It was "an Obama-appointed judge."
Christian News started its coverage like this:
A federal judge appointed to the bench by then-President Barack Obama has ruled that local public schools who took students on field trips to a Christian sports complex in Missouri violated the U.S. Constitution.
Of course, just as in other accounts of the decision (except for the Turner Report post), nothing is mentioned about Judge Douglas Harpool saying there was nothing wrong with a school taking a trip to a place like Victory Ministries and Sports Complex.
The problems came with permission slips that were sent home with students saying specifically that Victory employees could involve the students in religious activities. The article also fails to mention Victory agreed to a permission slip that would remove the language, but Superintendent C. J. Huff did not send the permission slips home with the students.
Of course, information like that doesn't fit in with the narrative.
