We all love tradition and those things that make our communities and schools different. We especially love those traditions which encourage our children to follow us in the faith and lifestyles that we have. This was the case for one Texas high school. Dan Noll of White Oak High School was in the habit of quoting a verse of scripture every morning during the announcements. He called it his “Thought of the day.” But this has now ceased as a practice.

(A)ccording to KETK-TV, an anonymous student at White Oak High School recently contacted atheist blogger Hemant Mehta after recording Principal Dan Noll quoting from the Bible during the announcements.
This means that a good biblical practice that has been going on for almost 40 years is now going to stop because one person did not like the word of God. Our country has turned into a reverse democracy. It is not the majority rule, but the minority. If you feel left out or ostracized, then we must change everyone’s life to fit your likes and concerns. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. And what is worse, we allow these whiny unconstitutional babies to win without any struggle or cost.
At first, it seemed that the School Board was going to backup Dan.

Superintendent Michael Gilbert stated last week that he didn’t believe that FFRF should be given any media attention, and advised that Noll would not be punished for quoting Scripture during the announcements.
“The residents were offended at the use of Scripture, demanding that it be stopped and calling for disciplinary action against Mr. Noll,” he stated. “I am fully aware of the practice at the high school and will not pursue any action against our high school principal or any other member of our faculty/staff concerning this issue.”
But this did not last long. By Saturday things had changed.
But on Saturday, the superintendent advised that Noll will no longer read from the Bible during his “Thought for the Day.”
“We’ll still be doing our thoughts of the day and it will be something that promotes positive thoughts and positive choices,” he told local television station KTRE.
This points to one of the signs of God’s judgment upon a land.
“The Lord shall cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you will go out one way against them, but you will flee seven ways before them, and you will be an example of terror to all the kingdoms of the earth.
It may be that God is making America an example to the nations. This is the end awaiting those who turn their back on Christ.
