Uneducated administrators who practice anti-religious rhetoric against students and teachers can be taught!
January 16, 2012

In recent years, public school administrators have fallen for the lies of anti-religious groups like the ACLU, Freedom From Religion Foundation and People for the American Way.

Using baseless fear tactics, these groups have intimidated superintendents and principals into ignorance and cowardice as it applies to religious rights in your child’s school.

For example, teachers and coaches are being fired and students are being punished for simply being who they are – Christians.

Last week in Phillipsburg, NJ, a substitute teacher was fired because he answered a student’s question about his faith. When the student asked for, and received, a Bible from the teacher, Walter Tutka was immediately dismissed.

In another absurdity, a constitutionally-protected student Bible Club in a Western New York public school was ordered by administrators to remove a prayer request box.

In other cases, students are being told they can’t read their Bible during lunch, or that expressing the Christian faith during a class discussion is not allowed.

The truth is...Students, parents and teachers have the right to express their faith in public and private - including in our schools and universities.

TAKE ACTION 

These three organizations stand ready to defend rights of students and teachers who come under religious intimidation by over-zealous school administrators.
