Atheists have been challenging Christianity for decades, trying to take the warm and loving embrace of God out of our schools.
A major victory for God took place in Florida at the start of July after it was determined that the Bible would be reintroduced back into public schools.
The case, known as S.B. 436 or the “Religious Expression in Public Schools” statute restated that “(s)tudents have a right to refer to religion in their schoolwork, so long as it relates to the lesson at hand,” and “have the right to pray without interference, so long as they’re not interrupting the lesson at hand,” according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The bill, signed into law last month by Florida Gov. Rick Scott, also made note that schools are not allowed to prohibit students from wearing clothing and/or jewelry with religious messages, or from starting their own student prayer groups.
It was a subtle way of reminding educators and school officials that kids have rights too, and that school interference with students’ religious rights won’t be tolerated. While stories of outright religious discrimination are rare, they do take place in the Sunshine State. According to the Sun-Sentinel, for instance, a 12-year-old student in Broward County was told he couldn’t read the Bible during his free period in 2014.
Liberals complained about the law and even tried to create unrealistic situations to suggest that the law was unfair.
“There are teachers who do teach science but who don’t believe in evolution,” Volusia County high school teacher Brandon Haught told the Times. “This could embolden them to say, ‘The law is on my side,’” and start covering creationism or intelligent design in their classes.
But don’t you dare try and talk about grown men in dresses entering little girl’s bathrooms, because that topic is completely off limits according to them!
If children want to embrace their love for God, let them. It doesn’t harm anyone else and it allows them to express themselves.
