The family of a second-grade student at a Texas elementary school says their daughters teacher took her Bible away during a read to myself session.
The Liberty Institute, a nonprofit legal group specializing in religious liberty cases, says the family reached out for assistance after a teacher at Hamilton Elementary in Cypress allegedly told the girl not to bring the Bible back to school again.
The teacher reportedly said the Bible is inappropriate reading material.

Someone posted the same story one minute after you.
Legimate question: Are you guys notified by Fox News whenever they post a new story, and you then immediately go to FR to link it? This happens all the time, and I have always wondered how that happens.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
President Ronald Reagan
This is why I keep telling everyone that we should only allow grownups to be teachers. ADULTS! These clowns should be nowhere near American children. There is NOTHING inappropriate about The Bible.
Gather a posse and go to the school with GUNS! These Orwellian thought police need to be run out with fear.
Imagine if a teacher took a Koran away from a muslim kid. They would really have to keep her identity secret.
It just shows, along with Cornball and George P., that TX is not nearly as conservative as some seem to think.
It’s 12% black and 37% Hispanic (and gaining).
So you’re correct.
There is NOTHING inappropriate about The Bible.”
Not sure of the source but the teacher and school district really are trying to put a spin on all of this by saying that she could read anything during free time that she was able to if she was old enough to understand what she was reading and could pronounce the words.
School administrators are also spouting that the parents should have just talked with them to resolve the issue. Had they done so though, we all know that this story would never have seen the light of day.
Hats off to the parents for shining some light on this issue.
“Heather Has Two Mommies” is OK?
koran would have been okay...
So why isn’t the name of the “alleged” “Teacher” published?
Let’s find out who he/she is
“Heather Has Two Mommies is OK?”
Yeah, I can see it now:
“Teacher, how do you pronounce c-u-n-n-i-l-i-n-g-u-s ?”
The teacher must have afraid that other students seeing a Bible being read in class would have caught their interest.....
Can’t have little Susie being a bad influence now can we ? / S
The lawyer would have been my second stop.
Because the first stop would have been with a baseball bat....
I do think you may be right. We do have pockets of muslims and their korans and head dressers in schools. AND, we do have education administrators who have cajones smaller than a sugar ants. Korans are allowed, and muslim women’s day wear, but since the communists of this country have found the little blurb in the Communist Manifesto, it’s all about separation of church and state and NOT about our First
Amendment to the Constitution of America. “Whereby it states
“Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion”,......So the members of the media and even members of our congress spounting the communist manifesto, that there will be a separation of church and state. We don’t have that. We allow all people with their faiths to practice it, without interference of our government. The
communists and muslims countries have only their “faiths”, no foreigner can practice their faiths.
And you have a problem with double posting why?
Use the freedom of information act and request emails from principal to staff with search terms reading and bible
I get the Fox stories off of FB.
Ezekiel23:20 is a little graphic.
You must be one of those Kalifornia or North Eastern transplants who came to our great state of freedom. Sweetie, move back where you came from. We live our RED
STATE conservative ways. We don’t want progressive, like the place you must have come from. Find another state to live in. We like our conservative ways.
What happened to the church who use would stand up to this...and speak out.
Remember when Russia and China were officially atheist nations, and the United States was overwhelmingly Christian? My how times change.
Very likely that the USA will have to go what they went through, or perhaps worse, in order to bring the nation back to God.
I recently received a reproduction copy of "The New England Primer", originally published in Boston in 1690, which lasted as the country's number one reader for well over 240 years.
It was a complete surprise to me how much the Bible was used by this textbook to teach children to read. The Founders, as well as millions of Americans since, learned to read from the "Primer" and the Bible. I fear those days are long gone from our public school system. I also fear for our society.
Better yet, have two kids who sit beside each other bring in a Koran and Bible, and watch the teacher’s head explode as she decides what to do about it. That’s the kind of cognitive dissonance I’d pay to see...
Maybe she was reading Song of Songs /s
Some people have to learn the hard way. Millions of Americans apparently must.
