School Forces Little Girl To Choose Michael Jackson As Her Idol Instead Of God

School Forces Little Girl To Choose Michael Jackson As Her Idol Instead Of God

Your First Amendment Rights? They don’t exist in America’s schools where teachers hostile to Christianity feel empowered to prohibit children from the free exercise of their religious beliefs.


A mother is angry after her daughter wasn’t allowed to write about God for a school assignment.

According to WREG, Erca Shead says her 10-year-old daughter Erin, a student at Lucy Elementary in Memphis, Tenn., was told she couldn’t use God as an idol and had to pick another idol for the assignment.

“It was so cute and innocent. She talked about how God created the earth and how she’s doing the best she can,” Shead told WREG.

“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.

Shead said her daughter wasn’t allowed to leave the assignment about God at school and that it must go home with her.

Instead of God, her daughter chose Michael Jackson as an idol and that was accepted.

…A school spokesman said teachers can’t promote religion, but there is not a policy preventing students from writing assignments about any God or religion.

It hasn’t been determined what form of action school officials will take since it looks as though the teacher is in the wrong.

It’s funny how these sort of errors always seem to go one way, isn’t it? The Christian loses her rights and the teacher that does it either gets a pass or a slap on the wrist. Rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat until you’re sick of it, but nothing ever changes.

Here’s an alternative idea: First, the teacher. End her career. Then, just maybe, just maybe it might send that first small signal that it’s not okay to keep doing this to Christians.
