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 irony of this whole thing is that when our public school system was first established the congress of the United States actually provided FREE bibles to the schools. But then the progressive dictators had been thrown out of the country by then. How might we now do the same?

Isn't it funny how liberals claim to have the corner on caring and compassion, accusing Christians of being "judgmental" (ooh scary!)  Yet just under their very thin skin they fear and hate anything that is different than they are.

PS  Go to a natural disaster some time.  Let me know if you ever see a tent with those "Freedom From Religion" fools handing out sandwiches and blankets to those who need them.  I seriously doubt you will see one, and if you do it is an anomaly.

I think this B needs to really learn about GOD and COUNTRY!  You see, God comes first and then country.  Read your Constitution, perhaps then you might understand and that goes for the atheists too.  Our Fore Fathers fought for your right to object and the school is using their 1st Amendment rights.  You on the other hand if you don't want to follow the Constitution, then you have NO rights or right to object!!!!  It is past time that we allow these 1 person objections to get out of hand and as for the atheist organization, you have no rights in this case either!!!!!! 

AMEN!!

THE B-I-B-L-E that is the BOOK for me the B-I-B-L-E AMEN!!

Shameful of this anti-Christian woman!! Atheism is anti-CHRISTIAN / anti-USA Everything!!

Its either we stand up for God or we don't say anything and allow the devil to come in and take over everything just like Congress

Thats true, We need to start standing up for Jesus and as Christians period. If not, this will ONLY get worse and we will NOT be able to get it back. Christians need to stand for the Lord and the country. If not, just set back and dont whine about how bad things are getting.

This is the best news I've heard in a long time! It's about time we get some truth in the hands of our next generation. Maybe they will learn that liars are Satan's followers.

The vast minority of people like her should not get away with dictating what should be allowed and what should not. What gives her the right to demand what she is out numbered on. If she wants to bring it to national attention then by all means do it. Get a lawyer beech!!!

Good, Christians were never meant to be door mats.

someone should tell this intolerant elitist to get on a plane and head to north korea and they won't ever have to worry about seeing a bible

Since they didnt hand them out and the son chose to take one, Mom, Maybe your son is trying to tell you that HE wants to learn about the Lord.  Sad excuse for a mother.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
