Bible Banned from 'Free Reading' Time in Classroom

Officials at Broward County Public Schools banned a fifth grader from reading the Bible during “free reading” time, according to lawyers from the Liberty Institute who are threatening to sue the school for violating the First Amendment.

Giovanni Rubeo is a fifth-grade student at the school, who had been given a Bible at church as a Christmas gift. It’s his favorite book, so he decided he’d like to read it during the time in class where students are allowed to read anything they choose.

Swornia Thomas is Giovanni’s teacher. On April 8, Thomas told Giovanni he’s not allowed to read the Bible in her class and ordered him to put it away. Giovanni asked her to call his father, Paul Rubeo, about the incident.

Thomas did so, leaving a voicemail that included, “I noticed that he [Giovanni] has a book—a religious book—in the classroom. He’s not permitted to read those books in my classroom.” Rubeo ...

Joe bob, you got it right-government schools which get their guidelines from Dept of Ed and the NEA. Another word for guidelines is indoctrination.

These are not "free" schools nor are they "public" schools. They are government schools and what the government funds it controls. We erred in allowing the government or state for that matter to have control of the local schools. But, in order to get the "free" $$ we were willing to give up control. Freedom is not free so in order to turn things around it's going to cost!

I found that to be the case as on a Democratic Party discussion forum I told a homsoexual man who claims to be a Christian that unless he repented of his homosexuality that he would be going to Hell for all eternity. And the homosexuality man stated that if he goes to Hell then so be it.

Why don't public schools ban reading of the Koran like they do the Bible? Seems hypocritical. But liberals are hypocrites. Why do public schools keep discriminating against Christians when courts have ruled that reading the Bible in public schools is not against the United States Constitution?

So much for "free reading".
