(Fox News) Atheists are threatening to sue a Texas school district over religious plaques that have hung in front of two elementary schools for nearly 20 years.
One of the controversial plaques reads, “Dedicated in the year of our Lord, 1997, to the education of God’s children and to their faithful teachers in the name of the holy Christian church.”
Tiffany Devlin and Pastor Justin Coffman, who both have children who attend the schools, joined Ainsley Earhardt on “Fox and Friends” this week to discuss the infringement on their faith.
Devlin explained a majority of parents support the plaques, and they don’t think now is the time to be silent about it.
Coffman said they want to see the cause of Christ more visible in public and in schools, not less.
“That’s really what I as a parent and a community minister am all about,” Coffman said.
The atheist group – which is based more than 1,000 miles away in Madison, Wisconsin – has a history of going after religion around the country.
“I am bothered by the fact that a group can come into our community that is a strong, majority Christian community and say what we can or cannot have,” Devlin concluded.
“To me, that is very frustrating.”
