Another Attack on Religious Freedom

October 8th, 2014

Licking - prayerThe Columbus Dispatch reported this week that the Licking Valley School District has received letters from a liberal Wisconsin-based organization called the “Freedom From Religion Foundation.”  This group routinely bullies local districts and municipalities trying to deny religious freedoms and rights of conscience with trumped up “anonymous complaints.”  The most recent complaint was based on a picture on the district’s Facebook page showing a student-led prayer by football players before a game.  The cause for offense?  The coaches bowed their heads as well!  

CCV has reached out to the school district and asked attorneys that specialize in religious freedom to engage this issue.  Please pray for the Superintendent and Board of the Licking Valley School District.

UPDATE to “Pray 4 Marriage” Webpage

August 15th, 2014

CCV would like to sincerely thank all of the churches and individuals who took time to pray for marriage in all the ways listed here. Thank you for praying for wisdom and discernment for the three judges on the panel of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.

We are cautiously optimistic that two of the judges will decide to uphold the constitutionality of the Ohio Constitution’s Marriage Amendment (along with similar amendments in Michigan, Kentucky, and Tennessee). Many legal experts and journalists who attended the hearings reported that Judge Jeffrey Sutton, thought by many to be the swing vote in this case, was rightfully suspect of whether it was the court’s proper role to decide an issue that should be decided by the people at the ballot box. Left-leaning MSNBC reiterated this observation in an article published this week.
