You remember reader Jessica. Her daughter’s Wichita, Kansas elementary school was host to the book fair featuring pro-Christianity books…
The FFRF sent a letter to the school letting them know they were not legally allowed to push one particular religion onto children that way.
It doesn’t look like the school learned its lesson. They have no fear of a lawsuit. In fact, they’re only getting worse.
Next week is a short week since kids will be on Thanksgiving break Wednesday through Friday. But in the days leading up to that, the kids will be going to church.
On Monday, the students will go to a local Christian church to prepare food for their Thanksgiving feast.
On Tuesday, they’ll spend the day in church where their feast will take place.
I’m gonna guess that no one’s going out of their way to make sure the church stays Jesus-free during the festivities. Even if there’s no direct proselytizing, who’s going to make sure the signs, brochures, images of Jesus, and Bibles are all out of sight?
By the way, all of this is happening without parental consent. There were no permission slips. And the whole event is sponsored by the church and church volunteers.
What if there’s a Muslim mother who doesn’t want her child going to a Christian church? It doesn’t matter. What about the atheist parents who thought they put their kids in a public school to get away from shit like this? No one cares.
Parents are welcome to volunteer, but no one is asking them if it’s ok that their kids are spending time in a Christian church.
You know there would be an uproar if the kids were sent to a Hindu temple for this amount of time. FOX News Channel would be up in arms if they knew teachers were taking kids to a Mosque to hold a Thanksgiving feast.
For the same reasons, we should be concerned about this. Why is it incumbent on one parent to have to sound the alarms about this? Are any teachers or administrators trying to put a stop to this? If not, why not? We should all be horrified that these teachers in Wichita are more interested in bringing children to Jesus than doing their jobs.
Once again, FFRF has already been notified. But no telling if anything’s going to change by Monday.
