A very brave 7th-grade student fought for her freedom of religion right to believe in God when she stood before the Texas school board in Katy, Texas. She was told by her teacher that any answer other than ‘God is a myth’ was wrong and they would be given a failing grade if they answered otherwise.
EAG reported that a Texas seventh-grader stood up for her religious beliefs after she alleges her teacher forced students to deny that God is real, and threatened them with failing grades if they did not agree.
Jordan Wooley, a seventh grade student at West Memorial Junior High School in the Katy Independent School District, testified at a school board meeting the other night about an assignment in her reading class that caused serious controversy, and expressed frustration about her teacher’s atheist indoctrination.
“Today I was given an assignment in school that questioned my faith and told me that God was not real. Our teacher had started off saying that the assignment had been giving her problems all day. We were asked to take a poll to say whether God is fact, opinion or a myth and she told anyone who said fact or opinion was wrong and God was only a myth,” Wooley told board members.
Students immediately objected, Wooley said, but the teacher refused to consider their position.
“Another student asked the teacher if we could put what we believe in the paper, and she said we could … but you would fail the paper if you do,” Wooley told the board.
It’s not easy to do what Wooley did, especially at her age, but it’s clear her convictions run deep and that she is a fighter. Hopefully the school will take action against this teacher and fire her for inflicting her personal religious on the children.
