A public school district is PUNISHING its LGBT students by FORCING them to read the Bible.
This is wrong on so many levels!
1. A public school district is wrong to punish LGBT students.
2. No public school district should be promoting any religion.
3. A religion’s scriptures should be a joy to read and ponder. Forcing people to read them totally destroys the value of scriptures. Such an authoritarian command paints religion as a punishment, so it is actually hurting religion.
4. The U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment guarantees freedom of religion. Specifically, the Constitution prohibits government from imposing any religious pressure upon people.
