Teacher, LGBT Partner Are ĎAnti-Christian Bigotsí for Banning Cross Necklaces
Lifezette ^ | 4/24/2017 | Leah Jessen

A lesbian teacher in Tampa, Florida, allegedly told at least three of her students to take off the cross necklaces they were wearing while in her ninth-grade classroom.

Lora Jane Riedas, a math teacher at Riverview High School, has apparently promoted an LGBT agenda in her school. She even displayed political-activist material in the classroom, including a button that says, “I love my LGBT students.”

“At the beginning of the semester, Ms. Riedas placed LGBT rainbow stickers on students’ classroom folders without their consent, which were there one day when the students arrived,” (snip)

The teacher and her partner are “anti-Christian bigots,” LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham said on her radio show Monday, during an interview with Matt Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel.

“Parents have got to stand up and fight against this,” Ingraham added. “Otherwise you’re going to lose your kids and your schools.”(snip)

Liberty Counsel represents a ninth-grade student at Riverview High School. The student wore a tiny crucifix, less than one inch long, to school.

“I need you to take your necklace off,” Riedas allegedly said to a student.

“Our client did not want to be disrespectful, so she took it off, but she felt bad because she felt she was being forced to deny her faith,” states a demand letter sent to the Hillsborough County Public Schools superintendent from Liberty Counsel on behalf of parents of children in Riedas’ classroom.

The teacher claimed the cross necklaces worn by the students were “gang symbols,” according to Liberty Counsel.

Here’s an interesting tidbit about the teacher’s lesbian partner (who is also a teacher at the same school): “For spirit day, she came dressed as a Catholic nun,” said Staver on “The Laura Ingraham Show.” And that nun’s outfit came complete with a cross necklace, Staver noted.

Every society in the world has always considered same-sex liaisons as wrong. Even if we make them legal they are STILL wrong. That is God's law.

Jay Sekulow and the American Center for Law and Justice should be informed.

Trust me; I’d be all up in this EXCEPT....there is nothing to back up this allegation. There is NO story anywhere, except the author of the story. I am ALL for calling out anti-Christian bigotry, but this story doesn’t pass the smell test.

BTW: Freepers need to start reading the stories at the source.

The one on the left has some really low standards. Possibly a case of bad self esteem. She should see a therapist about that.

The well-respected Conservative commentator (Laura Ingram) believes this is a valid story. Should we believe her or you?

A simple search on the Liberty Center turned up the story.

“Every society in the world has always considered same-sex liaisons as wrong. Even if we make them legal they are STILL wrong. That is God’s law.”

“If a man lies with a man as he lies with a woman, it’s an abomination unto the LORD.” God said it, I believe it and that settles it as far as I’m concerned.

The Liberty Council is going after her so you can rest assured that there is some there, there.

Saying there is no story anywhere simply means you've done nothing on your end to learn more, and that you aren't paying attention to what's happening in public school classrooms. Doesn't pass the smell test? Get real.

I bet she has had that costume for years and it’s part of her and her girlfriend’s private naughty time theme.

Just refuse. Coldly, without any doubt. No teacher has the legal authority to enforce this. Have her call the police. If they do, call the ACLJ and get your college paid for by the school district.

Why violate a long-standing tradition?
