Florida High School Students Forced to Remove Cross Jewelry and Participate in LGBT Activities
The Stream ^ | 04/21/2017 | Nancy Flory

Students in a math class at Riverview High School in Florida are being persecuted for their faith. They are punished for not removing their cross jewelry. They are harassed for not embracing the LGBT agenda pushed on them by their lesbian teacher. But one ninth-grade student is pushing back. Her attorneys filed a demand letter requiring the teacher to cease and desist by close of business Thursday.Cross.jpg - 500

Parents told Liberty Counsel that at least three students were not allowed to wear their cross necklaces. Math teacher Lora Jane Riedas claimed they were “gang symbols.” When one student asked why, Riedas told her she was disrespectful and she must take her necklace off. The necklace held a crucifix less than an inch long. The student felt she was forced to deny her faith.

Riedas is a member of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s Leadership Institute. She engages in blatant LGBT political activism in her classroom. Her classroom is decorated with LGBT insignia and rainbows. She decorated students’ notebooks in rainbow stickers without their permission. She singled out one student for several false “misbehavior” claims after the student removed the sticker from her notebook.

Riedas has plans to promote GLSEN’s “Day of Silence” Friday. GLSEN’s guide requires students to take part in political activism. Liberty Counsel stated that students can either “’go along to get along’ or risk being ‘outed’ as disagreeing with the teacher.” Students are encouraged to support the LGBT agenda and Day of Silence by not speaking. Those who speak will be required to answer class questions.

Hmmm. Did any of the “indoctreneese”(sp) object or raise a concern about it? If not, they have been properly indoctrinated.

Here’s what the teacher should do: force m*slim students to remove m*slim things, and to wear LGBT jewelry. This should be fun.

This is NOT a Teacher....

This is a Lesbian bully.

Christian Crosses are NOT ‘gang symbols’.

She needs to lose her teaching certification & be blackballed from teaching in any location in the USA.

IF I had a kid in school that might be sugject to this kind of torment, I would tell them:

Go to the bathroom

Call me IMMEDIATELY

I would be there to remove my child from that school

Call lawyer & sue the pants off this dyke & her supporters.

School children should NEVER be subjected to this kind of torture.

Here’s the thing people need to remember - AND what needs to be taught to our kids, when dealing with leftist control freaks:

One cannot be “forced” to do anything, unless “force” is used.

Simply Refuse.

It’s a choice. There are consequences to choices, but you either refuse to comply, or you comply. That’s all there is to it.

Sometimes, one has to take a stand. And if we are to SAY we are a free people, then we should ACT like free people.

For myself... I’m all about using the middle finger for its intended purpose, with a heart “GFYourself” added when someone tries to “force” me to do anything.

It’s so... American.

I have been wearing a cross on my right lapel and an American flag pin on the left for years now. It serves as a demonstration of both faith and First Amendment adherence.

Don’t worry. Justice Gorsooch and his “conservative” queer Jesus doctrine teaching church will get right on fixing things.

Maybe.

Not.
