In Michigan, a public school banned an 8-year-old boy from bringing his Bible to class. Jason Cross is autistic and his mom says he likes to read the Bible during free time. Officials at Highview Elementary told him, “The book is only for church, not for school.”
This seems to be a prevalent view in our culture. Keep your religion at home and church. I am not sure what part of teaching, correcting, training in righteousness is unwelcome at school.
After a reporter called to question the report the superintendent of schools reversed the policy. Jason can read his Bible in his free time. —Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
