Teacher Finds Special Notes In Student's Lunchbox - Immediately Sends Police To His House

It's illegal for public schools to promote any particular religion, but some students are being penalized for sharing their faith off campus. A family is seeking to take the matter to court.

Parents with a child in a California school believe their son's Constitutional rights are being violated. It all started when the mother began tucking notes with Bible verses into the student's lunchbox. The young Christian boy began sharing the notes with his friends at the lunch table.

Some other Christian kids began asking to copy down the verses. The boy asked his mother to send more copies, and she did. She also included stories putting them into context. When a teacher caught the students with Bible literature at lunch time, the parent responsible for the trend got a call.

The teacher told the mother, known only as Christina, that her son wasn't allowed to pass out the literature during school hours because it violated the separation of church and state. The teacher did say her son could pass them out after school.

Christina's son did just that, and so did more than a dozen other students who liked the idea. Eventually the school complained and said the kids have to stand outside the gate.

The kids moved outside the gate, but after a while this still wasn't enough to satisfy the school. Christina's husband Jaime was supervising the kids, and the principal approached and told him they couldn't hand out literature at all on school property. Jaime promptly led the children across the street.

That night, sheriffs arrived on the family's doorstep and told Jaime and Christian that handing out the notes might offend someone. He advised them to stop.

Christian nonprofit organization 'The Liberty Counsel' is teaming up with Christina and Jaime, as well as other families, and fighting what they call ‘an outrageous violation of a first grader's constitutional rights.’ They're considering filing a lawsuit against the school.
