Jesus just got kicked out of public schools in Henry County, Georgia.
The school district fired off a directive to school administrators ordering them to eradicate anything remotely religious from all public school buildings.
“You are hereby directed to remove all items which contain religious symbols, such as crosses, printed bibles, angels, bible verses, printed prayers, and biblical quotations from the common areas, hallways, classrooms, and office of East Lake Elementary School,” the edict read.
“Further…religious and biblical references should not be included in notes to parents, email signature lines, or any other correspondence sent on behalf of East Lake Elementary School,” the edict continued.
But the Henry County School District wasn’t quite finished with their orders to eradicate religion from the school house.
“Finally, please remember that all references to holiday parties should comply with the Henry County School District’s Policy, Procedure and Practices for Holidays,” the edict concluded.
Friend do you need any other reason that Jesus is coming soon? Are you ready? ill you give up your Bible or your School?
District spokesman J.D. Hardin confirmed the authenticity of the directive – sent to administrators on Monday.
“It was not intended as something that was supposed to be shared or put out with public consumption,” he said, as reports Foxnews. “It was more of a directive for our administrators to remind their employees of this particular law that is in pace as dictated by the federal government.”
“The Establishment Clause stipulates that the government may not promote or affiliate itself with any religious doctrine or organization,” he said. “Henry County Schools is a government entity.”
Mr. Hardin was stressed that the directive covers all religions – but it’s pretty clear only one was being targeted.
The edict made no mention of the Koran or prayer rugs. I’m just trying to keep it real, folks.
The school district will still allow teachers to wear religious jewelry – so long as it’s not “overt or way out there.”
