Two Young Women Are (Still) Suing Their Public School District for Making Students Attend a Christian Assembly

A lot of you sent me a link to this report of a high school student, Magdalene Bedi, who is suing the Rankin County School District in Mississippi because they told students to attend an assembly that turned out to be all about Jesus.

WAPT News in Jackson even claims to have “exclusive video” of the assembly.

While I’m very interested in the case, this isn’t news.

Everything that’s being reported happened back in April and May. The “exclusive video” was publicly available on YouTube in April, and the American Humanist Association posted a copy of the lawsuit online in May:

Seriously, old news. Amazing news, mind you — Magdalene and her friend are heroes for bringing this story to the public — but there are no new developments.

When something happens, I’ll be sure to post updates.

In the meantime, let’s all take a moment to congratulate WAPT for their big, breaking, exclusive story.

They’re only about six months behind the rest of us.
