Toni Richardson, a devout Christian teacher and mother of two who was warned by the Cony School in Augusta, Maine, that she could be fired for using phrases such as “I will pray for you” and “you were in my prayers” while at work has filed charges of religious discrimination and retaliation with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
The charges were filed on behalf of Richardson last Tuesday by Eaton Peabody and First Liberty Institute, the largest legal organization in the nation dedicated exclusively to defending religious freedom for all Americans.
A memo warning Richardson about her use of religious language in school, notes that the Christian teacher had lodged a complaint against a male teacher whom she alleged had behaved aggressively toward her during a disagreement…. read more
On April 12, The Blaze reported the Public Broadcasting Service has been for more than decade featuring a lesson plan that instructs students to be more sympathetic to the plight of Islamic terrorists in Palestine. The plan, titled “Dying to be a Martyr,” features, among other things, video interviews with Islamic terrorists who tell viewers why their attacks on Israelis are justified. There are no instructions in the lesson plan for teachers to denounce these views and no videos are featured showing the Israeli response.
Among the other biased aspects of the lesson plan are instructions for teachers to “Check for understanding by asking students to respond to the focus question. (Mohanned, feels he would rather die and by a martyr than live his life, sees his life as hollow—in contrast he sees Israelis as happy, going out, having fun, traveling.) Ask your students why Mohanned may feel that way (Answers may include: Palestinians have less land, fewer privileges, cannot come and go as they please.)”…. read more
The lesson plan is also featured by Thirteen.org, a website belonging to the WNET-TV network, the PBS affiliate for New York City and the areas immediately surrounding the city. It appears the New York PBS affiliate is the producer of the lesson plan. The author of the plan is a long-time public school teacher in upstate New York.
The Christian Truther was contacted by a concerned citizen regarding Virginia and how now, Vaccines are a requirement to attend middle school.
The blatant disregard for American freedoms is expressed within the above image, as the concerned citizen rightly stated;
“Why can people be prochoice to dismember and disintegrate a baby but we can’t
be prochoice about what goes into our bodies!”
Welcome to the Vaccine state; ‘where unborn-murder is legal and recommended, and we, the state, regularly will inject you with whatever we please.’… read more
A national religious liberty law firm is threatening to sue a Florida public school district over allegations that a high school math teacher forced Christian students to remove cross necklaces and that she is engaging in LGBT activism in her classroom.
The Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter on Wednesday to Superintendent Jeff Eakins of Hillsborough County Public Schools on behalf of a ninth-grade student who claims that her math teacher at Riverview High School, Lora Jane Riedas, required her to remove her cross while in class.
According to the letter, Riedas has banned as many as three students from wearing crosses in her classroom, “claiming on occasion that they are ‘gang symbols.'” The cross pendant that the teacher allegedly forced the ninth-grade client to remove was less than an inch long…. read more
lhwm notes: John 8:42 AMP Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father [but He is not], you would love and recognize Me, for I came from God [out of His very presence] and have arrived here. For I have not even come on My own initiative [as self-appointed], but He [is the One who] sent Me.
John 12:25 AMP The one who loves his life [eventually] loses it [through death], but the one who hates his life in this world [and is concerned with pleasing God] will keep it for life eternal.
John 12:43 AMP for they loved the approval of men more
than the approval of God.
(Natural News) Rochester, Minnesota schools began sending notes to parents in January threatening to remove children from classrooms if they could not provide proof that they had received government mandated vaccines. While some are applauding this controversial strong-arming method, many are furious over this nanny state behavior and being told to comply or face the consequences.
Minnesota requires several vaccines for students to be found in compliance including:
- Diptheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTaP, DTP, DT)
- Pollo (IPV, OPV)
- Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR)
- Hepatitis B (hep B)
- Varicella (chickenpox)
- Meningococcal (MCV, MPSV)
They also recommend but do not require, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Hepatitis A, and Influenza. Failure to receive even one of the necessary shots resulted in children being removed from class. It should be noted that Minnesota takes their cues on vaccines from federal “recommendations” developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC)…. [read more]
