By way of Rocky Top Brigade demigod South Knox Bubba, we get this little piece o'news from the Nashville area: Armed guards at child 'camp' questioned by state official
A Nashville church that's fighting to keep from registering its daily child ''camp'' as a state-licensed day-care center posts armed guards on the church grounds, which is raising alarms for state human services officials.Not the quick invocation of "atheist" to characterize a legal obligation they don't agree with... Sheesh....
The church also defied a court order yesterday and continued with its day camp, which accommodates more than 150 children up to age 5.
Priest Lake Community Baptist Church officials say that the guards carry their weapons legally and that the state is trying to force an ''atheist'' view on the congregation by requiring it to register as a day-care provider.
State officials say that under the law, any child-care provider cannot have any weapons around children.
