Family Seeks Legal Relief So Son Can Read Bible During RecessTopics: Faith
Help me out here; I can't seem to understand why it's okay for other kids to read 'American Girl Doll' magazines, and others to read their 'Harry Potter' books, but Luke Whitson can't get in the corner of the playground and read his Bible! And just to make matters a little more confusing, the school claims that Luke's Bible reading jeopardizes - school safety???
A federal court has been asked to order a Knoxville, Tennessee, elementary school to stop prohibiting a ten-year-old student from reading his Bible during recess.
Luke Whitson and his parents have filed a motion for preliminary injunction against Knox County School officials, who allegedly threatened to punish the boy for reading his Bible during recess at Karns Elementary School. The district claims the Bible reading jeopardizes student safety and that, because recess is not "free time," they can prohibit Bible reading during that time.

I've seen you reference JihadWatch/DhimmiWatch in the past. . .coincidentally, the leading article at DW is "Congress Urged to Recognize the Beginning of Ramadan". Go figure.
