Atheist Unhappy that Arkansas State Football Team Wore Cross Decal Remembering Deceased Player Markel Owens & Equipment Mgr. Barry Weyer, Jr … University Just Handed Atheists a Major Victory
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN?
Let me just say the following, we are not a better country, nor a better people by continually allowing political correctness and Atheist thugs to dictate how we live our lives. The below story will show you just how far as a country we have fallen because every time a secular Atheist troublemaker makes waves, we cower. This has nothing to do with the “establishment clause” of the US Constitution, but instead everything to do with secularism looking to impose their ways on others and the others. If you think things have not changed in this country, and for the worse … think of the following. Think back to Nov. 14, 1970 and the plane crash that took the lives of nearly the entire Marshall football team and devastated a community. Remember the scene in the movie ‘We are Marshall’ where the coaches go to West Virginia and visit then Mountaineer head coach Bobby Bowden? That was a true story, discussed HERE by Bowden, and how so many years later he was brought to emotion. Do you remember the helmets that the University of West Virginia players were wearing, they had what on them? Who thinks back then any Atheist dare tell Bobby Bowden to remove the crosses from those helmets?
That was then, This is Now ... The Arkansas State University football team in Jonesboro Arkansas wore a small cross on the back of their helmets with the initials MO and BW in honor of their fallen team member and equipment manager, Markel Owens and Barry Weyer. Sadly, Weyed died in a car accident in June and Owens was shot to death in January 2014. The players thought it would be a special way to remember and honor both of them by placing a decal featuring their initials on the arms of a cross. According to Barry Weyer Sr., the father of one of the deceased being honored, “the players knew they were both Christians so they decided to use the cross along with their initials. They wanted to carry the spirits of Markel and Barry Don onto the field for one more season.” This is what sports and team work inspires.
But that was not acceptable to some trouble-making atheists who had no connection with the team, the players or those being remembered. An attorney contacted Arkansas State and told them they he was “uncomfortable” with the players wearing a cross decal and wanted it removed. Louis Nisenbaum, an attorney in Jonesboro, Arkansas, saw the team playing on television recently. He is the trouble maker who reached out to the university’s legal counsel to complain about the cross. Sadly, the gutless wonders and the legal department crumbled and allowed themselves to be bullied by atheist terrorists. When the hell are schools actually going to stand up for what is right, instead of acting like a bunch of ball-less wonders in the fact of secularism and Atheists?
Arkansas State University attorney Lucinda McDaniel agreed that the symbol was problematic, recommending that athletic director Terry Mohajir order it removed or alter it. Mohajir says after speaking with the university’s legal counsel they will modify the sticker removing any religious symbols, but keeping the initials. Gutless, just simply gutless.
In a statement released by the university, Mohajir stated:
“I am 100 percent in support of our coaches’ and players’ expression of faith, as well as their choice to honor the two individuals associated with our team who passed away by voluntarily wearing a cross decal on the back of their helmets. Unfortunately, we have received a complaint that use of the cross violates the Constitutional prohibition against separation of church and state.”
“After consulting with University counsel, we have been advised to either modify the decal or remove it completely. Thus, in order to ensure that we are in full compliance with Constitutional law, we will be modifying the decal to still honor the two individuals who are no longer with us.”
HOW IS THIS CROSS WITH INITIALS OF FALLEN TEAMMATES “ESTABLISHING A RELIGION?” It is not. It is honoring individuals who had died, nothing more, nothing less. The players VOLUNTARILY wore the decal on their helmets, THEY WERE NOT FORCED TO!!! The only thing that the player have been forced to do, is not wear the cross decal because of a belligerent, trouble-making and narrow minded atheist.
Athletics director Terry Mohajir said he wanted to fight the decision because the decal was intended to honor former player Markel Owens and equipment manager Barry Weyer, who both passed away this year. However, Mohajir said he had little choice but to follow advice from the university’s legal counsel to remove or modify the symbol.
“My job is to support our players and our coaches in their expression of any type of grief, and that’s what I was doing,” Mohajir told USA TODAY Sports. “Yes, it is unfortunate, and I am disappointed. However, we’re also going to uphold whatever legal advice we got, and that’s what we did based on the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. That’s what we were told we needed to do. So that’s what we did.”
Arkansas State, you might want to fire your legal council and get a backbone. At some point someone, some institution is going to have to stand up to these bullies. This cannot continue to happen.
Thanks Arkansas State, all you did by caving to Atheist thugs was to promote secularism and Atheism as seen by Freedom From Religion Foundation attorney Rebecca Markert comments when she told the outlet that the decision to remove the symbol is “great news” and that “putting religious imagery on public school property is unconstitutional.”
Nancy Pelosi To Bill Maher ‘Civilization as We Know It Would Be in Jeopardy’ if Republicans Win the Senate
WOW Really San Fran Nan, ‘Civilization as We Know It Would Be in Jeopardy’ if Republicans Win the Senate? Sadly this delusional fool believes that.
It is hard to believe that this crazoid was the Speaker of the House. From all of the deranged comments that came out of her mouth during the interview was the following, “Fear is a motivator, and we are not fear-mongers. The Democrats are messengers of hope, and that’s what we will continue to be.” HOPE and not FEAR MONGERS? Far from it toots. Your message of hope is one of making individuals dependent upon a federal government and forever being subjugated to it.
On the one hand, California U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi claims that Democrats are not “fear-mongers;” on the other hand, she believes civilization is doomed if Republicans take control of the Senate from Democrats in November.
The former speaker of the House made those dramatic, incongruous statements on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” which aired live from Washington, D.C. Friday.
Maher asked Pelosi about recent polling which shows that the GOP is likely to take over the upper chamber and asked, given gridlock in Washingon, why it matters that Democrats keep control.
“It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate,” Pelosi told Maher. “Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate.”
The sad, but all to common conclusion …

Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson Indictment in Child Injury Case … Warrant Issued for His Arrest (Update: Peterson Booked on Child Abuse Charge, Posts Bond)
AND ANOTHER BLACK EYE FOR THE NFL …
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas for reckless or negligent injury to a child. The indictment is in regards to Peterson hitting his 4 year old son this past summer with a branch, referred to as a switch, as a form of punishment. Peterson states that this is how he was punished as a child. A grand jury seated earlier this summer decided not to charge Peterson with a crime. However, that was not the case with the new one. According to accounts, the incident resulted in multiple injuries to the child. The boy lives with his mother in Minnesota but was on a visit to Texas several months ago when Peterson disciplined him with the switch. Peterson was taken into custody at 1 a.m. Saturday in Montgomery County, Texas, and was released on $15,000 bond, according to NFL.com. If convicted, Adrian Peterson could face two years in prison.
Adrian Peterson has been deactivated by the Vikings and will not play this Sunday against the New England Patriots.
According to law-enforcement sources, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson beat his 4-year-old son with a tree branch as a form of punishment this summer, an incident that allegedly resulted in multiple injuries to the child. According to reports, Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas for injury to a child.
The “whooping” – as Peterson put it when interviewed by police – occurred in Spring, Texas, in May. Peterson’s son had pushed another one of Peterson’s children off of a motorbike video game. As punishment, Peterson grabbed a tree branch – which he consistently referred to as a “switch” – removed the leaves and struck the child repeatedly.
The beating allegedly resulted in numerous injuries to the child, including cuts and bruises to the child’s back, buttocks, ankles, legs and scrotum, along with defensive wounds to the child’s hands. Peterson then texted the boy’s mother, saying that one wound in particular would make her “mad at me about his leg. I got kinda good wit the tail end of the switch.”
Adrian Peterson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin later released the following statement:
Adrian Peterson has been informed that he was indicted by a grand jury in Montgomery County, Texas for Injury to a Child. The charged conduct involves using a switch to spank his son. This indictment follows Adrian’s full cooperation with authorities who have been looking into this matter. Adrian is a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son. He used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas. Adrian has never hidden from what happened. He has cooperated fully with authorities and voluntarily testified before the grand jury for several hours. Adrian will address the charges with the same respect and responsiveness he has brought to this inquiry from its beginning. It is important to remember that Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement on Friday evening:
On Thursday, September 11, 2014, a Montgomery County Grand Jury, “true billed”, Adrian Lewis Peterson on a charge of injury to a child. On today’s date at 2:47 PM, a warrant was issued and entered for the arrest of Adrian Peterson for that charge.
Since the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office has referred the case to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, and the investigation has led to a, “true bill”, on a criminal offense, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will not discuss details in reference to the case or investigation.
At the time of this release, Adrian Peterson is not in custody at the Montgomery County Jail and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office does not have any details in the arrest of Adrian Peterson.
Peterson’s team, the Vikings, released the following statement on Friday evening:
The Vikings are in the process of gathering information regarding the legal situation involving Adrian Peterson. At this time, we will defer further questions to Adrian’s attorney Rusty Hardin.
One of the darkest weeks in NFL history took another disturbing twist Friday when a warrant was issued in Texas for the arrest of Adrian Peterson, the face of the Vikings, over his treatment of one of his children.
Peterson faces an indictment accusing him of reckless or negligent injury to a child stemming from Peterson’s decision earlier this year to discipline his 4-year-old son by beating him with a ‘‘switch.’’
The Vikings responded by quickly deactivating Peterson for Sunday’s home opener against New England at TCF Bank Stadium. Peterson will surrender to Houston police, his attorney said.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson turned himself in to Montgomery County, Texas, authorities early Saturday morning.
He was booked into the Montgomery County jail at 1:06 a.m. CT and released at 1:35 a.m. CT after posting the $15,000 bond.

74 year old Democrat Representative Jim Clyburn from South Carolina has come up with a sure fire way to get out the Democrat vote in 2014 … SEXTING!!! I am almost certain Bill Clinton might agree.
From the The Daily Caller comes the third-ranking House Democrat’s appearance on C-SPAN, where REP. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) accidentally misspoke and used the word “sexting” instead of “texting”. Oops. Sorry Wonkette, but this is funny. Like you have never pointed and laughed at anyone before. Nothing like some good, clean, innocent humor. Nothing mean intended here, obviously Rep. Clyburn not a big texter. However, with the problems facing the Democrats in 2014 thanks to Obama’s failures, sexting may be the only way to get out the vote.
“Use the tools that we have,” he said, according the Daily Caller’s clip of the appearance. “We’ve got great tools to communicate about everything else. We can text. What do we call it? Sexting. Let’s do some voting, organizing over the internet. We’ve got the tools. Let’s use them for a new massive movement that will make sure that we can have in November 2014 the kind of turnout at the polls that we had in 2012 in November.”

Michael Foley, Brother of Beheaded American Journalist James Foley, Says US State Department Threatened Us
IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE A GOVERNMENT OF, BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE … NOT ONE AGAINST THE PEOPLE!!!
In an exclusive interview with Megyn Kelly last night on ‘The Kelly File’ , Michael Foley, the brother of beheaded American journalist James Foley said that the American State Department threatened him personally. UNREAL. It is one thing for the United States government not to negotiate with terrorists and pay ransoms, but to hinder a family in trying to get their loved one back, at any cost, so-to-speak. It’s not like Obama was busy trying to secure Foley’s release. He was too busy on vacation and golfing.
Kelly: I’m wondering if you feel he [Obama] and the administration did all they could to get Jim back.
Foley: No, no. We’re appalled by the situation and you know, it went past not doing everything they could, they were actually in impedance and got in our way and that’s what really bothers me to the core. We were, I was specifically threatened by the Department of State about raising funds toward ransom demands for my brother. We were smart enough to look past it but it slowed us down. We lost a lot of time trying to regroup.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly last night on the Kelly File the brother of beheaded American journalist James “Jim” Foley, Michael Foley, expressed disappointment over how the Obama administration is handling the threat of terror army ISIS and in the administration’s handling of his brother’s capture leading up to his death. James Foley was beheaded three weeks ago by an ISIS terrorist and a YouTube video of the gruesome murder was posted online. President Obama was on vacation at the time and eight minutes after making a statement about the murder, returned to the golf course, a move a majority of Americans found to be in bad taste.
In reacting to President Obama’s speech earlier this week, Foley said he wanted to see a more involved strategy put on the table to stabilize the region. Further in reaction to a question posed by Kelly about whether the Obama administration did everything it could to bring James Foley home, especially after the Bowe Bergdahl swap and comments by Obama saying Americans leave no man behind, Michael Foley said his family is “appalled” by the situation. Foley also talked about how he was threatened directly by the State Department and said that when the family tried to get information from the U.S. government or from other allies, they were stonewalled
The Untold Story by the MSM … Ali Muhammad Brown Called Murdered 19 Year Old Brendan Tevlin as a “Just Kill” and said Was an act of “Vengeance” Against U.S. Military Killings in the Middle East (Update: Audio, PLJ’s Todd Pettengill)
The murder of 19 year Brendan Tevlin was an act of terrorism and a “Just Kill”.
Brendan Tevlin, a 19 year old college student was found shot to death in his SUV in West Orange New Jersey on June 25, 2014. It received little media coverage and the police initially called it as a robbery gone wrong.That is what it may have fist appeared to be; however, the murder of 19 year old Brendan Tevlin was far from a robbery, it was an act of terrorism and as the defendant, Ali Muhammad Brown, called it … a “Just Kill”. Ali Muhammad Brown, a devout Muslin told prosecutors that, “All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life.” Ali Muhammad Brown was earlier charged with aggravated murder in the June 1 shooting deaths of two young men in Seattle, WA, Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young and with first-degree aggravated murder in the April 27 shooting of 30-year-old Leroy Henderson in Skyway, south of Seattle.
Listen to 99.5 PLJ’s radio host Todd Pettengill from The Todd Show.
Please make sure to listen to NY radio personality Todd Pettengill’s comments. It is a must listen. Here is a blast from the past. I used to listen to Todd back in the 90′s when he was a co-host on WPLJ’s morning show with Scott Shannon. And before that when he worked at 92FLY in Albany, NY. Here is an individual that does morning radio, not hard news and yet he has done more to cover this story than all of the MSM combined. Once again we are witness to political correctness where the MSM refuses to cover what they consider uncomfortable. It is okay to riot in the streets when a black teen is shot by a white police officer, but it is not okay to even cover the story when a white teen is murdered as a result of domestic terrorism by one who follows Islam?
Todd Pettengill, host of WPLJ’s “The Todd Show”, discussed the death of Brendan Tevlin for more than eight minutes this morning, asking why the case has not received more attention despite the alleged murderer’s admissions that he killed Tevlin as an act of vengeance for U.S. military actions in the Middle East.
“It was in fact an act of jihad, perpetrated by a fellow American who sympathized more with those who want to annihilate us than with his own country and its people,” he said.
Essex County authorities have charged 29-year-old Ali Muhammad Brown with killing Tevlin in a West Orange intersection on June 25. Since being taken into custody on July 18, he has confessed to the murder, along with three others in Washington state, saying they were carried out as retribution for innocent lives lost in Iraq, Syria and other parts of the Islamic world.
Pettengil criticized President Barack Obama and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for not referencing the case in recent addresses and downplaying the level of threat radical Islamists currently living in America could pose.
He also chided the media for not bringing the story to the national stage, and focusing instead on other protests such as those in Ferguson, Mo., where an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, was shot to death by a police officer last month.
Ali Muhammad Brown
I understand why the MSM did not cover this story initially as it may have appeared as just another tragic shooting death in the commission of a robbery. But that is not the case now. This was a terror act. Where is the MSM, where is Eric Holder, where is Barack Obama? How is an America 19 year old boy murdered on American soil by a devout Muslim as an act of vengeance against US military operations in the Middle East and it is not covered as the terrorist act that it is?
Brown is a devout Muslim opposed to U.S. intervention overseas, especially Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran, prosecutors said.
“All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life,” he told investigators, according to the documents.
Brown further justified killing Tevlin by claiming the shooting was a “just kill,” meaning he targeted an adult man and did not put any women, children or elderly people in danger.
In police interviews, Brown described the U.S.’s military campaign in the Middle East as evil and said if a “man sees evil, then he must take action against that evil,” the court papers show.
Police maintained that the June 25 shooting started as a robbery.
Officers said Brown fired 10 shots into Tevlin’s Jeep Liberty when it was stopped at intersection early in the morning in West Orange, N.J. Then he got into the 19-year-old’s car and drove it to a nearby apartment complex to abandon it
UNREAL … SO THE US IS NOT AT WAR WITH ISIS, GUESS WHAT JOHN KERRY, ISIS IS AT WAR WITH THE UNITED STATES!!!
One day after President Barack Obama spoke to the nation and told us about the threat of ISIS and his strategy to deal with them, his Secretary of State John Kerry says we are not at war with ISIS. Unbelievable. After the tough talk of Obama saying, “if you threaten America, you will find no safe haven,” it is followed up of the weakness of Kerry refusing to say we are at war with ISIS. Kerry stated, that’s the wrong terminology. It is not a war, it is a major counter-terrorism operation. WHAT!!! The Obama administration is more worried about semantics than they are victory. John Kerry went on to say, there is “No need for “war fever” in ISIS operations. These are the wrong people, at the wrong time to be in charge.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration’s strategy includes “many different things that one doesn’t think of normally in context of war.”
“What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counterterrorism operation,” Kerry told CNN’s Elise Labott in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. “It’s going to go on for some period of time. If somebody wants to think about it as being a war with ISIL, they can do so, but the fact is it’s a major counterterrorism operation that will have many different moving parts.”
Kerry made a distinction between ISIS and terror groups operating in Somalia and Yemen.
Doesn’t this sound an awful lot like Obama changing the “Global war on terror” to ‘Overseas Contingency Operation’. How has that worked out for us America? Political Correctness kills.
As the famous line goes: Truth is the first casualty of war.
Calling it something else doesn’t change even that.
Especially that. Perhaps Secretary Kerry should consider the words of General Sherman:
“War is cruelty, you cannot refine it.”
Or redefine it
