Public schools tend to go overboard with eliminating any reference to religion. Well, not any religion as much as one in particular. I’ll give you a hint, it’s focus point rhymes with Chesus Jrist. But remember, they’re not “against” your religion. Nope. Don’t be narrow-minded. But in Wisconsin? They don’t want it anywhere near the school. But I’m sure they have, like, a super good reason for it you guys. So let’s get into it. I give you the controversy over “Jesus Lunch.”
The high school allows students to eat lunch off-campus. In 2014 a small group of parents began meeting with their children in a nearby park — providing home cooked meals along with a Christian-themed, inspirational message.
The small weekly gatherings in the fall and spring eventually morphed into a popular gathering spot for hungry kids — with nearly 500 turning out for all sorts of goodies — ranging from Chick-fil-A sandwiches and fresh fruit to hundreds of homemade brownies.
“We show up every week just to show the love of Jesus,” parent Beth Williams told me. “Our mission statement for Jesus Lunch is ‘food for the body, nutrition for the soul.’”
Well that’s cool. Off campus. No church/state argument. Once they leave campus, they can do whatever they feel like, right?
Middleton-Cross Plains school district officials are doing more than urging parents to stop serving “Jesus Lunches” to high school students at a public park every Tuesday.
They have been physically trying to block the parents from using the park.
School officials set up cones to block parents from using the parking lot at Fireman’s Park, near Middleton High School, on Tuesday, according to Phil Stamman, an attorney who is representing the mothers involved with the Jesus Lunch program.
I see. But Jesus Lunch is NOT on campus. If it’s not on campus, it doesn’t matter what they do… right? Wrong. I’ll explain more below. These Christians are not having Jesus Lunch on campus. They’re not forcing Jesus Lunch on atheists, Jews, Muslims or members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti God.
So what’s the problem?
The belief in Jesus. The belief in God. The belief in a higher power other than mother earth, government, or Anita Sarkeesian. The belief in right and wrong. Why? Because if one believes in moral rights, or this thing that used to be called “the good” then one must also believe in “the bad.” Jesus, the controversial figure who calls for you to abandon sin (as best you can) to follow Him, calls for his followers to be good (as best they can). Therein lies the obvious problem: JUDGEMENT.
If someone is doing good, that means someone else is bad. Therefore HOW DARE YOU JUDGE ME YOU CHRISTIAN. I CAN LIVE HOWEVER I WANT. I LOVE SPAGHETTI. I WILL WORSHIP IT WITHOUT YOUR LOOKS OF PITY/HUNGER. NOW PASS ME THE PARMESAN AND GET YOUR JESUS FISH OUT OF MY FACE.
I don’t know what the flying spaghetti monster can do, but Jesus is great at lunches. Remember that time he fed the masses by multiplying the loaves and the fishes? Or that other time he turned water into wine? Good times, yo. That’s one guy you want at your lunch gathering.
But remember, leftists aren’t anti-Christian. They’re super pro-tolerance and pro-diversity. If you say otherwise, you’re a hateful bigot.
