Lawsuit Filed To Protect California Student’s Religious Freedom

Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”

Religious freedom attorneys have filed a lawsuit in California aimed at protecting the religious freedom of a first grade student who was harassed by his school for handing out candy canes last Christmas with a message of Jesus.

Isaiah Martinez was told by his teacher “Jesus is not allowed in school” and prohibited from handing out the candy canes.

Advocates for Faith & Freedom filed suit in U.S. District Court to prohibit the West Covina Unified School District from stopping Isaiah’s distribution of the candy canes this year.

“The school has neglected to correct its actions, and after exhausting all options to avoid a lawsuit we were left with no choice but to file a complaint in federal court. We are asking the court to protect Isaiah’s rights and the rights of others like him from having their religious speech censored. Students do not shed their First Amendment rights just because they enter into a classroom,” attorney Robert Tyler said.

There has been no official statement from the school, however attorney James Long with the AFF says the school has made it clear they want only “religious neutrality.”

  2. The US is a Christian based country based & founded upon Judeo-Christian laws. The holiday’s & celebrations on a national level reflect this. Those who choose not to participate are free to do so, but NOT at the expense of others right to do so. Do you really think ANY other country would tell their own citizens they cannot celebrate their nations holiday’s?! This is p.c. beyond absurdity!

  3. Things of a religious nature should not be allowed to be distributed in school by anyone, even if they are a first-grader. I would not appreciate a first-grader handing out Islamic, Atheist, Voodoo, Buddhist, or Satan-worshipping material to my child, disguised as a Holiday gift. The problem is: if you allow one, you must allow everyone to give out whatever they want.

  4. Lord God Almighty;

    Lift up Isaiah Martinez & his strong parents for standing up for what belongs to us “Americans”. Inalienable Rights.

    Because of Jesus,
    JW
