Citing the Bible, TN School Board Member Rejects Gay-Straight Alliance Club

Again a person using their religious beliefs to force others to obey their version of god.  This person says his god comes before all state laws, federal laws, the bill of rights, and even the constitution.   He wants a theocracy built on his his god and his version , forcing everyone to do as he sees fit.   He is a religious asshole.  There is more at the link below.     Hugs

Tecky Hicks, who works as a Baptist pastor, said that if the GSA group was formed, he would urge parents to pull their kids out of school.

Hicks told board members he took the same oath as [Vice Chairman Debbie] Shedden, but he believes the Bible supersedes the Constitution of the U.S., the Bill of Rights, the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact, school board policy, the state constitution “and everything else.”

“Therefore, based on that, there’s no way under God’s heaven I can approve any such club in our schools,” Hicks told the board. “I’ve got a daughter who has a child in second grade this year, and she has already made the decision that if something like this is approved by our board, she’s pulling her kid out of school. I would suggest, and I’ll make it a public statement, that every person in the county who has that privilege — do it.

“I’ll take my stand on what I believe above and beyond anything man has ever made because the Bible plainly teaches that we are to subject ourselves to the authority that’s over us as long as the authority doesn’t overstep the bounds of what God has said it ought to be. God settled that over 2,000 years ago, folks, and I’m going to stand on it until hell freezes over.

He took an oath… and then promptly refused to follow it because being a religious bigot matters more than doing what’s best for students. That’s his philosophy. While the district might be better off without families that think like him, it’s a sad statement that the existence of a club for students he thinks are Hell-bound is enough to make a push for homeschooling. (Would he say the same thing about a club for atheists? Jews? Hindus?)

    • This is why I get more and more anti-theist. People like this make it hard to give space to religion because they do not want just to believe they want to control others also. It is totally infuriating, especially as a gay man this guy would like to erase from existence. Hugs

    • Yes, I agree, yet he is forcefully trying to make everyone do as he thinks his god demands. I do notice that these people tend to believe their god has the same views they do. If they are against something their god also is against it. If they think it wrong , their god has the same idea. Really makes one wonder. Hugs

  3. An oath should be important to him then.

    He likely placed his hand on a bible when he took the oath
    He likely didn’t interject his oath with words like “as long as it’s gods will”
    He is there by baring false witness, lying and in a way stealing from those who placed trust in him to uphold his oath.

    Thou shalt not lie nor bare false witness is a commandment.
    /smdh
    Selective enforcement of the commandments seems like a real stand up christian to me! NOT

    • Thank you Michelle. I agree. I have no problem with him having faith or an issue against these types of clubs. What gets me upset is his idea he doesn’t have to follow the laws because of his religious beliefs. There are a lot of people who would like to say “oh I don’t believe in that law so I can ignore it”. Ron would bee speeding like crazy. The other thing is he seems quite willing to ignore how other people see or feel about something. Hugs

      • “there’s no way under God’s heaven I can approve any such club in our schools,””
        But he approves Priests among the clergy that rape Children. That is a fact
        Why doesn’t that go into normals peoples brains?

        Could the reason be, that their POTUS with the biggest brain, is semiprofessional in only one capacity: twittering excessively?

        • You ARE generous to call his tweeting semi-professional.
          Maybe if Kindergarten is the standard of professional. If not you’re being WAY to generous.

        • You may have something Miles. It is a known fact that tRump bragged about walking into the dressing rooms of the teen pageants when the girls were changing and some were exposed. I have always wondered why that did not create more outrage than it did. If a gay guy said he like to walk into a room of boys changing the cult of tRump would have a meltdown. But tRump perving on teen girls they are OK with. Weird. Hugs

    • Hello Tony. You must know that not all those who abuse boys are homosexual, the two things are not connected. Homosexual does not equal pedophilia. But you know that. Plus what does this have to do with the post? Seems you are missing the point. Hugs
