Bible Club shut down by Tennessee grade school

The folks who run the school district in Bartlett, Tennessee have shut down a grade school Bible Club.

Since last fall, first and second graders at Altruria Elementary School have gathered before the school day to read Bible stories under the watchful eyes of teachers.

But all that changed when the school district capitulated to a bunch of militant atheists and agnostics and abruptly shut down the Bible club.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation believes the Bible club is a violation of the Establishment Clause and they fired off a threatening letter to the school district.

“This club, which functions as a Bible class, is unconstitutional because public schools may not provide religious instruction,” wrote FFRF attorney Rebecca Markert.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a Wisconsin-based gang of atheists, agnostics and free-thinkers. They have been known to break out in raging microaggressions at the mere sight of a Bible or the Baby Jesus.
