Cranston School Prayer Returns... as a lawn decoration?

The Cranston West Prayer Banner, successfully challenged in court by high school student (and my niece) Jessica Ahlquist, was removed well over a year ago and secured, Ark of the Covenant style, in an unknown government warehouse, has resurfaced in Riverside, Rhode Island as what can only be called a lawn ornament.

This version of prayer, printed on corrugated plastic, is mounted on a black plastic stand in front of a telephone pole at a private residence. For this reason I'm not revealing the address publicly, it's a private home and of course people are free to decorate their lawns in any way they see fit.

Still, this is, in my opinion, an odd choice for a lawn decoration. Personally, I would have gone with the Garden Gnomes.

Thanks to my friend Richard for the tip on this.


  1. CLIT? What does that mean (in this context)?

    1. I am the master of the C.L.I.T. Remember this fucking face. Whenever you see C.L.I.T., you'll see this fucking face. I make that shit work. It does whatever the fuck I tell it to. No one rules the C.L.I.T like me. Not this little fuck, none of you little fucks out there. I AM THE C.L.I.T. COMMANDER! Remember that, commander of all C.L.I.T.s! When it comes down to business, this is what I do. I pinch it like this. OOH you little fuck. Then I rub my nose with it.

  2. This could be so freaking easy. But nobody could claim political credit for their brand of religion. No Elmer Gantry motherfukkas rallying their teavangelical votes. None o' that sh!t:

    With tweaks:

    School Code of Ethics -
    May we find within ourselves each day the desire to do our best. To grow mentally and morally as well as physically. To be kind and helpful to our classmates and teachers. To be honest with ourselves as well as with others. May we strive to be good sports and smile when we lose as well as when we win. May we always understand the value of true friendship. May we always conduct ourselves so as to bring credit to Cranston High School West.

    BTW - consider the morality of the people who will sit around a fuming fire pit, smoking out their downwind neighbors, for their own selfish and inconsiderate "recreational" pleasure. Ask them about doing unto others as they would have others do unto them. Smoking out the downwind neighbors is never a moral act. (Been smoked out by loudmouthed Xtians in my home and on my property. Tried for municipal government remedy. Got a big mouthed wood burning preacher gathering his political troops to assassinate the town council who attempted to help via ordinance. He crucified them with cries of "Gubbermint Overreach!" and "Tyranny!" I guess his GOD inspired him to keep harming people suffering with breathing and other health problems. Religion is NOT morality.)
