    SCHOOL GOES BALLISTIC OVER 'JESUS LUNCH' IN PARK

    'Superintendent repeatedly tried to confront them'

    School officials in Wisconsin were caught on video trying to intimidate parents into closing down a weekly “Jesus Lunch” for hungry kids in a local park, and now the police are involved.

    Mothers in Middleton have been hosting a Jesus Lunch 16 times per year since 2014 in Fireman’s Park. Students from Middleton High School, who may eat at local dining establishments, often choose a free lunch provided by the mothers. The religious message shared with meals was the catalyst for targeting the gathering, which has grown from a small handful of students to hundreds.


    “We are asking you to allow our legal counsels to consider this together because this is certainly a question you contend is a First Amendment right,” Donald Johnson, the superintendent of the Middleton-Cross Plains district, recently said to the mothers after blocking the park entrance with hazard cones. “We contend that this is really an issue of our ability to exercise our lease for the city. We think that cooperation is really the way to go.”

    I don't know about this one. If the school lease makes the BOE responsible for the park during school hours then I can see where there is a problem. All it takes is one student getting sick from the "Jesus" lunch and they have a lawsuit. It appears that school liability is the only issue here. But if you read some of the comments the right wingers are having a hissy fit. Why not have the free "Jesus" lunch on Saturday? But then I wonder how many kids would attend?

    Really, you think it's food poisoning they're worried about?

    If this had anything to do with islam the school would be out there with other students to show their tolerance and hand out prayer rugs

    “Fireman’s Park – a public park owned by the city of Middleton – remains accessible to everyone in the public for the purposes of assembly and free speech,” lunch organizer Beth Williams said in a statement. “By law, the lease agreement between the city and the school district of Middleton does not privatize the park.”


    The school district contends it has jurisdiction over the park because its lease applies to school hours

    Yes I do, food poisoning and any other incident that would put the Board of Education and the taxpayers in a liability situation. Lawyers will sue over a cup of McDonald's coffee

    But if you read some of the comments the right wingers are having a hissy fit.
    [B]Right wingers or jesus believers which is not you.
    WOW you are amazing to be able to tell my religious beliefs just by my opinion on a legal situation.

    You may believe that to be true but I doubt it would happen.

    I noticed in your cherry picking of my post that you ignored my comment on having the "Jesus" lunch on Saturday when the school isn't legally responsible.

    strappy is really going off the deep end.
    His insulting remarks are beginning to reach bean's level.

    Here is an idea strappy ... keep your opinions of others beliefs to yourself.
    You really don't have a clue. The continuous feeding from the hate filled bigots has polluted your feeble mind.

    The forum is open for expression of opinions ... just not opinions of the forum members like bean constantly does.
