and are that cruel to make fun of someone,we must see that ignorance breeds ignorance and to some degree we all live in ignorance,but what we need and what it takes to reach a lost and dying world is the true love of jesus shining thru us, which only comes from true surrender of our hearts unto him.and can we honestly say as A TRUE CHRISTIAN THAT WE HAVE DONE JUST THAT?

The full article (linked and it works) actually describes some of what is alleged to have gone on; some verbal abuse, taunting, and even some violence. Thankfully, no permanent physical injury is documented, and given that this is a federal lawsuit now, there is some doubt about the testimony to begin with.

On another note, we probably shouldn't take this too seriously. After all, a true revival comes not from the arrival of the evangelist, but from a Holy Spirit-led repentance on the part of God's people. Right?

In short, we need to preach true repentance and revival of the heart, just like always. God bless each of y'all.

I find it hard to believe that my very close friends and fellow Christians of the Baptist persuasion would go so far as to harass people who do not share their belief system. Neither do I believe that children would intentionally torment a fellow classmate just because they are different. And, I would never stoop to sarcasm!

"Attack"? Wonder why the article did not define attack. By not doing so does it not stand to reason that the practice of these students is being attack. What is the result of the students going to the revival? Does it make them a better student and classmate? Does it result in a student with less disciple problems? I believe the answer to all these question is yes. This would make this field trip an asset both to the student and to the school system. If the case goes to trial and a jury is picked will they pick a pagan jury or a Christian jury. To witness to someone may be consider an attack, however, not being allowed to witness is also an attack on the first ammendment right of freedom of speak.

Notice that the article doesn't give any proof that she was attacked. Christians in the true sense of the word don't attack others for their beliefs or assault them. Maybe this girl was "attacked" by someone giving her a Bible verse. That sounds pretty violent.

It makes me very angry that this young girl was attacked. I wonder ir her attackers were "Christian"? If they were I would like to ask the attackers if they think they are doing Jesus Christ a favor by attacking the young girl? Ignorance has no boundries!

Well, if it's brought to federal court, I suggest that Union County Schools secede from federal funding. Might have to change the county's name, of course, but it would still be the right thing to do.
