School tries not to violate Constitution, violates Constitution

First Amendment attackA Christian attorney says a North Carolina school district has revealed that it may need to be educated on the Constitution.

Sulohur Springs Baptist Church spent more than $2,000 printing planners for students at East Alexander Middle School in Hiddenite, North Carolina after communicating with Principal Kristie Love about it. But as Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver tells OneNewsNow, the school later declined the planners because the two Bible verses printed on the back of them caused concern about separation of church and state.

"They ought to reach out to somebody who has some knowledge about what the Constitution says," Staver advises. "If they don't have knowledge of it, at least they ought to know where to go to find some answers. But to take this action, they might subject themselves to a lawsuit. They're trying to say that this is a church and state issue."

Staver

He asserts, however that "it's not at all."

"This is not the school printing the planners and putting scriptures on the back of them; this is a private organization that has spent its own money to print the planners and provided to the students at no cost for those students that want it," the attorney explains. "That certainly doesn't violate the Constitution. In fact, what the school is doing is violating the Constitution they purport to protect."

Staver encourages any school district to reach out to organizations like Liberty Counsel to find out exactly where they stand with constitutional issues before making a final decision in cases like this.
