School Caught Lying About Bible Ban, Faces Lawsuit

When will liberals realize that it is freedom of religion not freedom from religion?
Check it out:

Updating our previous story about a fifth grader told by his teacher he could not read his Bible during free time, school lawyers for Broward County Public Schools have now gotten involved and changed their story.

They now say that the time in question is not free reading time, but instead Accelerated Reader Program time. During this period, students can only read certain approved books, and the Bible is not among them. Hence, Broward County Public Schools will continue banning the Bible.

However, Liberty Institute lawyer Jeremy Dys investigated the program. He reports that contrary to the school’s claim, ten of the Bible’s 66 books are approved for the Accelerated Reader Program.
