[Ed. – No one is required to avail himself of this lunch. The school administration is clearly biased, off-base, and outside its authority here. Note that if these were Muslim moms, you wouldn’t hear a peep out of the school. You know perfectly well that’s true. In fact, if parents objected to a lunch served by Muslim moms, the school would defend the Muslim moms’ rights, vigorously and promptly.]
School administrators in Middleton, Wisconsin have intensified their threats and intimidation of a group of mothers who host a weekly “Jesus Lunch” for students at a park adjacent to Middleton High School.
New video shows school officials physically confronting one of the moms in the park — as one woman’s stunned husband observes from a distance. The moms were undeterred and told school officials they were going to serve lunch regardless of their objections.
“These ongoing attempts to suppress free speech by school officials are disgraceful,” said Phillip Stamman, an attorney representing the moms. “These mothers devote hours each week to serving the students with free meals and a brief message about Jesus. They should not be bullied or harassed — but praised.”
Stamman said his clients have been repeatedly threatened by school officials – but they refuse to comply with their demands to cease the non-denominational religious gathering.
