The threatening letters from FFRF continue to swamp school districts around the country.
The Blaze is reporting today that several schools in Portland, Oregon will now back out from performing at a choral festival called Grotto’s Christmas Festival of Lights, a traditional event the schools have participated in for years. The Grotto is evidently sponsored by the Catholic Church.
As usual, the FFRF claims a student complained to them — continuing an amazing trend of anonymous complaints that nobody can identify.
While Portland schools caved quickly others are taking up the fight. In Elkhart, Indiana a school district claimed performance and attendance at these events were optional and thus not a violation of any law. They appear willing to go to court over the matter.
Expect a lot more schools to fall victim to FFRF complaints and threats of lawsuits.
