Cup of Wrath
The lunacy and hatred of the anti-religious left is everywhere in America today. However, some of their attacks and antics deserve special recognition. So, to "honor" the most creative, nasty or just plain weird opponents of America's religious heritage, In God We Trust created the "Cup of Wrath" award. Here are the recipients.
The Bordentown, New Jersey Regional School District is this month’s recipient of the Cup of Wrath after administrators decided to ban religious Christmas music during concert performances at elementary schools. The school system’s superintendent Constance Bauer actually declared that “religious music should not be part of the elementary program[s]” in gross violation of the U.S. Constitution.
A South Florida college professor’s bizarre classroom antics have made waves for their shocking display of religious intolerance. Florida Atlantic University and Professor Deandre Poole each deserve a full draught from the Cup of Wrath for instructing his intercultural communications class to write the name “Jesus” on a piece of paper, then drop it on the floor and stomp on it.
One student, a devout Mormon, was so upset by the exercise that he lodged a formal complaint stating that Dr. Poole had offended his religious convictions.
In fact, the entire campus is in an uproar because the same student was suspended after making a formal complaint. FAU officials placed Dr. Poole on administrative leave, but insist that they removed him from the classroom only “for safety reasons” after the incident garnered a lot of media attention, not as any sort of indictment against Dr. Poole’s content or methods used in his class. The controversy has even caught the attention of Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R), who labeled the exercise as intolerant against Christianity and called on University System Chancellor Frank Brogan to thoroughly investigate the student’s claims. A simple web search for Deandre Poole lists him serving as vice chairman of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party – further proof of his liberal political views that are clearly on display in his classroom.
Public backlash against the FAU administration has forced their hands. FAU released the following statement: “Based on the offensive nature of the exercise, we will not use it again and have issued an apology to the community. It was insensitive and unacceptable. We continue to apologize to all the people who were offended and deeply regret this situation has occurred.” Important to note: FAU isn’t concerned at the content of Dr. Poole’s class; rather, they are just upset that the public got wind of it. We hope FAU and Poole enjoy every drop from the Cup of Wrath that they so justly deserve.

This month’s Cup of Wrath recipient is Kevin Weldon, the superintendent of the Kountze Independent School District in Texas. Weldon caved in to radical atheist demands and banned signs proclaiming faith in God from all school activities. The ban was put into place after cheerleaders at Kountze High School held up a banner featuring Bible verses.
The ban means any student participating in an official school activity cannot hold or create any sign, poster or banner that includes a religious message. “I called our legal counsel and they recommended to me that we instruct all administrators in the district that religious signs or messages would no longer be permitted at school district events and that student groups and their sponsors were to be notified of the prohibition effective immediately,” Weldon told Fox News.
For refusing to defend his students’ right of free speech, Kevin Weldon deserves a full draught from the Cup of Wrath.
Charlotte, North Carolina "civil rights" attorney George Daly is this month’s recipient of "The Cup of Wrath."
Daly, a radical lawyer who was already infamous for defending accused terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay, is now leading the effort to have a cross memorializing nine firefighters who died in a 2007 blaze removed from a Charleston, South Carolina fire station.
All nine of firefighters were Christians and the memorial bears the inscription "Charleston 9 6-18-07."
University of Texas at San Antonio President Ricardo Romo is this month’s recipient of "The Cup of Wrath" for permitting an atheist student group to hold a "Bibles for Pornography" week at his university.
A small group of atheists sought permission and received the blessings of the University to advertise an campus-wide effort to convince students to turn in their Bible or other religious texts in return for pornographic
