Parents of Student Furious about What This Middle School Teacher Told Their Son

BibleTwelve-year-old Loyal Grandstaff, like some of the other students in his Missouri middle school, enjoys reading during his free time. The only difference is Loyal’s choice of reading material. He prefers reading his Bible. Recently, however, when he took out his Bible during free period, his teacher came over and told he would have to read something else.

An article in Western Journalism says:

Grandstaff explained that he was reading quietly and never subjected anyone else to the contents of the Bible.

“I was just reading because I had free time,” he said. “A time to do what I wanted to do, so I just broke it out and read.”

The student explained his teacher nonetheless told him he was not allowed to open it in class.

The Marshall, Mo., middle school student explained that the Bible is his favorite book, noting that he chose to read it to himself during a free period last month.

“He doesn’t want me reading it in his class because he don’t believe it,” the student said of his teacher, “because he feels like he’s shut down.”

His parents are prepared to fight for the seventh grader’s right to read the book of his choice. Justin Grandstaff, the student’s father, said the teacher’s action not only “violated his freedom of religion but also his freedom of speech.”

The concerned parent went on to compare his son’s solitary activity to the behavior of many of the school’s other students.

“There’s kids walking around disrespecting their teachers,” he said, “kids walking around cussing and everything else; and they’re practically getting in no trouble at all.”

Bueker Middle School Principal Lance Tobin said Bibles are not banned on school grounds, but he does not yet have enough information to discuss the specific’s of this case.

    People need to wise up and stop sending their kids to public school.

    • R. Eilers

      Will you pay for my kids to attend private school? Ill switch tomorrow

      • Scott

        That’s an excuse that many people use to keep the kids in public school. My wife and I were far from rich. We didn’t make that much money at all. We homeschooled our kids up until the ninth grade and then put them in a christian private school. That’s school worked with us and didn’t charge us the full amount. They gave us a break and it only cost us 300 dollars a month to send both of them. Like the old saying goes, if there is a will there is a way.

        • R. Eilers

          Cool! Ill send you my address and when that 300 a month comes rolling in one of my kids gets private schooling!

          With God on your side you can accomplish more than you can imagine. When I was a single mom for a short time, I got more people, doc’s, atty’s, etc. to work with me and give me discounted rates since I was self pay and never on assistance. I still happens with me to this day. So when I get a blessing, we bless someone else. God greatly blesses His obedient children.

    • Bobtrhn

      Our taxes pay for these public schools. What gives them the right to do this. This BS started to get bad like this 6 years ago. Guess why? I would dare that school to tell my kid he can’t have or read this on his free time.
      This country is going to pot.

      • The Fox

        This nation has kicked God out of government, out of schools (now have school shootings), out of the public square and even many so called churches so this nation soon to be toast unless they repent and allow God back into this country? God Bless and Shalom Friend:

          Are giving up without a fight? I don’t think so.

            I believe the U.S. will be the country that sits on their hands and ask “What you go to take a spoil” when Russia and Iran attack Israel probably the nation in Ezk 39:6 that rest confidently when Russia goes up in flames. God Bless and Shalom Friend:

      Not sending students to public school is a good choice. However, some people simply cannot afford to send their children to a private school, church school, or even home school their children.

    • Jack Strohbach

      In the cities where the democrats are “in charge” the politicians are doing everything possible to limit the choice.

  • william russell

    Hey message to the parents, stand up and make the school accountable. This school and it leaders must be anti christian when a person in quite time takes the bible out and reads it to himself. You know what, if there where more christian values in the schools, they would not be the hell holes they have become. Parents this is what happens when liberal progressive democrats take over. It is their way or the high way. If i was a parent i would have this issue on the school board meeting and see what they do and those people are elected by you.

    • R. Eilers

      You are half right, it will also allow the next child to read his koran in school too

      • Glatik

        Reading the koran will be perfectly OK. (sarcasm).

      • Shane

        And you,sir, are half right. Freedom of Religion is for ALL religions. I’m not a follower of Islam, but those who are have the same right to read The Koran, just as Christians should have the right to read The Bible. This teacher is dead wrong, just because HE doesn’t believe it doesn’t give him the right to deny those who do.

        • R. Eilers

          And i agree with you, freedom of religion not freedom from reliion

          • Shane

            Correct. This is an attack on the freedom of all. That’s what the Left seems to confuse, you can’t attack Other religious beliefs without “shooting yourself in the foot”.

          • Shane

            I’m probably showing my age here, but Rush’s “The Trees” is a nice illustration of the delicate balance of freedoms. Really listen to the lyrics, I don’t think many people understand what the song is saying actually.

          • mustangsallyann

            Quit yer’ whinin’!!! I also had to admit I am old. LOL

          • Shane

            Being “Vintage” isn’t all bad, you can say or do ANYTHING in public and everyone just writes it off to Alhzheimers! Lol!

          • mustangsallyann

            And that even makes us more VALUABLE!! LOL

          • Shane

          • mustangsallyann

            Levity can be an awesome thing at times. That’s why God gave us a sense of humor. Most of us anyway. ;o)

          • James

            I have always loved that song, and the lyrics are just as you said, So many of the songs in that era had exceptional messages in them; but sadly; so also did many of them have garbage.

          • Teri Yzaguirre

            Yer only as old as you feel and I don’t know about you but I think Rush was ahead of their time anyhow and many other “vintage” groups. I’m very comfortable with my vintage lifestyle by the way. It’s up to all of us to share those vintage roots with the youngers of this country because “they” are also dumbing down our kids and programming them for socialism. “They” are not relaying the beginnings of this country’s history. “they’re” either leaving things out or are being left out or not being told altogether

          • Shane

            So true! IMO, Rush has always been underrated. Their lyrics were well thought out and deep, and Neil Peart was one of the best drummers EVER. And as for the state of the education system, it has been degraded severely. My youngest daughter (who is now 21) would tell us how disinterested most of her HS teachers were with their jobs. One would basically have an assignment on the board, and spend the class period on Facebook! This is what it’s come to!

            I watch Fox News too. What is the problem with that? Oh, I know what it is. It’s because all the anchors of the Fox News shows ask the questions we want answers to. They do not engage in softball questions. Al Roker is a good example, watched him at a parade Obama and Biden were walking in. Roker was on the sidelines yelling out “President Obama! President Obama!” over and over again until Obama waved in his direction. Then he did the same thing when Biden walked by. I swear if someone checked the ground they would find a puddle where Roker wet himself. Most of the anchors of the other stations act like they are going to hump Obama’s leg whenever he speaks.

          • R. Eilers

            Are you ok?

          • newhon63

            Yup. I am okay. Just react like that when someone dogs on Fox when other stations kiss Obama’s butt at every turn knowing he has been doing wrong but make it sound like he is doing right by the people.

          • R. Eilers

            You really should check out your news sources, Foxlies news tells the truth 18% of the time. Foxlies news watchers are less informed than any other news station. But then if thats what you want…..

          • newhon63

            Check them? Check them against who? Al Roker and his band of Obama worshipers? MSNBC? CBS? ABC? None of those stations grill anyone. They stick to a narrative that put Obama in a good light, they never cover any story that sheds light onto the cockroaches of the world for long. MSNBC gave Al Sharpton, of all people, his own show. Nothing like giving voice to one of the biggest race baiters of our time.

            Some people who were protesting something, forgot what it was about. A guy was chanting “Fox News lies, Fox News lies”. He was asked what they lied about. He did not have an answer, no example of it. So he started chanting the same thing again.

            So I submit to you. What have they lied about?

          • R. Eilers
          • newhon63

            Republican bashing. Nothing more. This organization has never called Obama out on his lies concerning ObamaCare that we all know to be true. But they put this out there. There is conflicting stories about Ebola, some doctors says there is no airborne risk and others saying there is. Some say the virus can stay live for hours on surfaces. Others say no. It has not just been Fox News. Some stations are completely silent about it. I can call all these people you point out left leaning and post ones that say the exact opposite and you will call them right wing. All anyone has to do is say Fox News and you will not even read the story, you will automatically discount them because it is Fox.

            Spare me posting the others. Every one of them so far bashes Republicans along with Fox News. This is because they are just as anti-conservative as Fox News is anti-liberal. Just because there are 5 of these organizations bashing Fox to Fox’s 1 organization bashing liberals, does not make them right or reliable. It just means that all 5 are parroting each other. None of them are proof that Fox lies. Only proves that they hate Fox.

          • bill

            if you know anyone who had a c or ku band satellite back before the nets took them offline you could watch all the networks live feeds from where the “news” was happening. not one network showed the true picture of what they were reporting on. the “news” was all edited to reflect whatever political or personal views the networks subscribed to. what was shown or reported varied hugely from what was on the live (unedited) feeds . the worst examples were from the big 3

            I am a Foxbot and proud of it. You were standing next to Roker when he left his puddle and added to it yourself. But you brought pom-poms with you to ra-ra when they walked by. Obama is a creampuff, always was, always will be. He lied to get into office and he has lied ever since. But you don’t care about any of that. Love is blind and deaf too.

            Nope. I am an Islamophobe. I know not all Muslims are bad. At least I hope not. I look at it like this. There are 1.4 billion Muslims worldwide. If only 10% of them are radical, that means there are 140 million idiots wishing to do harm to anyone who is not a follower of Islam. That is alot of people spread out across the globe. To have a leader who can not even bring himself to utter the words “Radical” and “Islam” in the same sentence is a problem.

          • mustangsallyann

            Just an FYI FACT. When they appointed a Muslim to the WH Intelligence Committee week before last, not one news agency reported it but AOL. We looked for 2 days and nothing. Not one news agency out there now is on the up and up. The Christian programs are showing more of the truth than anyone else out there right now. If you don’t witness it yourself, you can’t trust any of them to tell you.

          • R. Eilers

            Why is the faith or religion of a person in an intelligence committee newsworthy?

          • mustangsallyann

            Well, it seems that one female senator complained that O was padding Wash with Muslim’s and was chastised for her concern. It seems he’s funded terrorist org., as well as a few other’s that have been appointed. There’s more than 10 now and whether you want to face it or not, until they begin to speak out against terrorism, people are flat out scared. I’m 54 and until the last 2 yrs. never heard of anyone ever being beheaded here. Now it’s the new pastime. We all have a right to know who’s making the big decisions for our country. If that’s how you think, then why all the fuss about a potential Mormon or complaining about Rep Christian’s. And why the reason to hide it. Just a tad hypocritical, you think.

          From what I am given to understand Islam is fewer than Christians in America at the moment but because they have whining down to an art, it takes fewer of them complaining to be heard. This is because people are afraid of being called “Islamophobe”, so they give Muslims their way to shut them up. Then they move onto the next whine-fest. Christian become vocal but their pleas fall on deaf ears because no one is afraid of being called “Christianophobe”. This teacher needs to shut his face and just teach the damn class. Free time is given to the kids to do what they want to do. If it is reading a Bible, doing homework, picking their nose that is their business.

Basically they have succeeded in dumb-ing down America, in order, to dissolve any common ground that KEPT America from becoming a great nation and an intelligent compassionate singular organization of decent individuals who absolutely stand for justice, patriotism, and good moral standard laws. I really wanted suggest how to save America but those words would be so frivolous at this juncture because any such action would have a devastating and lengthy conclusion and would serve no purpose. I am tired of woulda’s, shoulda’s, coulda’s, as they always fall on deaf ears, as revealed in all the different opinions on this blog and many other blogs. Each battle has been strategically put in motion by the enemy and there have been millions of battles, such as these, that have brought us to our knees and it is quiet obvious now, that the NWO intends to invoke dictatorial power over it’s Americans and eventually at some point and time, depopulate, taking away everything you every had and everything you were going to have. When this happens the war will seem lost, BUT you have to remember that the Son of God is in control and He will win the final big battle in the end; Thus the WAR! Glory and Praise be to the Lamb, to the coming KING, The Lion of Judah! Jesus will show all the devils how He wanted this world to function, during His thousand year reign on earth. No one will ever get away with idol worship, with adultery, with porno, with lying, with murder, with rape, with stealing, with joining evil secret societies, with any cruel or any wicked thing, period. Lot’s of people will die, and the gateway to hell has been widened, to accommodate all the devils.

        If a child believes in Allah, he has the right to read his Koran in school during free time. However, he has not got the right to disrupt the class by bouncing his head off the floor when it comes time to pray. Nor does he have the right to preach Islam to others in school. This Bible reader was not doing it so the Koran reader should not be allowed to either but reading is not preaching. In the same vein, no chapels have ever been created in a public school for the Christian faith or any other, so too, no rooms for feet washing, halai food or segregation between boys and girls should take place outside of locker rooms and other common sense areas for the Islam faith.

        But getting back to this teacher, the teacher’s beliefs have no place in the classroom.

      It’s time for parents to start suing these idjiots. When my middle son was in Middle School he’d do all his homework during recess as he did sports afterward, as well as valued his time with his family more than his free time at school. They actually told him he could no longer do it so I called the school and asked what their problem was. He was always an honor role student. They told me it was important for him to use his free time to relax and I told them he obviously preferred that free time at home more and I wanted them to leave him alone. With all the failing student’s, I couldn’t believe how asinine they were. Being a stay at home mom has its advantages. They left him alone after that, knowing I’d have no problem filing against them in court. It’s time to scream loudly, newer mommy’s and daddy’s. ;o)

      • newhon63

        You are absolutely right. We need to take our schools back. When things like this occur, we need to point out to the administration and the teachers that we pay taxes to keep schools running and to teach our children the curriculum. Not to impose their personal beliefs upon our kids. And before any of them want to spew the “It’s my classroom” garbage, we use our money to build the schools and every room in it. Their onky job is to instruct students using accurate information. Not information that is politically correct or designed not to hurt anyone’s feelings even if it is true information. If this teacher is a non-believer, that is his business, but it gives him no right to restrict this students beliefs.

            Every last one of them !! There’s a man by the name of Dr. Ben Carson who’s going to run for President. Y’all need to check him out. He’s for limited Gov’t, free enterprise, none of this income redistribution, he hates”political correctness”, he’s pro God, pro life & he’s pro gun. Look for a little booklet called Run Ben Run. You can read all about him. He’s tired of the way this country has been divided and of all the gov’t dependency. What’s going to happen when “they” decide to pull the rug out from under us ? Those who’ve depended on the gov’t are going to be panicking badly. use your imagination from there.

            Dr. Carson is far better then many who will be after the job of president. However, I do not know how great Dr. Carson will be when Russia, China or even when Cuba starts tp push their weight around. We need someone who has a Backbone who will stand up to bad nations as well. I see Palin and being one of those people.

          • mustangsallyann

            While I don’t have anything personal against Palin, I think so much has happened with her that she’s hardly no chance of being elected. She offends way too many people. My fear is if the Rep’s through her out as our candidate, we’ll end up with another Dem again, probably Hillary.

          • John Keatts

            Mustangsallyann, Do you have anyone in mind that you would vote for in the GOP?

          • mustangsallyann

            I’m sorry, I don’t know how I missed this post. I’m not sure at this point, I’ve seen a few with some better values, morals and goals that intrigued me but I’m so burnt out with all the deceptions and games that it makes it hard for me to trust anyone. It’s hard not to be hypercritical. I don’t think Palin has a chance so if they put her out there, we might as well start celebrating another defeat right now. Another problem, you’ve got to try to second guess the rest of the population and you can’t figure out if they’re going to be ‘teched in the head’ from one day to the next. It’s like trying to figure out what a schizophrenic relative is going to do. I still have to do a lot more research but so far I’ve liked some of what I’ve heard from Carson although O could’ve killed that possibility, I was interested in Rand Paul for a bit but not so much now. It’s a pain because I don’t see anyone great at this point, maybe we’ll get someone new and better to throw in their hat. I know that didn’t help one darn bit. LOL It would be nice if they’d hold them accountable when they flubbed up, then you’d get a much better indication of who can be trusted and they wouldn’t be so darned corrupt.
            Again, I’m sorry I missed this and I hope you’re having a great day. God Bless and protect you and yours. Amen. Sallyann

          • newhon63

            We must understand something. The GOP is going to decide who to put up as their candidate. I am worried about what will go into their decision. Chris Christie is a guy who is like a bull in a china shop. For some things that is a positive trait for a President while in other settings it can be a negative. Sometimes you need tact and I do not think Christie has a tactful bone in his body. Mit Romney is thinking of or has decided to run again. He had his chance and failed because he did not call Obama out on his policies, foreign or domestic, he wanted to play nicey nice in the face of Obama’s Chicago thug politics, that just does not cut it. The GOP needs to field a solid candidate based on record rather than what they say to get elected. Look at the B.S. Obama spread around that ended up being wordsmithong that lead us one way when he meant something entirely different. When he was called out on some of it later, he called it “Evolving”, that is just another way of saying “I got in saying this and now that I have the steering wheel I am going to do what I want to do. With or without the support of Congress or the American people. You will like it or I will make you live with it.”

          • John Keatts

            On the last day of 2013, I left the GOP when I registered with the Constitution Party of Nevada. My reasoning was because Sen. Dean Heller Sided with Sen. Harry Reid on giving Amnesty to the Hispanic Adults who were brought here as kids by their parents. Add to that Rep. Joe Heck’s push to pass a bill that would cause the men and women who were about to retire from the military toi have to wait to draw their money until they started drawing Social Security Payments. And there was the reduction of COLA for men and women who were about to retire. Some of those soon to retire members of the military had already lost arms and legs. It just hit me wrong. Rightfully So.

          • newhon63

            Well. The hatred Obama has for America goes part and parcel with his disdain for our military. It would stand to reason that if a man hates a nation and is in position to do so, he would weaken it as much as possible. Hence his ridiculous policies about everything. Rolling out free college for 2 years, then want to tax the 529, the vehicle for investment for purposes of college that people have been using for years, to pay for another handout to his newly Amnestied, soon to be citizens, cover them with ObamaCare that is saddling those working with higher health care costs via higher premiums, giving them work permits with so many real citizens and legal immigrants looking for work, total disregard for working with Congress to conduct the people’s business, claiming a do nothing Congress for having to use Executive Orders to enact his own agenda when it had been Harry Reid’s crusty butt that has been the bottle-neck the whole time but Obama never minded that because he didn’t have to veto anything, Reid would do it for him so The Boy King never had to take responsibility for the lack of legislation being passed. Doing what he can to keep us energy dependant on a politically unstable Middle East, reducing our military so they are less capable of responding when and where they are needed. A good example is the A-10 Warthog, which has been extremely effective against ISIS forces on the ground with it’s Vulcan cannon and when properly armed able to blow armor to bits as well as being designed so that it is very difficult to shoot down is being reduced in the numbers we have ready to use because of our president buttwad’s sequestration. Instead of having an overall plan, he is happy to use drone strike after drone strike and think he is actually doing something. And let’s not forget how he disrespects our allies every chance he gets.

          • Cyril Price

            John Keatts, the last time Palin ran for office after quitting the governorship in midterm, she demonstrated how ignorant she was of world affairs. Is that a person you would like to be in charge of the free world? Clinton is a lawyer with Senatorial experience and four years as Secretary of State. Palin was a mayor of a small town in Alaska, and she failed as a governor. But you would rather see her as President of The United States. Please tell us exactly what Palin would do to stand up to bad nations. Don’t tell us she’d start another war. We’ve had enough of that from John Bomb, Bomb Iran McClain.

          • mustangsallyann

            I just saw a program focused on Carson and was very impressed. I do intend to find more info on him as I think it’s worth the time after seeing last night’s show. My biggest concern is O’s caused so much damage, and we’ve enough bigot’s in this country, that he’ll be passed right on by just because he’s black. But I definitely liked what I’ve seen so far.

          • John Keatts

            Mustangsallyann, I do not have a hang up when it comes to color. But it is like this when it comes to People of Faith. It is like the Christians who are being killed over in the Middle East. When will they stand up and defend themselves. Will Dr. Carson have the will to fight, to send in troops and get out of their way and give them fighting room, allowing them to do their job of Defending The Nation known as The United States?

          • mustangsallyann

            Wow, I think that’s such an awesome question and I’m so glad you asked it. Here’s my interpretation and take on it. God puts all of us here for different jobs, I’m a nurturer and protector, had I not wanted a family of my own so much, I’ve no doubt my life would’ve been spent doing Missionary work and I would’ve accepted the potential risk of the job. Not having the ability to do so, I filled that need with lots of charity work, working with local kids and the courts. I don’t think once the hostages are captured with the present situation, have got much chance to fight or defend themselves afterward. They’ve probably got weapons pointed at them 24/7 and every minute of the day. I honestly believe some have tried to fight but it’s something the terrorists would ever admit to us anyway, it would take a bit of their credibility away as they want everyone to think their so wacked in the head everyone is constantly peeing their pants. Therefore, the Christian’s only possibility of survival with them at that point is to renounce their faith. There’s one thing a true child of God will not do and that’s to renounce their faith. I’d give my life without a second thought before ever even thinking about it, as would the rest of His children.

            Now Carson, the one thing I need you to know first is I’m explaining this giving him every bit of the benefit of the doubt that his motives are pure. If not, we’ll know in good time by his future actions. That being said, I’m sure he also has some similar traits of mine, a nurturer and protector, as well as many more leadership skills that I have no interest in, if he didn’t he’d have no desire to be Pres. So his desire is to do a job protecting our country from home. If he’s a true child of God, he’ll take that job very seriously and yes, will use weapons if necessary. The only worry would be is if somehow he was captured, put in the same positions of the hostages and ordered to renounce his faith. The likelihood of that is very, very slim if Secret Service does their job properly. If God has called him to this path, God knows there’ll be some not so pretty decisions he’ll have to make but he’ll make the right one’s as God will guide him through it and protect him for that obedience.

            While Bush wasn’t my favorite person in the world, he was a Christian man as far as I could tell and did what he needed to do once faced with it. I don’t think the Iraq invasion was started for the right reasons but it should’ve been done decades before just because of the treatment of the citizen’s that were being abused so badly and so many killed, but I do believe as time went on, his motives for the wars were started with what he saw as a pure heart and motive. Only God can decide if that’s true as He’s the only one who truly knows his heart, but don’t forget, for the sake of comparison, I’m still giving him the benefit of the doubt. Same as Reagan, another Christian. I still remember how fast those hostages were released when he was about to take office. They knew Reagan wasn’t going to play around like Carter had done, he’d go to war to retrieve them his second day in office if necessary.

            I hope that puts your mind a bit more at ease. God knows satan is not an easy one to fight. But yes, He does send many here to defend His children, even if it takes something a bit harsh to really get their attention. Beforehand, He gives every sinner a chance to redeem themselves, whether they see it or not.
            Have a great day. God Bless and protect you and yours. Sallyann

          • John Keatts

            Mustangsallyann.
            The thing to do is not get captured in the first place and if you are threatened with death, fight hard and do your best to take as many as you can with you. If you feel that you are likely to die anyway, why be afraid of death. Make your peace with God and let it all go. And for all that you did for others I say God Bless You Even More Then He Likely Already Has.

          • mustangsallyann

            Good Morning John. I agree with you and as I said, I believe they probably have fought back but terrorists aren’t going to tell us the truth about that. Remember though, I was just focusing on your questions about Christian’s and Carter and if I thought he’d be willing to do what’s necessary if elected, and whether our faith would stop us from defending our country, a hypothetical. You’re right in that it’s certainly the best thing to not to get caught in the first place but if you do, God does not fault us for protecting ourselves and those weaker, as long as it’s done with a pure heart and motive. Sometimes God does allow capture just because it will bring Him honor in some way and then that’s not within our control at all. But as far as I’m concerned when that happens, the person captured usually knows God has allowed it for a reason and so are happy to be able to honor Him, even if means losing their life. When God allows something like this to happen to His children, it’s to bring them even closer to Him and because His mission for them is very important. It’s no different than my being allowed to get cancer. I already see and know why it happened, can makes multiple lists on how it’s honored our Father and would do it all over again even knowing I’d have the same outcome. Knowing my illness has brought some back to God that other’s thought were hopeless cases are the best reason I could ever think of to do it all again. Jesus suffered for us in a way no other man will probably ever know so if He could be so strong, I can deal with this illness which is so much easier than the life Jesus was fated to have. Since my first contact with one of God’s messengers was when I was 5, I’ve known a lot of my purpose here from that time. I have to be honest and say I fought with God about it plenty over the years, didn’t always see why it had to be me in that place but as I’ve aged I’ve seen why it was all necessary and no longer get angry with Him, instead I now just hold on to Him tightly as each part arises and He keeps me strong throughout it. For that, God has greatly blessed me and my family, and the incredible things He’s provided, like the best medical treatment in the world, with no ins, no assistance from the government whatsoever, Ocare or private Ins, could’ve only been a miracle provided through God.

            When I was first dx’d and we’d lost our ins due to Ocare, we had no clue how I’d get treatment, I didn’t qualify for any assistance, I couldn’t get private ins due to the still present pre-existing clause and we were beside ourselves. I knew God would fix it and sure enough He did, I knew in less than a week exactly who’d treat me and I’m almost embarrassed to say how little has come from our pocket’s, I wish everyone could be blessed with the same. We do have private insurance again and while we’ll use it for other things, we won’t change my treatment to them as they can’t provide me the same stellar care I’m now receiving. So we’re just going to let them charge our private ins. co. for my care and I’m staying right where I’ve been throughout this. Not only that but we’d recently moved to Fla. at the time and I knew we had to get back to our children but didn’t know how we’d be able to afford it with everything else going on. In less than 24 hours God provided us all the finances we needed to move back home pronto. I even broke my leg while being treated for cancer and the care I got through the private ins that I was provided was shoddy at best. There was 5 separate injuries, one on top of each other and I finally stopped going to the doc because they were useless so I gave it to God instead. It was God who finally healed my leg so I could function again. Of course, Orthopedics having a bit of ego, were very upset when I removed that cast and gave God the credit for my healing but when they had no other explanation, they had no choice but to put this into my medical records as well, just like the vision God gave me of the cancers in the first place. If you haven’t seen it in any of my other posts, that was how I knew I had cancer and where it was. They thought I was wrong but I insisted they write the referral and my primary care doc, which was also a Christian, felt terrible when it was found exactly where I told them it would be. I’m certain he just didn’t want to think I was so sick, he was such a loving and devoted doc to his patient’s. But that too, is one more thing in my medical records that I’ve given all credit to God and it’s intrigued more than a few of my doc’s involved with my care. More doc’s are recognizing there’s something much bigger than us controlling things, many now flat out admitting it’s God. The funniest thing now is I can walk into their office, say I’ve had a vision or dream and even if they didn’t suspect what I tell them, they’ll run any test available to see if it’s true no matter what the cost. I’d say that brings honor to God in a huge way, and also opens the door for others that get visions as I do and opens the mind’s of the doc’s treating them. Everyone involved gets a win/win, doc’s are learning God is beside them to help them provide the best treatments for their patient’s care to assist in actually curing them, or at least prolonging their lives with a much better quality of life until God brings them home.
            So we’re on the same page with potential harm from terrorists, don’t get caught and if you do, protect as many as you can, take as many bad guy’s with you as possible but be certain when you take another’s life that your actions are pure of heart and motive. In other words, do it to honor God and for no other reason. Just look at the missionary’s that gave their lives because they’d not renounce their faith and then the supposedly best of the best of military, the soldier who renounced his faith, became Muslim and was still executed. I leave judgments to God but can’t imagine what he’ll face when having to meet our Lord. I’m paraphrasing, can look up the actual Scripture if you’d like but the gist of it is this. The man who’ll save his own life by turning from God will surely die, the man who’ll give his life in the name of our Father, shall live for an eternity.

            I hope you have a great day, I know we’ll chat again soon. I’ve a busy day to get started on so guess if I don’t get started, I’ll never get all done. We have surgery #13 scheduled for Feb 6, next Friday, so I’ll be counting on all of the prayers of my beautiful brother’s and sister’s I’ve met here. With God at my side and those all over the world that pray for me regularly, I should be up and running marathons in no time. Thank you so much for your wonderful kind words, some of you here make my heart swell more than you know, you’ve been another blessing from God to me. Who’d have ever thought anyone could say that about those you meet on a political sight where most are normally fighting amongst one another. LOL God works in mysterious ways, for all of us.

            God Bless and protect you and yours always. Amen. Sallyann

            Hey, no worries, I get a bit long winded and am also guilty of going off on a tangent more times than not. The more it brings out things for other’s to see that only honor God, the better our communications are understood by those who may have questions and even bring some that much closer to God. What better reason for us to go off our initial post than to let others see He does exist. I sure can’t think of any other more important goal for our lives. :o) So you get carried away as much as you like, as I said your initial question was awesome and I was so glad you asked it. I’ve no doubt it’s something that many others have had their minds on and seeing another side, may find more peace in knowing a Christian leader will do what they were called to do by God. It was a beautiful thing for you to inquire about. Well, I’m off to get ready for another day at the hosp. of poking and prodding. When all this started I’d cry at the sight of a needle, God gave me the strength to get through them so I no longer fear them like I used to. Good thing as they’ve stuck me enough I could be used a colander now. LOL Have an awesome day and I hope you’re also gearing up for a wonderful weekend.

            Exactly. Obama was so hell bent on being able to say he ended the wars, he did not do it to safegard the gains we made and to allow the new Democratic government a chance to get up and running. He wanted to armchair quarterback and he has no military background at all but refused to listen to his generals either. He does not listen to anyone. He is a community organizer and that is the extent of his skill set outside of lying through his teeth in order to misdirect. Now he does not have to face re-election, he can do all the damage he wants, take his family to California at the end of his term, move them into the multi-million dollar mansion and watch the world burn as the result of his stupidity. Did past presidents do things? Sure, without a doubt. But Obama said he was going to fix things and it was just another distraction.

            I, for one, will surely check out Dr Ben Carson. He may have never been involved in politics before, but hell, we put a community organizer in the oval office that sure as hell was not qualified. All he has accomplished in the years he has been in office, is to let the Islamist extremists get a foothold in America and come back in Iraq and Afghanistan, after we had run their butts into the ground. He also has made America weaker by dismissing so many of our military and cutting it down to the fewest members since before WWII.

      Please, people, take the time to learn about the real purpose of compulsory public schooling. It is not now, nor has it EVER been about educating anyone; NEVER! It’s not the republicans or the democrats. They both now have the same intent. Compulsory schooling, now government schooling, ALWAYS had only one purpose – to make sure that ONLY the children of the RULING CLASS are educated. Unless you ARE part of the ruling class, your children are in school for the expressed purpose of keeping them ignorant; and as nearly illiterate as possible. I was a high school teacher. It should be obvious to all in sight that the more we spend for schools the worse the result is. The schools are NOT FAILING! That is what is INTENDED to happen. School teachers and administrators, especially the latter, do not want children reading ANYTHING but the propaganda they feed to them.

      Yes, absolutely we must stand up for our religious freedom as Christians. Before those who stand for freedom from religion, or any other anti-Christ group takes over. I for one stand with you my brothers & sisters in the Lord. Someone said, & I forget exactly how this was put but it goes something like this…. we remained silent when the Jews were being anhilated by the Nazi regime “they” weren’t coming after the Christian so we said nothing, then we did nothing when the people were being slaughtered during Idi Ameen’s reign because “they” weren’t coming for us. And because we said nothing “they” came for us next. I realize I am saying this incorrectly regarding the saying itself but, I think you get the general idea of what happens when we don’t stand up for others. We’re next. I am from Texas and we have an organization called the Christian Law Offices they handle these very issues and tell you wether or not, you can legally continue doing these types of things in public places, such as reading a bible in school during free time. I don’t know if you have a group of this nature But, if not you could probably contact this group and at least ask them for their advice on the subject( I believe it is free) go to ChristianLawOffices.org God bless.

    • Teri Yzaguirre

      You are exactly right.

    • Cyril Price

      William, you can’t blame Liberals when this type of thing occurs all over the country, yes, even in states where regressive Conservatives are in charge. You probably are aware that Christians can do some stupid things, too, right? And they have been doing them before Liberals took over, long before. Say about the time the country was born. You know, when five of the first six presidents owned slaves. They were Christians, all five of them, and they were not Liberals.

  • Daniel from TN

    This type of situation has already been to the US Supreme Court, several times. During free time a student can read whatever he or she wishes, as long as it is not pornographic and there is no attempt to deliberately distract other students.
    Principal Tobin made the correct response. Until he HAS all the facts he should not comment on the matter. One of the needed facts may be knowledge of SCOTUS cases on matters like this one.

  • tucson bones

    The teacher should be reprimanded or fired. The boy was not being rowdy, disruptive in class. He was being quite, and it was his free time. Is it okay now for government to tell us what we can and can not read? He wasn’t reading pornography was he.

    • Bobtrhn

      If he was reading porn the teacher would have probably sat and read it with him.

      “He doesn’t want me reading it in his class because he don’t believe it,” the student said of his teacher – You’ve got the wrong gender of the teacher in question as by re-reading the article to make sure I was correct in my reading the first time through as his teacher was “Male”.

    It is almost impossible to affect the politicians in Washington, ( not that we stop trying to) but, I do believe we can certainly affect things like this in our local schools.

I am tired of all other religions getting whatever they want, but Christians are told we can’t do this or that or whatever. It is not right!

    The bible is not allowed during the fundamental transformation of America. You have to get a lawyer and spend thousands of dollars and then hope some far left liberal appointed judge will grant you permission to practice your faith. It’s not the America we fought for people, the liberals, atheists and the democrat party lemmings will tell you what to believe, how to live, what kind of health care you need and any other fundamental transformation rule that we “stupid” Americans need to follow. We have handed our country over to idiots.

    • mustangsallyann

      You’d be surprised at how many atty’s will take these cases pro bono. If they win, it gives them a nationwide rep and that in itself is worth representing a case like this for free. I wouldn’t give up until I found one. It won’t be as hard as you think.

      • Robert Pekarik

        I hear you. Do you see how our nation has changed radically over the past 40 years? The transformers must complete the removal of God from America and then let chaos fill in the vacuum. They will run to the rescue with government rules and regulations to take the place of common sense and following the ten commandments. All the while we the people will sit by and slowly but surely give up everything that has made this nation great and let the radical minorities rule the day. Abortion, gay marriage forced down our throats, revisionist history taught in our schools, ignorance of who is running the show in Washington and believing everything that comes out of the DC, New York and California media propaganda machines. We are reaping what we’ve sown.

        • mustangsallyann

          Not all deserve this. I was very involved when my boy’s were in school and there were times I know the schools wished I’d simply disappear. But my son’s were treated fairly because of it. While my grandchildren aren’t in school yet, my son’s will do exactly the same and are already preparing. But it takes a bunch more than just one set of parents to make them behave like they’ve got some good sense. Until then, it’ll keep going downhill.

          • Robert Pekarik

            We sent our children to a parochial school. Our oldest 2 went 12 years and our youngest went for 8 years. We never worried about what they were being taught and discipline and respect were the norm. They started and ended each day with prayer and we parents supported the teachers and took their advice when told what would help our children succeed. Public education has now become an arm of the government with money being dumped into the schools and programs set up to teach them everything the government wants them to believe. Now we have our youth who have absolutely no clue about our government, how it works, who’s in charge and what is happening now with this current administration who knows all about the ignorance of the low information voter and capitalizes on it by using social media to put out the false narrative and the big lie. They have the perfect vehicle to promote it, our speechmaker-in-chief who’s only accomplishment has been to sell the far left propaganda to the naive voters who have swallowed it hook, line and sinker.

  • Jack Strohbach

    Give the kid a Koran and see the school rolling out the red carpet. The liberal atheist dirtbags need to be reprimanded with serious consequences, including terminations!

    The teacher is wrong and should be held accountable for his ignorance. The parents need to fight for their sons’ right to read what he chooses during his free time, One wonders if this teacher would have been so quick to shut this kid down if he were reading trash.

    The teacher may well be misconstruing the rules/regulations about mixing state and religion. The newer breed of teacher has been taught mainly by left-wing liberals and is unable to think for him/her self.

    “There’s kids walking around disrespecting their teachers,” he said, “kids walking around cussing and everything else; and they’re practically getting in no trouble at all.”

    A little Bible reading would solve most of those problems with the kids. Kids do a lot worse than those things in schools. Parents blame the schools and the schools blame the parents and the truth is, nobody wants to spend time, money or effort turning kids into decent Americans.

    “Education is useless without the Bible. The Bible was America’s basic text book in all fields. God’s Word, contained in the Bible, has furnished all necessary rules to direct our conduct.” – Noah Webster

    “The Bible is the rock on which our Republic rests.” – Andrew Jackson

    “In regards to this great Book [the Bible], I have but to say it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this Book. But for it we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are found portrayed in it”. – Abraham Lincoln –

    “The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country.” – Calvin Coolidge

    “Of the many influences that have shaped the United States into a distinctive nation and people, none may be said to be more fundamental and enduring than the Bible.” – Ronald Reagan

    Deep religious beliefs stemming from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible inspired many of the early settlers of our country, providing them with the strength, character, convictions, and faith necessary to withstand great hardship and danger in this new and rugged land. These shared beliefs helped forge a sense of common purpose among the widely dispersed colonies — a sense of community which laid the foundation for the spirit of nationhood that was to develop in later decades. – Ronald Reagan

    The Bible and its teachings helped form the basis for the Founding Fathers’ abiding belief in the inalienable rights of the individual, rights which they found implicit in the Bible’s teachings of the inherent worth and dignity of each individual. This same sense of man patterned the convictions of those who framed the English system of law inherited by our own Nation, as well as the ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. – Ronald Reagan

    “The practice of morality being necessary for the well being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral principles of Jesus and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses.” – Thomas Jefferson

    So, how did we get to a place in America where our own history is politically incorrect and cannot be taught in our public schools? The answer is simple: The communist removed it from the Democrats and the Democrats, with the aid of the ACLU (American Communist Lawyers Union) have worked hard to remove it from everyone else. …. well… pretty much… can’t blame it all on the Democrats…… just on their collective “victim” constituencies. The Democrat Party just happens to be the political home of everything, everyone and every evil that seeks to undermine our country. Don’t believe it? Take a good look at who is in the White House, how he got there, what he’s been doing and you can see the purposes of the whole Democrat party.

  • gpicha

    F the teacher, I’d punch the ass out. Sue me. I’m already sueing the teacher, the school & the district. Lets start at 2.5 million. My kid can’t read the bible, then you can’t breath.

  • Ira Radnick

    One thing I taught my kids was they had a responsibility to challenge presumed authority, when an adult (including teachers) told them to do something that was not fair or not right. One day a teacher told my 12 year old son to pick up some trash at a nearby table (trash was not his) while he was eating lunch (by himself, not bothering anybody). My son objected to the unfair treatment (the teacher had demanded he do that, did not ask if he would), and threatened to send him to see the principal if he did not comply. So, when he was done with his lunch my son opted to not knuckle under the illicit demand, and went to his next class timely. While in said class there was an announcement over the PA advising my son to report to the principal’s office, which he did. He was told by the principal, with the offending teacher present, that he was to comply with any command made by a teacher. He was then told he had a demerit on his record as a result of the refusal to comply.

    That evening my son told me what happened, and I told him he needed to make an appointment to see the principal and advise that he did nothing wrong, the teacher was not acting within his authority to demand that he clean up after anyone else, that they have a paid janitorial staff to perform such work when other students were acting like pigs, and if he felt otherwise his father (me) was willing to push the issue with the board of eduction, and court if needed, to assert his rights in the face of an illicit demand by an alleged authority figure. The principal told my son it would have been nice if he complied, agreed to remove the demerit and let the matter go. My son told him that had the teacher asked politely for his help, as opposed to being immediately overtly demanding, he would have likely complied. But his father always told him to not comply with unfair or illicit demands by anyone who pressed for compliance, that it was a matter of his responsibility in a free society.

    I was very proud of my son for standing his ground. Has a teacher ever told my son that he was not to read a book of any kind on his own time, I would pushed the matter as far s I could in our legal system, and demand an apology form the arrogant teacher. Nobody has the right to restrict any citizen from reading the bible, any other religious material, much less any material that is other wise not illegal (child porn for instance) in this great nation of ours. This teacher overstepped his/her bounds – and ought to be brought to task for the offense.

          • Richard Neva

            Jews hate Christians, I grew up with them and got the shit kicked out of me by those bastards! All because I went to the Catholic church, is that good enough for you?

          • mustangsallyann

            I apologize for making a statement and not understanding your reasons behind it. I’m sure that was a terrible thing to go through and many people have a hard time getting past those school years, children can be so cruel. I assume you’re a Christian so would just like to respectfully interject something here, just a thought you may be interested in.
            It’s no secret many Jewish do hate Catholic’s, as well as Christian’s as we know Jesus is real and we don’t come to the Father any way other than through His son Jesus Christ. I’m sure many have their own concerns with eternity as they don’t acknowledge His son. I’m also pretty certain it’s because it’s too hard for them to face the things they did to Him while on this earth. But that has to do with pride and ego, something God has made clear they’d answer for in the right time. All religion’s have those that’ll be punished just because they followed their own agenda’s, rather than God’s word. I’m Baptist but know we too have our hypocrites but that doesn’t make all of us bad. Sadly, too many feed off the negative so never see the good around them. And as we live in a world now ruled by satan, his minion’s make sure we see very little good happening, in the media and through his evil children with the biggest mouths. There’s 2 things I pray you’ll think on that might give you the ability to move past those earlier memories.
            First, God made it clear that if we want forgiveness, we must learn to forgive ourselves. Not all Jewish people are bad, just as not all Christian’s are bad either. God will punish those who hurt you, give it to Him so you might find peace and remember lumping everyone into the same category allows you to be just as unfair as those that harmed you years ago. Secondly, and I learned this from personal experience, when you harbor those feelings forever, you allow those who hurt you way back then to continue to have control of you. Just because you forgive doesn’t mean you have to become their victim again, it means they no longer control whether you find inner peace or not. I’m a pretty stubborn soul when it comes to some things and the one thing I know, I’ll never allow someone who’s harmed me to continue to do so, I refuse to allow them that much control of the rest of my life. Once you can forgive, even if it means you just stay away from that which is evil, you now have every bit of control of your own life. If it affected you so deeply, I’ve no doubt you also love deeply and have a kindness in your heart many people lack today. Use that situation to honor our Father and He will greatly bless you for it, something else I’ve learned by personal experience. In fact, when I forgive, God makes certain those with that mind set don’t even approach me at all. Now how’s that for our greatest protector, our own personal body guard. :o) I only pray for you to find total peace, God does protect us when we’re obedient and take the higher road.
            I hope you have a wonderful day. God Bless and protect you and yours. Amen. Sallyann

    and just a thought ,maybe everyone in range of Marshall ,Mo. should go there and find out WTF is going on.

  • S. Wicks Jr

    But if the child opened the quran the teacher probably wouldn’t complain. Free time and he chooses the Bible. Let him alone. Would they prefer some smut magazine?

  • tom2

    Again and again, American children and their parents are hammered with the public school system’s obsessive compulsive disdain for Christianity and the Holy Bible. It’s a clear illustration of our desperate need for school choice — not the teachers’ idea of choice and certainly not the union’s idea. What’s needed is a robust free market filled with all kinds of accredited schools, able to deliver general subjects as well as all kinds of specialties, including athletics and the arts. I believe school taxes should be returned to parents in the form of state notes that are spendable in any accredited school by parents according to their choice. Every student would receive a note worth the same amount regardless of school taxes paid. Such a system would remove the tyranny, drugs, crime, bullying and bias because no business would survive if it tolerated such behavior. It would concentrate the drug users & pushers, illegal aliens and other scofflaws into public schools that wouldn’t need to compete. Such a system would neuter America’s largest union whose primary function is to take money from school employees and give it to democrat candidates. And employees of these schools would be more respectful of those who pay the bills.

    Most importantly, a free enterprise system eliminates indoctrination of students to unwelcome political agendas. But if you don’t like this alternative, you’re stuck with the costly current mandatory one-size-fits-all system. Currently, it feeds the masses at food courts that would make any commercial mall proud — with really bad food that the kids hate. It transports everyone to everywhere — on 300,000 buses — that’s $30 billion! It funds exotic musical instruments used only by a handful of kids who often already have plenty of private money. It provides expert and very expensive facilities and training for the professional sports industry that later employs only an infinitesimally small percentage of students who aren’t required to graduate. Expelled students have nothing to lose because the cost is assessed whether they graduate or ever return. The primary problem with our current system is it faces no competition. It’s a monopoly in a nation where monopoly is considered a criminal enterprise for everyone else. In America, students are forced to attend at the point of a gun but are not protected with like force. And parents are forced to pay or lose their homes. Additionally individuals and businesses are required by the state to pay forever, long after their kids are grown and even if they had no children. Proposed is an escape from the propaganda mills we call public schools and the extracurricular funding that everyone knows is brazen communism.

  • 2poorgrandchildrencom2

    Hey, parents, demand vouchers. I know that freedom is un-American, but we really need to try it. School vouchers can’t be worse than what we have–a monopoly run by government.

    • R. Eilers

      Sooo…every kid gets a voucher and every kid gets to go to private school and govt pays the bill right? Let me guess youre against 2 years free community college though?

      • independent thinker

        That voucher comes from LOCAL taxes already paid which are for the schools for the most part. The free 2 year college idea will require either massive tax increases or massive increases in the national debt to pay for it.

      • 2poorgrandchildrencom2

        Not exactly. Every kid gets a voucher and the taxpayers pay the bill. Every kid then decides which school he wants to attend if they will admit him. He is free to choose a socialist (government owned) school if the new competition should force it to improve sufficiently for that option to be worth considering. This system worked well after World War II with the GI Bill. Community college (remedial high school) is another issue for another thread.

  • BJM2

    I wish all of you would just find a way to read all the comments made with a truly open mind. EVERYONE’s comments about what is happening and why is completely based on their own biases. Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, white or black, rich or poor, you truly need to think about the kind of world you want to live in and start making decisions at the poll that work toward those goals. ALL Americans must be able to feel they are truly free in their country. The country I would like is the one where we care about everyone, and respect everyone. Just because I follow the Bible does not mean you can’t follow the Koran. Just because I am an atheist does not mean you can’t believe in God. If our country can start acting like one big “family” we might actually have a chance of fixing our problems. If your child was in need, would you tell that child to take a flying leap? NO – you would try to help in any way you can. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!!!!”

Religion in schools really ? Because christians believe they should be able to read bible in school that is religion in schools ? What about creationism shouldn’t both sides be taught in school why only the theory of evolution? You are free to believe humanity evolved from rocks ( Big Bang theory) if you want to believe life was just an accident that is your choice I happen to believe in creationism because I look at the world around me and see all the intricacies of nature and life and come to conclusion that life is not an accident.

  • snowyriver

    The teacher and this school have their heads where the sun never shines.

  • James D

    I would be willing to bet that if the kid took out a koran and started to read it the teacher would have peed himself and never said a word.

  • Joan Freda

    Wonder what the ‘teacher’ would have said had the book been the Koran instead of the Bible??

  • myfordtruck

    Thats the reason The People Of This Nation need to take back control of our schools and government

  • blackwingA520

    I’d bet if a student was reading the KORAN they would probably congratulate him/her. This is BS! The world is all backwards because of these f**king LEFTIST commies! They do It for power and control . We have to get rid of these scum.

    • R. Eilers

      So it was fucking leftist commies that wrote our constitution? Remember the separation of church and state?

      • mustangsallyann

        It was not and does not apply to students, it was to keep the Church and Religious leader’s from indoctrinating our children with their own personal choices. Students are and always have been exempt as it’s a crucial part of them learning free speech. Read the Constitution. You are so wrong on this one. Good grief!!!

        • R. Eilers

          Really? So my child can go establish a religion in school? Where in the 1st amendment does it say that? I cant find it

          • mustangsallyann

            They sure can but that doesn’t mean they can be disruptive to the educational process. Have you ever heard of a gang, or gay clubs which seem so popular now. Please, don’t waste my time with ignorance. I’m pretty sure you’re smarter than that, or I hope so anyway. You still haven’t read the Constitution.

          • R. Eilers

            Ive read the constitution a hundred times, still havent found where children can establish religions on state property. Where was that again or just making this up as you go along?

          • mustangsallyann

            First, I never said the Const. addresses anyone starting a religion, I said separation of Church and state does NOT apply to students. Then you ask another separate question, can my kid start a religion in school. Well anyone can as long as they meet state and federal requirements. Ever hear of Jim Jones, how about the Mormon founder. You’ve merged 2 questions into 1 and I guess I gave you more credit than you deserved. You either like manipulative games, or you really aren’t that smart. I didn’t deal with my children playing dumb and I don’t have anymore time to address a grown man’s same behavior. Get a grip.

          • R. Eilers

            So jim jones and joseph smith established religions while children in state run schools? Youve lost it now

          • jad

            How is reading a bible establishing religion.

          • R. Eilers

            Its not, if a child wants to read the bible, fine. If a child wants to read the koran, fine

          • jad

            Then what is point of previous post from you?

          • conservative since 1962

            Reading a “religious” book during free time IS NOT establishing “a religion in school”, but denying a child the right to read a book during “free time” because it is “religious” is in violation of “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,”
            BTW In the many times I have read the Constitution of the United States I have never found the phrase “separation of Church and State” where do you find that?

          • R. Eilers

            By the way im on the student’s side, the teacher was wrong is thats all there was to the story

          • jad

            Well try reading the story instead of just posting nonsense.

          • R. Eilers

            Try growing up instead of being a troll

          • jad

            You think you have posted anything showing maturity?

          • R. Eilers

            Still trolling huh?

          • jad

            Who is establishing a religion in school?

      • mustangsallyann

        You just proved exactly why who’s appointed into office IS newsworthy. How many people do we need in office that don’t even know their proper job is, and who or what is supposed to be protected. Thank you so much for your help.

        • R. Eilers

          Whats that got to do with what religion a person is?

          • mustangsallyann

            At this point in time, Muslim’s run on only 2 gears. They’re either out trying to kill anyone they can or they’re too afraid to stand up for their belief’s. That makes them a danger to everyone else they’re near as none can be trusted at this point. I’m not saying it’s right, I’m saying it’s reality. And no one should be in Wash right now that given any terrorist org. one cent.

          • R. Eilers

            BOO! Theres a muslim behind you lmao

      • willie

        from the comments read above there is proof why abortion should be legal, you would make a good poster for pro abortion
        it is also that the likes of you can reproduce, it should not be allowed, but that would go aginst what this nation is and was all about you are part of the problem

  • Mike

    If I were that boy’s father I’d tell him to defy that teacher. You can do that respectfully and still get your point across. If the teacher took any further action, we would have a meeting with my attorney present.

  • Freedome-Lover

    How stupid is this!!! That teacher needs to be re-educated. Heck – he should’ve congratulated himself that the kid didn’t pull out a comic book or Playboy to read in his spare time.

  • blackwingA520

    The kid was just sitting there quietly reading the book to HIMSELF. He wasn’t trying to push his views on someone else, and you have a problem with that why?

  • ABBAsFernando

    VILE LIBERAL SCUM are just that VILE.

    A prophet of God, Isaiah was shown this by God over 2,500 years ago;

    Isaiah 32:5-8King James Version (KJV)

    5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

    6 For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

    7 The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to
    destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

    8 But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

    King James Version (KJV) by Public Domain

    The Churl is a miser that fits the profile of today’s banker to a “T”. This scripture speaks to our time today. Shortly before Jesus Christ and our God return in all of their Glory. All people the world over will see this at the same time. Do not believe those who say Jesus Christ is here or there. When He returns all will know it. Muslim barbarians are the EVIL doers spoken of in the Holy Bible. NEVER surrender to them or deny Jesus Christ. If you do your SOUL will be lost. If you give your life for Jesus Christ you will find eternal life. Surrender to Muslim SCUM is DEATH.

  • Mys77

    There really needs to be some type of screening in college before anyone is accepted into any education curriculum. Not everyone should be allowed to be a teacher. This idiot is pretty abusive, and hateful to do this.

  • silvernotes

    …hold thier feet to the fire!

  • bigbillofwyandotte

    He should go ahead and read the Bible again in that class, and when told to put it away, he should do so and pull out a copy of Karl Marx’s
    writings. I suspect that so-called teacher would pat him on the head and call him a good boy. In court, he can then testify as to what happened. It would be interesting.

  • Truthteller

    He’d be better off reading a math or science book.

    • Shane

      Maybe true. But the point is, he was deprived of reading what he WANTED to, a religious writing, and therein lies the problem. You CAN’T pick and choose; RELIGIOUS FREEDOM for ALL, whether you agree with it or not.

  • Art Hock

    The liberal liars have taken over the education in this country. Put an end to tenure and eliminate the Marxist teachers union. If a teacher doesn’t do his or her job they should be fired just like any other occupation. A teacher has no right to interfere with a student’s beliefs if it doesn’t cause a disruption. This school needs a complete housecleaning from the top to the bottom and I hope the parents clean their clock.

  • Gordon

    Wouldn’t be an issue if he was a Muslim reading the Quaran or saying his prayers.

  • Patriot47

    This shows what is in charge of the edumacational system.

  • John Keatts

    There are people on this planet who could not tell you what it feels like to be punched in the nose simply beause they never felt someone hitting them there. This teacher is as bad. He does not want this student to feel the good that he gets from what he reads in the Bible. The Student is right while the teacher is far from being in the right.

  • mickey

    you seem to be confused and sending a hypocritical and mixed message. You talk about reading the bible in school and have these gross sexually explicit pics alongside.

  • Oingo Boingo

    Take the teacher into the schoolyard for flogging.
    Start a collection so the Principal can afford to buy a spine.

  • Laurence Almand

    The US Constitution states plainly that you cannot prohibit religion or the “free exercise thereof.” Therefore that teacher is out of bounds! The parents should sue that school and demand that incompetent teacher be dismissed!

  • danE DanE

    WE ARE AT WAR! The principal of the school said: “Bueker Middle School Principal Lance Tobin said Bibles are not banned on school grounds, but he does not yet have enough information to discuss the specific’s of this case.”

    Common evil answer for a liebrail commie scum demonicRAT who is intentionally helping the NWO and their evil cronies (congress, sotus, potus, etc…), destroy America and the American family. The sad part is, if this principal, LANCE TOBIN, is not what I described in the previous sentence, then the only conclusion one can imagine is; he is a COWARD and TRAITOR for not quickly responding, “it’s the boy’s right, he did nothing wrong, this teacher is a commie bastard, I WILL FIRED HIS STINKING COMMIE ARSE,” or giving an answer that is the heart of American gallantry. For a brief moment he had the world’s attention! Paul Revere is riding, shouting,”THE BRITISH ARE COMING, THE BRITISH ARE COMING!” Actually they already here and this commie teacher is one because he had his chance. Note: our treasonous commie leaders are laughing at us because we sit back and do nothing and they make, in your face movies, that taunt us and force us into rebellion.

    Jesus Saves, we are in the last days, ask Jesus to save you!

  • ErnieLane

    There needs to be a legal fund for going against these guys, That teacher should be sued until he goes bankrupt, even if the kid loses. Keep suing his sorry a**.

  • giant33

    It would be nice to here the principal say of course the student can read the Bible in his free time and the teacher is wrong. The PC is out of control.

  • Susan

    All “publlc” schools for the last 60 years have promoted Satanism, Moral Relativism and Vice to destroy Virtue in children. Only one rational religion–Christianity—because it is based on Natural Law Theory (Lockean philosophy) and teaches Truth/God and Reason and Logic (Natural Laws).

    That is why the Progressives demean only Christianity–to destroy Reason and Logic in children—so they believe any irrational Marxist concept like Vice is Virtue, Slavery is Freedom and “snow is black”.

    Removing Logic and Reason (Classical Education) for indoctrination only—has been going on since John Dewey to destroy Virtue (Wisdom) in children intentionally. Fichte stated in 1810 that you had to destroy Christianity an the Natural Family to collapse Western Civ and create “happy slaves” (group think conformity based on emotions where ignorance of Truth/God is key).

  • Dale_G1

    “The specifics of the case”??? It’s not very difficult to understand. PUBLIC school officials are under THREAT by extremist Christian hating groups like the ACLU and the Southern BS Law Center to not proselytize ANY religions teachings ( which includes the now politically correct Islam). That “separation of church and state” clause ( which was really designed to keep the state out of the church )
    DOES NOT APPLY to STUDENTS!!!
    I hope Jay Sekulow is planning on suing the teacher or the school. At the very least, the school should have a school assembly in the main auditorium and not only explain the difference, but also PUBICALLY APOLOGIZE to the student.

  • BJM2

    This country is getting worse and worse. We are starting to act like the Muslim countries. This kind of tyranny is NOT OK.

  • alfred e newman

    he should keep his communist party fairy tale book in his communist party head quarters and off public school grounds

    That teacher needs to be unemployed for good. How dare he decide what a person can and cannot read—ride him out of town on a rail Marshall, MO

  • Ormar

    Separation of church and state. Proselytizing can be quiet and still exist. School time free or otherwise is still school time and falls under their rules. Send your kid to a religious school that teaches the Bible and paid for by you. Our son went to Catholic School and we paid for it as well as paid for the public school he did not go to. A bible has no place in a public school.

  • cyclemama33

    Fire this teacher….he is ruining the minds of these young people. And if the principal don’t do something about this behavior against students he should be fired too forever. It’s hard enough to raise GOOD kids in this corrupt world without the help of a teacher who the students are suppose to and usually do respect.

  • Mark Smith

    take a bile to school with a a quran cover, they will never bother you again!

  • govtrumbull

    Liberals are for freedom as long as their concept of freedom is obeyed. If a student was reading the Koran, the student would be applauded. If they were wearing a Che Guevara tea shirt it would be just fine, wear an NRA t-shirt and they would be suspended from school, a Mexican flag on their locker would be just peachy, but not our Stars and Stripes. Is there something wrong with this picture?

  • Kaylee Burris

    I believe anyone should be able to read any book they wish,especially on their free time.THOUGH FYI the “BOOK(bible)”has no room to be taught in a science class .science is physical,the belief in the bible is emotional.Religion teaching should be left to the churches.

  • PATRIOT.WW48

    teacher needs a beating…….yea, yea, yea, not very Christian, well neither was the teacher….JESUS wasn’t nice to the money changers in the Temple…This Christian ain’t going to the Lions as easy as they did back in Rome…Here that, you Left-Wing Jesuit NWO Pope
