School Calls Sheriff to Stop 7-Year-Old From Handing Out Bible Verses



Liberty Counsel has demanded that Desert Rose Elementary School correct an outrageous violation of a first grader’s constitutional rights. The situation started with an encouraging note and Bible verse from mom Christina Zavala, tucked into a packed lunch for her little boy (“C”). The seven-year-old boy read the note and verse, and showed them to his friends during lunch time at school

“What’s that ma’me? Proselytizing?  In broad daylight at school?”  

The notes were a hit, so the child was eventually forced to the edge of the school property.

…on May 9, 2016, Principal Melanie Pagliaro approached Mr. Zavala at that location, and demanded that C only hand out the notes on a public sidewalk, far from the exit, off school property. The family immediately complied. [They moved! – Dave]

Later that day, however, a Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff knocked at the door of C’s home, demanding that C’s note sharing cease altogether because “someone might be offended.” C’s family then asked Liberty Counsel to help protect their child’s constitutional freedoms.

Someone might be offended?  The mere possibility that someone might be offended is enough to teach this particular message to a 7-year old?  He might as well learn it now: The state is no friend of religion.

    Alright Fr. Paul. Who is the fist face over Sgt. Friday’s shoulder? It’s not Johann Banner, the eyes are wrong. Not Raymond Burr, too short.
