US Rep: Atheists trying to spy on Christian student groups

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A northwest Louisiana congressman says “atheist litigation groups” are trying to spy on Christian student groups at a school in his district.

Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson made the allegation on what is described as his “campaign/personal Facebook page.”

The Times of Shreveport reports that he declined through a spokeswoman to answer questions about the alleged attempts to get private investigators to make hidden video of Christian activities at Benton High School, or to name the source of what his post describes as “very credible information.”

A trial is scheduled April 8 in a federal lawsuit alleging that Bossier Parish schools promote Christianity.

It was filed by Washington-based Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. That group says it has not hired investigators to spy on students.

The fog and clouds lifted late Friday morning, and that meant the sun finally shined brightly for much of the day. While it doesn’t have a lot of power this time of year given we’re only a week away from the winter solstice, it still helped warm us into the mid 30s.
