Cringe-y influencer Ryan Foley began yelling about Jesus in a school lunchroom, exposing a security flaw in the Omaha school district
...and 𝘯𝘰𝘣𝘰𝘥𝘺 pelted him with mashed potatoes? No flying gobs of gravy? No airborne applesauce? 𝘕𝘰𝘵 𝘢 𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘭𝘦 𝘬𝘦𝘳𝘯𝘦𝘭 of catapulted corn? A more perfect opportunity for a good 'ol food fight I have never seen, and you wasted it! For shame, kids. For absolute 𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘮𝘦.
The only consequences Foley is likely to face is the massive outpouring of online ridicule, since it wasn't necessarily illegal. It was just a rude asshole spewing Jesus fueled douchebaggery. I hope the school district bans him from the property. At the very least, their security procedures should require an escort for any visitors.
The students laughing was good.
“sin runs rampant… through high schools.”
Man, I missed out.
Why are all of 'god's messengers' such absolute dipshits? You'd think an omnipotent being could either show up himself or send a better, more persuasive caliber of messenger.
He's probably still into High School boys and wants to make the gay ones as miserable and tortured as he is, "to bring them closer to Jesus". And to have a little something on the side who won't talk about it.
Why did this person go anywhere other than the front office? Transcripts should be handled there in the first place, don’t give kids or adults an opportunity to disrupt your classes by allowing them to wander around. Most of the folks getting transcripts are recent grads and still immature enough to pull shit like this or other prank type things. They are also the group that has been mostly committing the mass shootings in the past ten years or so. Recently graduated or expelled or drop outs or outcasts still attending. Not to mention white male christians.
For him to not notice how monstrously inappropriate this was concerning school shootings and not apologize for his poor timing shows how self absorbed this type of Christian is. What a dïck.
That a preacher got called on his proselytizing in a school is plenty noteworthy. That this particular incident happened in the Cornhusker State is considerably more so. Principal Heide Weaver handled this business at least reasonably well ... but she could have handled it BETTER. When she learned of Foley's behavior, her best action would have been to have Foley escorted to his office, whereupon she would address him as follows:

These loons simply can't operate without a captive audience, can they?
And notice he tried evading the school authority that eventually led him out. He knows what he's doing is wrong yet it doesn't dissuade him from doing it. And xtians call atheists "arrogant."
So, mildly mentally unwell or straight up narcissist? Next time, on Stupid Unsolved Mysteries. Seriously, the idea that any school kid in the US, let alone Nebraska, hasn't heard about Jesus is just ridiculous. Sad thing is I know there are people who think that all they need to do is here the Word from *them*, in their Humility(tm), and folks will just fall in line for Jesus. Arrogance.
Kids were laughing at him?
Foley, here's your sign... they're just not that into you.
How is preaching Christianity to Nebraska HS students "bold and courageous"? How about you take a trip to that island off India that shoots outsiders with bows and arrows? THAT is bold and courageous (but also suicidal).
"I don’t actually give a damn about his viewing habits or his sex life"
I do. Regardless of what you or I think, *Ryan Foley* clearly thinks his viewing habits and sex life are immoral. And he's acting out about it. This is him trying to "make up" for the sins he thinks he's making. In that respect, it makes us all safer* and our society more enjoyable if he figures his own sh1t out and thus stops doing antisocial proselytization. For sure, it'll make the HS students happier not to have creeper adults sneaking into their cafeteria to give unwanted diatribes.
So I hope he comes to terms with his stuff. Both because I think it'll make him happier, and because I *know* it'll make the people around him happier.
*Safer because look, this could just be the tip of a very bad iceberg. Nobody wants it to go further. Foley probably doesn't want it to go further. But in a year where we've had 130 mass murders in 88 days so far, it is not ridiculous to worry that a person so frustrated and upset at his own sexuality might do something reckless and dangerous as a response to his unhappiness. So the faster he figures his sh1t out, the better for all of us.
"Sin runs rampant...through the high schools."
Uh, no. According to police blotters, actual crimes against children are committed by Christian clergy practicing the literal laying on of hands within the walls of their private schools, their houses of worship, their youth camps, etc.
"“Impromptu announcements about religion” is quite the euphemism for preaching from a Christian evangelist who thinks underage kids make for good targets."
And so many of them do.
Joemygod is keeping a running total of christian" "men"-- double quotes required-- who have been arrested, or convicted, or sentenced for sex crimes against children. Priests and pastors, every ome of them.

Schools shouldn't need to be forts. The only forts children should have to deal with are made of blankets.
OT- Demonstrating that mice are sneakier than fascists, Deathsentence's stooge-stuffed replacement board for the former Reedy Creek Improvement District has discovered that their predecessors left a few... 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘱𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘦𝘴 for them on the way out the door: https://apnews.com/article/disney-world-desantis-florida-theme-park-65ba19dd7af7927b07185f52d0a6e2a7
Among other things, the district's new board is prohibited from using... well, basically 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 associated with the Disney brand. Which, considering how important a Disney theme park is to the district they've been handed responsibility for, is going to be a pretty tough legal minefield to navigate... because there are Mickey heads all over everything in the area including power poles and road signs.
My favorite part, though?

Xtians were given ONE RULE just one SIMPLE rule about preying (oops) praying. Do it in the closet. J was VERY VERY clear on that. And yet that is the very first rule that so many xtians break as soon as they join the club.
