Teen Suspended For Posting Bible Verses In Response To Gay Pride Exhibit

Being in a country where we have the freedom to express ourselves is a blessing.

A luxury not many countries have, openly advocating our point of view is something people have taken to soapboxes all over the nation.

But what happens when a backward society stifles morality, while exploiting anti-family and anti-God stances?

You get people who praise the wicked, while condemning those who do good.

An Ohio high school student is feeling the brunt of skewed liberal thinking after she was suspended by the principal for expressing her faith.

Fox News reported:

A high school student in Ohio is speaking out after she was suspended for posting Bible verses in her school in response to LGBT pride flags displayed in hallways.”

The Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) was letting Lebanon High School know that they had a presence there by hanging LGBT flags around the building.

This seemingly innocuous action, as seen by the liberal population, is far from innocent. The GSA has long been known to coerce children into becoming a part of the LGBT community, as Mommy Underground has previously reported.

Gabby Helsinger was empathetic towards all the lost kids who get caught up in the confusion of the LGBT community, so she felt led to put up Bible verses around the school after seeing all the flags.

On Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school,” Gabby said in a now popular Facebook video. “And I felt the need to write down some Bible verses so I could put them around my school. And I wrote them down and I put them around the lockers, the walls.”

The video continues, explaining why she did this thoughtful act:

Seeing that there [were] people in my school that needed help … ,” said Helsinger. “They don’t need to be living in the confusion of wondering if they should be gay, bi, lesbian, trans — anything like that. And I know that God is the only way that they can be healed by that, and that’s why I did it…”

Unfortunately, that is not how Lebanon High School is seeing Helsinger’s actions, and without notice suspended her for targeting the schools GSA club.

Gabby Helsinger, a Lebanon High School student, posted a video on Facebook Friday claiming she is being punished for “targeting” the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club.

The same day the verses were put up, sharing a little inspiration with the hopeless students at the high school, a teacher was seen by Helsinger taking the verses down.

Despite the inappropriate action taken by the teacher, and the clear bias of representation in the school, Helsinger did not engage the teacher or start any conflict.

Thinking the peaceful attempt at expressing her faith at school was over, Helsinger came to school the following day as usual.

However, she explains on Facebook how her day took a turn for the worse. She states:

The next day, I got called to the office and there is a letter that says that I have an ISS, which is an in-school suspension, and the reason why I have it is because ‘abuse of others, disrespect, rudeness’ because I put Bible verses up ‘targeting the GSA organization,’”

This is impossible, seeing that Helsinger “did not know what the GSA organization was or meant.”

A Bible verse is not rude, disrespectful, or abusive.

Helsinger was questioned by the principal, according to her video, asking her why she did what she did, in which she replied that she wanted “to spread the word of God.”

Then the principal wanted to know if she had “permission” to put up Bible verses. She responded that she didn’t know you needed permission, because students put notes on lockers all the time.

It is wrong that this principal targeted a Bible believing student for something that is not against school policy, reprimanding her and taking away her right to express her faith.

Faithwire reports on Lebanon City School superintendent’s response to the event, stating how the school’s Code of Conduct “does not prohibit the sharing or posting of religious text or imagery at school.”

Bring your bible.org specializes in the laws that pertain to religious freedoms in public schools, and they report:

In general, students can voluntarily express their personal and religious beliefs to their classmates through verbal or written expressions, as long as they follow school policy and do not engage in these activities during classroom or instruction time. Schools can enforce reasonable limits on times and locations for where students are allowed to distribute materials. But these regulations must be applied equally to all students. That means schools cannot impose an outright ban on religious-themed materials if they already allow students to distribute non-religious materials.”

Fox News tried to get a comment from Scott Butler, the principal who unjustly sentenced Helsinger to suspension. He simply responded:

“We do not publicly discuss the discipline of individual students. In general, when a student violates the Student Code of Conduct, there are consequences for those actions.”

But as we know, the superintendent already verified that the Code of Conduct was not broken.

Butler is not facing any repercussion that has been reported since bullying a girl for believing in something different than him.

This kind of bias and persecution of religious expression in public schools is widespread and inexcusable.

Don’t fall victim to liberal bullying, and let your state officials know when your child’s freedoms are violated.

Please let us know in the comments section if you have a child who has been targeted for believing in the Bible.
