What is going on…in TEXAS no less?
Whatever happened to learning the “three R’s?” Now, students barely into their teens are being forced to defend their faith. Is this middle school or the Inquisition?
Jordan Wooley, a seventh grade student at West Memorial Junior High School in the Katy Independent School District outside of Houston, testified at a school board meeting last night that her teacher forced students to deny the existence of God and threatened them with failing grades if they refused to agree.

“I know it wasn’t just me who was affected by it. My friend, she went home and started crying. She was supposed to come with me but she didn’t know if she could” because she was so upset, Wooley said.”
Progressive humanists are the first ones to cry out about the inclusion of faith in public schools, but they seem to be the only ones forcing their opinions down students’ throats.
As Texas education activist Alice Linahan rhetorically asks, “Will Texas students get a good job when they grow up because they can read well, write well, do math and know history? Or, will they get a good job, without strong academics, but an emotional attachment and classroom experience to save the world on a global level from a humanist viewpoint, without a belief in God?”
I know how I’d answer that..
