And, as this story illustrates, it is usually being perpetrated by the Statists on the Left! Stacy McCain suspects The
Lutheran Radical Atheist Menace?
(Memphis) Memphis mother Erica Shead said she was angry after her 10-year-old daughter Erin, told her Wednesday, she wasn’t allowed to write about God for a school assignment.
“It was so cute and innocent. She talked about how God created the earth and how she’s doing the best she can,” said Shead.
Erin is a student at Lucy Elementary.
Shead said Erin was told she can’t use God as an idol for the assignment.
She said her daughter was told to start over and pick another idol.
“But my teacher said I couldn’t write about God. She said It has something to do with God and God can’t be my idol,” said Shead about what her daughter told her.
Erin told her mother she was also not allowed to leave the assignment about God at school, that it must go home.
On the second try, Erin chose Michael Jackson, which was acceptable.
“How can you tell this baby, that’s a Christian, what she can say and what she can’t say?”
Shead took her concerns to the school principal at Lucy Elementary Wednesday morning.
“Can you show me this in a policy where this child cannot talk about God on paper,” asked Shead.
Either the teacher is being thrown under the Shut the Hell Up You Christ-o-Fascists Bus, or the teacher is a radical that figured she could bully a little girl.
We reached out to Shelby County Schools Wednesday.
Spokesman Christian Ross said teachers can’t promote religion, but there is not a policy preventing students from writing assignments about any God or religion.
School officials wouldn’t say what would be done to correct the situation, since it appears the teacher was in the wrong.
So, the teacher IF it was the teacher’s call, ought to be fired YESTERDAY! But, I hope this mother pushes hard enough to find out the truth. This kind of Left-Wing child abuse MUST stop!
Now, the update the school is trying to weasel out by playing the “misunderstanding card”
“Shelby County Schools respects the moral and religious beliefs of all students and families. While teachers and staff are not permitted to promote religion in the classroom, no laws or district policies allow teachers to limit students’ expression of religious beliefs in their personal classwork. This was a regrettable misunderstanding, and we as educators must learn from it. The principal and teacher have had a positive and productive conversation with the family, and we are pleased this matter is being addressed at the school level. The district will not be discussing this matter further in the media.”
In other words, the school does not want any more negative publicity. Well, I hope, again, that this is pushed until someone, or multiple someones gets the boot! Anyone who would try to bully that girl should not be a teacher, PERIOD! This was not a mistake, this was a bigot trampling a little girl’s liberty!
The Other McCain sums it up, this is not education but RE-education!
Hostility toward religion — rejection of the Bible and of divine authority — is essential to the project of modern public education.
Lesson One: There is no God.
Lesson Two: Your parents are stupid.
Lesson Three: Being gay is awesome.
Whatever comes after that is optional, but it’s important that thesefundamental principles be taught in elementary school, or otherwise children might grow up to vote Republican.
And that would be a tragedy . . .
