principal's nameplate on deskAn eighth grader in Oklahoma has decided to take a stand against the mandatory mask policy at his Christian school.

Tom Watts decided last Thursday, November 12, that he did not want to wear a mask at Oklahoma Christian School in Edmond.

"I just felt convicted to not wear one because it was promoting a lie and fear in others," Watts tells OneNewsNow. "I did not want to do that."

Minutes after being dropped off by his father, Tom called his dad and said that he needed to be picked up from school.

"Probably 40 minutes transpired where I'm standing in front of the building with the principal and my son, who doesn't have a mask on," accounts Jeff Watts, Tom's father. "This was not a yelling match. This was just two guys discussing why my son was removed and kind of removed for good."

According to Jeff Watts, Tom could put the mask on and return to school, or he would not be able to attend school.

"I discussed feedback that I've heard from different physicians, including Dr. Rand Paul and Scott Atlas and Twila Brase," Jeff Watts continues. "Let's not teach our kids to do something that is false hope, that doesn't work, that is basically implementing minute-by-minute fear in their lives."

Tom is now homeschooling, and Jeff asserts he did not put his son up to this decision.

"That became his deal," says Jeff. "I don't disagree with that, but I certainly didn't make my son do this."

Oklahoma Christian School did not return OneNewsNow's emails seeking comment.
