An attorney says it was wrong for school officials to rebuke a student in Ohio for posting Bible verses in her school in response to LGBTQ students adorning the campus with "gay pride" flags.
Gabby Helsinger was slapped with an in-school suspension because the Lebanon High School administration decided she was being "abusive, disrespectful, and rude." But as Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute tells OneNewsNow, none of that is true.
"She did not present those verses in any way to invoke hatred," he asserts. "She didn't do it out of hatred or out of spite. She did it out of the love of Christ."
Principal Scott Butler has accused Helsinger of targeting LGBTQ students -- something she denies. So Dacus says this is yet another example of why parents should consider pulling their children out of public schools.
"This is a great opportunity for churches and ministries to look into starting church homeschool co-ops to protect girls like this from having to go to school in such hate-filled, intolerant, hostile environments towards Christianity," the attorney submits.
Gabby's mother tells Fox News she is appealing the punishment because her daughter did nothing wrong.
The world's three largest religions – Christianity, Judaism, and Islam – all condemn homosexual behavior.
