Boy Suspended For Bringing Bible To School!

Parents need to know and understand their religious rights and they need to clearly pass them on to their children.  One 16 year old young man is having to learn the hard way that sometimes our Constitutional rights still have to be defended and fought for.  H/T to The Blaze :

A San Diego-area teen suspended for bringing his Bible to school and talking about his faith has filed a lawsuit against the school district, the superintendent, an assistant principal, and a teacher.

In January 2010, 16-year-old Kenneth Dominguez was suspended for two days from Gateway East High School for violating a teacher’s order not to bring his Bible to school and not to discuss his faith with others. Dominguez’s Bible was even confiscated by that teacher, who said Dominguez’s actions violated “separation of church and state:”

“He didn’t give any sermons or yell or scream… just sharing his faith with other students. That was it,” Brad Dacus, Dominguez’s attorney, told KGTV, adding that we don’t live in communist China.

Even the ACLU is calling the case a “clear” free-speech violation.

But a spokeswoman for the Grossmont Union High School District — the district named in the suit — contends there’s much more to the story. She couldn’t elaborate, however, to KGTV because of federal privacy laws.

Christianity is constantly under attack.  I have trouble imagining a teacher treating a Muslim student with such contempt.  Kudos for this young man for having the courage of his convictions and shame on the teacher, the school and the school district for stripping him of his Constitutional rights!

If you feel as outraged as I am about this the contact information for the district and the school are below.  Feel free to contact them and respectfully remind them that this is America- not Communist China.
