Mother sues school for censoring Bible

From AgapePress:

Last October, Donna Busch was invited to visit her son Wesley's kindergarten class in Philadelphia and to take part in "Me Week." As the featured student of the week, Wesley was allowed to choose his favorite book and have his mother read an excerpt from it aloud to the class at Culbertson Elementary.

But when Wesley chose the Bible as his preferred book, his mother was barred from reading a passage from Psalm 118 because of its religious content. Principal Thomas Cook told Mrs. Busch that reading the Bible in class is against the law because it violates the establishment clause of the First Amendment -- that is, the so-called "separation of church and state."

According to Busch's attorney, John Whitehead with The Rutherford Institute, the Christian mom was then offered the option of reading from another book instead -- one about witches, witchcraft, and Halloween. However, she declined.

Whitehead says the incident might have passed over without further incident had it not been for something that occurred about a week later. He says, "Wesley, the kindergartener, came home and told his mother it was bad to read the Bible. She said, 'Where'd you hear that from?' And he said, 'My teacher told me.'"

From under what rock to they drag these bigots that hate Christianity so much?!? And why do they seem to always be put in charge of some school?

On the Rutherford Institute's website John Whitehead went on to say, “By excluding religious expression, and Christian expression and symbols in particular, from the classroom, in the so-called name of the ‘separation of church and state,’ Culbertson Elementary school officials have exhibited the kind of hostility toward religion that amounts to a violation of Mrs. Busch’s fundamental constitutional rights.”

I really hope they sue these morons for enough to send a message to other brain-dead teachers and principles that this kind of stupidity is unacceptable.
