An eight-year-old student in Taunton, Massachusetts, drew a picture of Jesus on the cross for an assignment about Christmas. The school sent the boy home and orderedg him to undergo a psychological evaluation. The school allegedly “feared his artwork might be exposing violent tendencies.” The school has since denied the accusation that the child was suspended. Attorney Alan Reinach, President of the North American Religious Liberty Association–West, says it doesn’t take away from the fact that more of these types of discriminatory, anti-Christian actions are flaring up in schools across the country. Reinach there is an indisputable trend of secularists with views about separation of church and state overstepping their bounds and crossing into blatant violations of 1st Amendment rights. In addition to the boy who drew Jesus, we will discuss a story in a New Jersey elementary school where a third-grade girl was forbidden by her teacher from reading the Bible during quiet time. The teacher and the principal both said it was “inappropriate” material that should stay home. Where is this trend line really going? How can this be happening in a nation that was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, on its way to becoming the leader of the free world? What kind of rights do parents of these students really have and how can they exercise them? Join Alan Reinach as tonight's guest on the Political Pistachio Radio Revolution - Conservative News and Commentary
