#1 School Official: Carrying Bible Could Lead to Fight03-01-2010, 01:50 PM
A 16-year-old boy from Racine was recently sent to the principal's office for carrying his Bible.
Nathan de La Garza tells the Racine Journal Times his pastor had challenged him to carry his Bible with him at all times.
It didn't go over well at Park High School, where an assistant principal told him to keep religion discussions out of school.
De La Garza tells the Journal Times the assistant principal was concerned he might offend somebody and entice a physical fight.
A district spokesman claims some of De La Garza's discussions had turned into disruptive "debates."
Story here“I have learned now that while those who speak about one's miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.”
God judged it better to bring good out of evil than to suffer no evil to exist.

Wow, if high schools could only ban all things that might make students fight....
I would think sports jerseys would rate higher on that scale than the Bible. Like, if I had a kid and moved to Denver. If he wore a Wings jersey to school, I would expect him to come home all beat up.
What this kid needs to do is to team up with an arab or african-american muslim, and see if the school would ban that kid from carrying the Koran. If the school fails to do so, then the christian kid can clearly claim discrimination and sue the pants off of everyone involved.

The school could (theoretically) punish "debate" behavior that violated the school rules but they can't forbid the kid from carrying a bible or discussing it during non-class time. Every school that pulled this kind of thing has ended up losing in court of settling out of court.
The very fact that this happens so often kind of shows you how stupid public school teachers and administrators are, I guess.

Funny how the Bible is getting treated worse then Mein Kampf.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.
