What would you do?? Persecution??
Well, this is where the story gets ugly. The students brought there Valentines to class but the teacher catches the verse on it and makes the student throw the Valentines in the garbage. :( HOW SAD!!! Now we know we live in a democratic nation right?? We do know that teachers are not allowed to share their faith unless the topic is brought up by a student. There is no law that restricts a child or student from sharing their faith.
There is a Christian Law Association that can help you if you have any similar stories happen! http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/1999/08/02/associations-right-in-schools
So this mom was a bit angry but frustrated and sad at the same time. Her actions are pretty awesome daring. In her words "God continue to be my strength and fire in my belly." She wrote a press release to the local paper and the paper is now sending a reporter to her house and running the story on Friday! She contacted the lawyer and principle and in the morning she went to the principle but he refused to talk with any lawyers. Now she is moving on to meet with the superintendent.
We will wait and see if the school will make an apology and make this right. I pray that GOD will be glorified through this!!!
Have you had to protect your children's first amendment rights? Have you faced persecution and stayed strong for HIM??
Would love to hear thoughts and would love if you shared this story with others!
JOHN 3:16- For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
If I find the article in the paper I will try to share it on my blog as well, but it will not be out till Friday.
