The Pensacola News Journal reports on the “crusaders”: Pace principal: We won’t back down

It may cost him his job, but Pace High School Principal Frank Lay says he won’t sit back and watch student leaders be denied a chance to speak at their own graduation — despite worries they may violate a federal consent decree.

“No way are we going to back down, back off, lay down or roll over,” he said to the applause of more than 700 people who attended a Students’ Rights Rally at Pace Assembly of God on Tuesday night.

Lay said it is time the community takes responsibility.

“The blame game is the devil’s game,” he said. “It is the devil’s distraction for what we need to do, and we need to get busy as Christian people.”

In other words, the consent decree, which saved Frank Lay’s job, is too restrictive because it prevents Frank Lay from indoctrinating students into his personal creed. People shouldn’t look too closely at who is to blame for the existence of the consent decree, because it turns out, it is Frank Lay.

Two students at Frank Lay’s high school complained that their civil rights were being abrogated by the way that Frank Lay included proselytizing into every event at the school, and rather than firing Frank Lay and telling the teachers to stop it, the board signed a consent decree and told Lay to cut it out.

Frank Lay needs to start his own church or get a job at one of the “Christian” high schools in the area, not expect the public to provide him with a salary, a staff, a facility, and a captive congregation.

I think he wants to be a “martyr” so he can make real money in the religion racket.
