Rebel with a Book

Think of all the miserable behavior troubles facing school officials today. Violence, drugs, theft, profanity, pregnancy, Bible reading....

Whoa. "Bible reading"?

Yep. Officials at a Knoxville, Tennessee elementary school had to swing into action to stop a ten-year-old from -- ladies, hide your babies! -- reading his Bible!

Agape Press reports that "The district claims the Bible reading jeopardizes student safety and that, because recess is not 'free time,' they can prohibit Bible reading during that time." Yessir, there goes another kid, jeopardizing student safety by reading his Bible!

(And this at an age where many parents would pay their kids to read their Bibles more!)

The parents are seeking legal relief, and rightly so.
