Jewish family flees Delaware school district's aggressive Christianity

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]thoth_moon) This is fucking sad, people- haven't the Jews suffered *enough* religious persecution in the past?  Check out a few quotes from this article:

[Among numerous specific examples in the complaint was what happened at plaintiff Samantha Dobrich's graduation in 2004 from the district's high school. She was the only Jewish student in her graduating class. The complaint relates that local pastor, Jerry Fike, in his invocation, followed requests for "our heavenly Father's" guidance for the graduates with:

I also pray for one specific student, that You be with her and guide her in the path that You have for her. And we ask all these things in Jesus' name.]

[A former board member suggested that Mona Dobrich might "disappear" like Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the atheist whose Supreme Court case resulted in ending organized school prayer. O'Hair disappeared in 1995 and her dismembered body was found six years later.

The crowd booed an ACLU speaker and told her to "go back up north."

In the days after the meeting the community poured venom on the Dobriches. Callers to the local radio station said the family they should convert or leave the area. Someone called them and said the Ku Klux Klan was nearby. ]

Seriously, I'm surprised the Jews haven't called Jihad- or Eye for an Eye, or whatever- yet.  I really don't think I could fault them for it, you know?  Anyways, the article in its entirety can be found here: http://www.jewsonfirst.org/06b/indianriver.html, or, for those who don't like to mess with links:

Um, sorry about the all-bold lettering- I'm not exactly well-practiced at rich text cuts.
