The biggest question of all is why a Christian rock band was invited to a public school assembly in the first place and were moreover given a chance to deliver a sermon to students. Whether intentional or not, such violates the separation of church and state.

Well, after a bit of reading, it appears the school district is keenly aware of the illegal nature of the performance and are taking action to prevent similar situations in the future.

He thinks he is resigning to be a superintendent, but when the new school board learns of his actions as principal they may have misgivings on giving this creep cart blanch.

There have to be some people in Arizona who at least realize the legal problems they may be placing themselves in with this jerk. If they're smart, they won't mess with the feds over separation of church and state as well as homophbia which he brings to the table.(Am I too optimistic?)

Personally, I only know of 3, my sister inlaw, nephew and a former neighbor of my husband and I. Hopefully there are many more but given some of the headlines out of there...
