Mom Complains About School Bible Handout, Gets Slammed By Local Parents: ” You’re Outnumbered Here”

When Jessica Greene’s fifth-grade son, Leo, brought home a bible from Cloverleaf Elementary school last Thursday, she was livid. She said her son told her that they were handing them out in class. “We were in class,” Leo explained. “Our teacher said that these people have volunteered to hand out Bibles.”


Leo told her that every kid could take a bible if they wanted one. If they were not interested, they could just simply go to the other side of the room. Jessica was outraged and explain her feelings to local news station WXIA, “I was just shocked the school system would do that. I tried to contact the superintendent, but he has not returned my calls.”

John Harper is the Bartow County Superintendent, and he did not respond to calls from Greene or the local media. RawStory.com, however, reported that the school did write on its Facebook page:
The Gideons are permitted to offer Bibles to students who wish to pick them up. It is strictly voluntary, and the library was the location where students could pick one up; our librarian did not give them out. We appreciate your input. If you have further concerns, please contact administration during school hours. Thank you!
Greene was not satisfied with the school’s explanation, so she wrote a comment expressing her discontent. Other parents felt overwhelming outrage as well, but not directed toward the bible giveaway; they felt it towards Jessica Greene.

the good part of this story is that parents/citizens are starting to stand up to the instigators of taking over our country/our children.  And they should.  A year or so ago I was watching multiple videos of local school board clips -the "boards" were dismissive and outright mean toward any one "singular" parent who had objection to anything from sex-ed to 8 yr olds to advocating Islam gets special rights over others...  One person stood up, you could see the discomfort in the other [parents] but they were so uncomfortable, and the "one" was being smeared/sometimes physically removed out of meetings by guards, etc. - so everyone else watched but didn't say anything to support the truth.  I guess they just didn't want to be in trouble too?  Anyway, I always thought if those other parents (the large majority always) had all stood up and said, "he's right," or she's right, etc. and we stand behind them - a lot of this educational takeover would never have happened.

So, it is really really delightful to see these parents speak up and work together.  More parents will be standing up soon too.  This is good.

100% correct, people must unite, we must stand together for the greater good!

I am a Cathoic and am opposed to these handouts. Why the Gidion Bible was alone picked is confusing to me as well.

Offer the Bible as children leave the school, not within its premises. What next, - Muslims able to hand out the Quran in the classroom to the dismay of students who might be Christian or Jewish?

Again as M61A1 just said it was voluntary, what part of that don't you understand?  You don't hear the Jews complaining do you?  NO, so shut up!

Funny, we ask for controls on these things, but have no concept who will be controlling us or to what extent.  Those who are willing to exchange liberty for security are deserving of neither.

A catholic?????

Catholics are going to Pray anyway. You pray to Mary who only gave birth to Jesus Christ. You have to use the name of Jesus when you pray. Like this, by the power and authority of the blood of Jesus Christ I pray for.......or I rebuke the powers of hell ...in the name of Jesus. The name above all names.

*Edited Content, NO Attacking People, Please Re-Read the RULES!!*

Christiann, the Scripture does not teach us to speak this way.  When speaking truth (and I do not agree with everything you are saying), it must be done with love and humility.  This is filled with contempt and does not reflect how Christ would speak to anyone.

"Mary who 'only' gave birth to Jesus Christ"......the Son of the Father in heaven...who herself was born without original sin and bore The Child as a result of an Immaculate Conception? We pray to Mary to intercede on our behalf, being the mother of Jesus Christ.

You are to ONLY pray to God/Jesus, none other, no not even Mary.  Jesus said I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, NO MAN/WOMAN can come to Father but through HIM!!!!!  We are NOT to pray to Mary at all!

We can spend a long time discussing theology, a topic I personally quite like.  However we need to be certain we are not becoming angry with one another, and turning this into a slug fest when that is not the purpose of this page.

Marcus, if that is in response to what I wrote, I am not angry, just stating a fact!  Jesus tells us we are not to argue about religion, however, we also not to pray to someone other than Jesus/God either.  If it wasn't because of what I said then I apologize!

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
