Damon Fowler Kicked Out of Parents' Home

Bastrop LAWhen we last left Damon Fowler, the brave Louisiana high school student who complained about the prayer planned for his public school graduation, we saw that the class valedictorian prayed even after the school said they would not have any prayer at the ceremony. Now it appears that Damon's parents have thrown him out of their home, tossing his possessions on the front porch and leaving town. How's that for Christian love?

It sounds like the next step for Damon will probably involve moving to Texas and living with his brother. It certainly is fortunate that he has at least one supportive family member. After all that has happened, I suspect that leaving Bastrop behind is a smart move.

But you know what? It really pisses me off that people are still essentially being run out of town in 2011 in the U.S. merely for standing up for the separation of church and state.
