That was implied in radio comments by Bryan Fisher of the American Family Group, Tupelo, Mississippi. He said the Freedom From Religion Foundation, headquartered in the “North”, (Madison, Wisconsin) is waging the ”Second War of Northern Aggression”, the first one being the Civil War of the 1860′s.
It is true the FFRF is marching through the South like a Northern General, stopping prayers at public meetings and in public schools. Local stuffed shirts do not like it one bit.
Prayer on public property in the South is so common, it is open season all year long for FFRF. They force a different local government somewhere in the South to stop prayers about 15 times a month. Years from now, they will eventually make a small dent in the Bible-belt South.
That FFRF has found the economic model to do this work on such a large scale is remarkable. Other groups have had public prayer projects, ACLU, American Humanist Society and others. But these latter groups could not mount such a large force.
There are different explanations as to how FFRF can finance a full court press. For one thing, it is located in Madison, WI, instead New York City or Washington, D. C. Then, it is able to bring in lots of internship help from the University of Wisconsin.
In sports metaphor, ”small ball” is winning with bunts and stolen bases instead of home runs. FFRF wins many small battles and will make permanent progress in the separation of church and state.
The North will rise again.
