A middle school coach’s wife yelled racial slurs at the opposing team at a football game. Across town at a high school in the same district, a Christian Athletes guest speaker event went south when two teachers ordered their entire classes to attend the event, refused to let them leave the room, and subjected them to an evangelical revival. Now Facebook is the platform for and against hate speech and those favoring religion in school, or those claiming the necessity of bringing Jesus to save “our” children’s souls from those who believe in the separation of church and state, or religious freedom. None of these posts is civil, thoughtful, or useful. STEP BACK.
I take the temperature of people entering our health clinic. Anyone over 99.5 degrees is sent away. If we took the temperature of America, or even that of the world, we would be SENT AWAY.
