The Constitution is pretty clear that anyone can’t be prohibited from free expression and practice of their faith. The school treads dangerous ground when they take authority not granted to censor, or prohibit the free exercise of faith.
Some brave students in West Virginia are not letting it stand anymore. According to WOAY News, these students let the world know that they were suspended from school for protesting that omission of “one nation under God.” After liberals deleted God from the Pledge and these students wanted to protest it, they got suspended!
A couple dozen Spring Valley High School students have been suspended after they wanted to protest the school’s decision to remove “one nation under God” from the pledge of allegiance–something that Christian students saw to be a deliberate choice.
One student at Spring Valley, Alexis Potter, explained the students’ exchange with the principal. “We all sat together and said we’re not leaving until you say the pledge right. She said I’m not going to associate with you guys. Not the time or the place,” reported WCHS News.
“We were sitting in the commons today. She said herself I was debating on whether to put one nation under God in the pledge,” said Brianna Fyre, another student. “We got suspended for two days and we wanted to talk like civilized people with her and she refused.”
Tammy Forbush, Spring Valley High School Principal, says that she left the line out as a mistake and that the entire matter was a massive misunderstanding. However, when some students insisted that they say the pledge correctly, she decided to discipline them for refusing to go to class.
Some parents are voicing their concerns over these anti-Christian sentiments. “I think it’s very unfair. My daughter was suspended for two days. As of yesterday, my daughter was told not to bring a Bible to school,” said Misty Maynard, just one of many concerned parents. “How do you come to grips with this?”
Many other parents planning on speaking up at the next school’s board meeting, and some even plan to seek legal counsel.
That’s wrong, a person should not be punished/ persecuted because of their faith, I mean come on we have Muslims that come to our Christian country and have more rights than our own USA born children?
I have not seen any Muslims punished because of their faith so why are the Christians being persecuted?
We have to help these kids share this and expose the truth!
