School Scrubs Bible Verse From Hallway Display

There was a Bible verse posted in a hallway at Western Oaks Middle School in Oklahoma. It was from the New Testament book of Ephesians.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever,” the verse read.

I’ll give you one guess as to who got triggered.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a complaint and said the display had to come down because it violated the constitution.

The Wisconsin-based atheist group says children are owed a secular public education free from religious proselytizing.

“It is well settled that public schools may not show favoritism toward or coerce belief or participation in religion,” attorney Chris Line wrote to Superintendent Fred Rhodes. “This display directly violates the First Amendment by creating the appearance that the district prefers religion over non-religion and Christianity over all other faiths. Courts have continually held that public school districts may not display religious messages or iconography in public schools.”

For the record, there’s no evidence that any child converted to Christianity as a result of observing the banner.

Regardless, the school district immediately removed the Bible verse – scrubbed from the walls.

“Please be advised that, during Spring Break, Putnam City Schools has removed the Bible verse posted on the wall at Western Oaks Middle School,” the district recently responded.

As I wrote in my new book, “Twilight’s Last Gleaming: Can America Be Saved?” ever since the atheists booted God out of public schools – many of our classrooms have gone to hell in a handbasket. Click here to read my book.

Should public schools be allowed to post Bible verses in hallways?
