Christians Under Attack

Posted on April 17, 2008. Filed under: Education Idiocy, Liberal Idiots, Religion, Reverse Discrimination |

Below are two articles that remind us that Christians are under attack. A teacher was asked to hide his Bible and a student’s artwork was banned because it had a Bible verse reference in it. When are mainstream Christians going to stand up and fight this?? Everybody is just sitting back and letting it happen, and as long as we do that it will only get worse.

Students at the Mount Vernon, Ohio, school district have called a ‘take-your-Bible-to-school day” tomorrow in support of a popular teacher who has been ordered to keep his Bible hidden while students are in his classroom.
Coach Dave Daubenmire of Pass The Salt Ministries and Minutemen United, who is acting as a spokesman for teacher John Freshwater, told WND the campaign has been organized by students using cell phones, text messaging and e-mails.
“It’s for both middle school and high school,” Daubenmire told WND, with plans for students to not only carry their Bibles, but to wear Christian-themed T-shirts.



District bans ‘John 3:16,’ promotes demonic leer
Court filing seeks elimination of penalties for Christian art

A court in Wisconsin has been asked to suspend immediately a policy in the Tomah Area School District that bans Christian symbols in students’ artwork, but allows Hindu, Buddhist and satanic representations.
The motion was filed yesterday by the Alliance Defense Fund, which has taken on the case of a student identified by the initials A.P.
The ADF launched a lawsuit on the student’s behalf after a teacher refused to give him a grade on a project because his work included “John 3:16” as well as “As sign of love.”

The school district, however, openly acknowledged and publicized various pieces of art representing Buddhism, and Hinduism as well as several demon faces that appeared satanic.
The school defended its actions:
“Respect for the beliefs of a diverse student population … requires that the district treat all students equitable and fairly regardless of their faith,” it said in a website statement.
To meet our responsibilities, students are required to follow the rules of conduct for their classrooms and the instructions that their teachers give them for class assignments. While the district respects all students’ religious freedoms, those freedoms are not a license for students to force the school to display religious messages of their choosing…”
The ADF said the teacher’s grading policy banned depictions of “blood, violence, sexual connotations, [or] religious beliefs.”

But in practice it was a discriminatory policy, the ADF said in a court motion seeking an immediate injunction against the school.
“Allowing demonic depictions by some students while prohibiting Christian religious expression in artwork by others is a blatant violation of the Constitution,” said David Cortman, senior ADF legal counsel.
The lawsuit was filed late last month after the student’s artwork was rejected, then he was told he had signed away his First Amendment rights at the beginning of the semester in order to participate in the class.
The ADF’s motion noted: “While penalizing A.P.’s religious express, defendants prominently display[ed] in the school’s hallway a large painting of a six-limbed Hindu woman riding a swan figure. … Elsewhere, on a hallway bulletin board, there hangs a drawing of a robed sorcerer.”
The law firm said the district displays artwork reflecting Hindu, Buddhist and satanic themes all over.
