Deputy called to stop 7-year-old from sharing scripture at school

Christina and Jaime Zavala are raising a 7-year-old boy in Palmdale, Calif., obviously with an emphasis on their Christian faith. After the first-grader had been reading aloud the Bible verses his mother packed in his lunch bags, many of his peers began asking for their own copies.

Administrators saw this act as a violation of school policy and reportedly ordered the boy to keep the scriptures to himself. To prove they were serious, a lawsuit claims, they sent a law enforcement officer to the Zavala’s home.

“The deputy sheriff said he had been sent by the school,” said Liberty Counsel attorney Richard Mast.

While the officer was courteous enough, he reportedly delivered the school’s concern that the Bible verses might offend others.

“I would expect something like this to happen in Communist Romania, where I went to school,” opined Horatio Mihet, representing the student and his family for Liberty Counsel. “But cops don’t bully 7-year-olds who want to talk about Jesus in the Land of the Free.”

    Very very sad commentary on our govt. and all this implies!!! Give me a break! A child was reading from the bible- better than some materials children read!! We are truly so backwards now!! I don’t think we will get back to sanity any time soon!!! The school could have told the parents. And ask them to tell their son That unfortunately, school is not appropriate for religious wonderful Words from the bible!! I love this boy for trying to share with friends!!!

    Did an army of muscled pinheads high on cop viagra arrive in their armored personnel carriers to play SWAT? Was the neighborhood put on lock down while the situation was “secured?” Were all the kids’ hands tie locked behind their backs and placed face down in the hallways until the criminal could be taken into custody?

  3. The school administrators need a lesson on the First Amendment and that children have a constitutionally protected right to exercise their religion in that manner.
