BREAKING: Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President @RealDonaldTrump with the Russia smear. New emails show how senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.
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.
Why carry on better a bible than sexual classes with props to take home and use. Majority wins.
Jessica Greene should wake up to the fact that America has lost all Social, Ethical and Moral Values !! The Bible does Teach Us how to Behave Ethically and Morally !! Even if Jessica is an Atheist she should be teaching her son these values, so read the Bible !! This goes for all parents of developing age children !!! If we do not get back to our roots and a belief in God we are all doomed !!! General and President George Washington, President Abraham Lincoln and General and President Eisenhower all Believed and practiced that Belief !!!
MAY GOD HELP US SAVE AMERICA, OUR CONSTITUTION AND FREEDOM !!!
Excellent. God bless the Gideons who are truly a highway and byway ministry. I am Catholic and loved it when the Gideons were allowed to come to our line-up at the Sheriff's Office and explain their ministry and hand out New Testament bibles to those of us deputies who wanted one.
This is not the school supporting any religion. The school is only allowing a religious group to present their program to the students. This is just a fraction of counter balance to the crap that is being force fed our kids about Islam and all of the other cults under the guise of "tolerance".
Again, God Bless the Gideons!
P.S. - I will not stay at any hotel or motel which does not have a Gideon bible in the nightstand drawer.
Ms. Green YOU ARE STUPID!
Ms Greee is not the only one. A few others are on this site. I refuse to be part of a group that allows bashing of my faith.
Diane, who is bashing your faith? I don't recall anyone saying anything about the Catholics other than what I said that you are to pray directly to God/Jesus since they are one n the same!
Go back and read what Christiann Revere said at the beginning of this blog 'that all Catholics are going to hell anyway'.
And your attacks are but insults for you have no idea why we pray as we do but bash us for praying the way we do.
I have already asked to be removed from this site.
All I can say Diane is that I was raised as a Protestant. My first husband was a Catholic so I saw first hand how they worshiped and I object to that. Jesus said we are to pray directly to Him not to one of his disciples or to His earthly mother. She is only special as she carried Him in her womb for 9 months and was chosen by God. She can't intercede for anyone, nor can the disciples. Your faith is your faith and mine is mine, I prefer to pray directly to Him as I have been taught. When someone is so touchy about their faith, then you are right to asked to be removed. We as Christians are supposed to be able to take remarks in our stride and keep on keeping on. I didn't say anything derogatory about your faith so please don't say that I did and what I did say wasn't an insult, except perhaps to you and you alone!
Did you note something special about all these freedom takeovers in that a minority of people or a person tries to control a group. The Bible suggests that is actually a spirit and is called the Spirit of Control or more correctly a Controlling Spirit! It was a choice and that makes it a Constitutional right since Separation of State and Church does not take away freedoms when one enters a tax funded building. The Supreme Court already ruled as such! If she does not like our freedoms she can always move to Hong Kong where they are protesting against their loss!
Maybe this democrat... LADY ?... would rather have someone hand out material pertaining to how to get an abortion, OR graphic pictures showing small children HOW to apply a Conxxx. This school should be burned down, and the principal fired, and an apology issued immediately!
