Once again, Christians are the target of bias and unfair treatment. I highly doubt that a Muslim Principal would have been fired for bringing his prayer rug to school and allowing a volunteer muslim student prayer group to use it! MB
A GEORGIA HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL SAYS HE WAS FIRED AFTER HE READ THE BIBLE AND PRAYED WITH A GROUP OF STUDENTS DURING A VOLUNTEER CHRISTIAN GROUP MEETING.
“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” Matthew 24:9 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: Since Obama has been president, the rise of persecution against Bible believing Christians is off the charts. From bakers and florists who have been bankrupted for not servicing LGBT weddings, to school teachers being fired for reading the Bible, the climate in America has changed. Soon it will be illegal to hold a bible study, even in your own home. This is what the future looks like in Obama’s America.
Regardless, the school district superintendent put him on indefinite administrative leave just two days after the meeting and informed him that his contract would not be renewed.
“I want prayer in this school,” outraged parent Angila Waddell said. “I am proud to see our football team take a knee and pray before and after games. And also in clubs. And we’re just shocked.”
Lehr is reportedly now focused on finding on a new job in order to support his family.
Meriwether County Superintendent Carol Lane told News 3 in an email, “ I never comment on personnel issues. I’m sorry that I cannot provide you with any information. Possibly at a later date. Thank you for your inquiry.”

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
