Public schools are becoming more hostile towards Christians every day.
Radical leftist administrators are waging a war on our youth to prevent them from practicing their faith and exercising their First Amendment rights.
But what this high school principal told a group of praying students is unhinged.
In Texas, a group of students decided to pray for a former classmate who was involved in an accident.
When they started praying during non-class time at an empty lunch table, they were confronted by their principal.
He was furious and told them: “Y’all don’t do that again.”
Now the school is facing legal action.
Christian Headlines reports:
A number of lawyers from First Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s leading defenders of religious liberty, recently challenged the decision made by a Texas high school principal to isolate students who wished to gather and pray with one another when they had a break from classes.
“In other words, the students were told that they could not pray in view of the other students,” First Liberty clarified.
A letter was sent to Honey Grove Independent School District Superintendent Todd Morrison early last week, describing the series of events that took place.
The legal team disclosed that it was representing Carrie Allen on behalf of her eighth-grade daughter, Hannah stating, “In early September 2018, Hannah and a group of other students decided to pray for one of their former classmates who had recently been in an accident. During lunch when students are permitted to talk and move around the cafeteria, the students walked to an empty table, held hands, and quietly prayed with one another.
Almost immediately after, Principal Lee Frost walked over to the students and told them in response to the student-initiated, student-led prayer, ‘Y’all don’t do that again.’”
In the letter to the school district First Liberty said, “By mandating that Hannah and the other students hide when they pray, Principal Frost sends a message to Hannah and all the other students in the school that prayer is illegitimate, disfavored, and should not occur in public.
The students obeyed all the rules and went out of their way to peacefully pray for a fellow classmate.
And still the principal went out of his way to persecute the students for their faith.
This is disturbing on several levels.
At best, this is just one crazed Christian-hating liberal that acted out of line.
At worst, with this action coming from the principal, such behavior is sure to trickle down to other school administrators and teachers.
His behavior could deter other students from exercising their faith for fear of being rebuked by the principal.
Radical atheists have ramped up their attacks on Christians all across the country.
As we reported, a middle school in Virginia banned Jesus in their Christmas concert this year.
These are not just unfortunate one-off occurrences.
Christians are being told to shut up or face the consequences.
Do you think the principal should be fired for persecuting his students who were praying for an injured classmate? Let us know in the comments below.
