Christian Parents Stand Up for your Children's 1st Amendment Rights!
As long as I have been in the field of education religion in schools has been a point of contention, especially Christianity. So, I am not surprised by the content of the opinion piece by Todd Stearns where a teacher in Indiana sent a note home asking parents of her First graders not to talk about God in school because it was "inappropriate". One parent sent a copy of the letter to the local Fox News affiliate and the school district backed down. We as adults need to step up and say no when our children rights are being squashed.
Of course there are those schools which will push back hard on some parents and this is why we need great civil rights attorneys.Jay and Jordan Sekulow and the American Center for Law and Justice is one such organization. aclj.org They are in the trenches fighting for the religious liberty our forefathers bled and died to ensure we get. If you find yourself in a position where you need support the ALCJ is a good place to start. Your kids have the right to say God, Jesus, Bible etc. They have the right to bring their children's bible to school for reading time. They have the right to tell their friends about their friend the Messiah. Do not let anyone force them to be quiet. As kids go back to school talk to them about this and let them know you want to know about anyone who may give them trouble. Maybe you will need to contact Fox News.
