When The Teacher Saw The Notes On This Child’s Lunch She Called The Police.
The popularity of the activity concerned the school even more.
Principal Melanie Pagliaro demanded that the boy and the other students only discuss verses off of school property completely. The family complied without a fight.
Then, the unthinkable happened.
A police officer actually showed up at the Zavala's house, to tell the boy to stop sharing the notes, because “someone might be offended." The family then sought legal help, now certain that his First Amendment rights were being violated.
An attorney for the family expressed his horror at the entire situation in a statement.
“I would expect something like this to happen in Communist Romania, where I went to elementary school," he said. "But cops don’t bully 7-year-olds who want to talk about Jesus in the Land of the Free."
What do you think: Were this little boy's right violated, or is it better to leave the Bible-talk out of the school environment completely?
