The efforts to purge Judeo-Christianity out of the public sphere are increasing, but fortunately a latest attempt at censorship was foiled. A Nevada school overstretched when it censored a little girl, the daughter of a pastor, from including one – just one – Bible verse in a project.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports,
Somerset Academy apologized Friday to a 12-year-old student who had been denied the use of a Bible verse in a school project in February, according to the Liberty Institute, which represents her family.
Sixth-grader Mackenzie Fraiser had originally been told by a teacher at the North Las Vegas public charter school that she couldn’t use the John 3:16 verse in a PowerPoint presentation titled “All About Me,” which had to include an “inspirational saying,” Liberty Institute said.
When Mackenzie’s father, a pastor, found out about the incident in late April, he contacted the school and received a letter from Assistant Principal Jenyan Martinez telling him that when Mackenzie submitted the project, “the matter became one of having a captive audience that would be subject to her religious beliefs.”
Mackenzie on Friday was being allowed to resubmit the project with the verse included, the Liberty Institute said.
Legal counsel from the Liberty Institute, a Texas-based religious rights law firm, on Wednesday sent the school a demand letter asking for an apology and gave officials 10 days to respond to avoid legal action.
The apology letter, published on Liberty Institute’s website, says the teacher and administrators acted in good faith but that they were wrong.
Parents, children and patriots need to continue fighting back against the stamping out of our religion from society. This country was founded on Judeo-Christian values and principles, and once we desert them for Shariah law and atheism, we will no longer be a bastion for freedom and tolerance, a beacon of light for the rest of the world.
