System of the Antichrist: Fla. Teacher on Bible: 'Those Books Not Permitted In My Classroom'

 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. Dan 7:25


A religious freedom legal group is coming to the aid of a fifth grade student from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., who says his First Amendment rights were recently violated when his teacher told him he could not read the Bible during a classroom free-reading period.

The Liberty Institute, a legal group dedicated to defending religious liberty in the U.S., recently sent a letter to Broward County Public Schools, located in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., imploring the school district to revise its policies and offer an apology to Giovanni Rubeo, a fifth grade student at Park Lakes Elementary School who was allegedly told by his teacher that he couldn't read the Bible during a classroom free-read time.
Earlier in April, Rubeo's teacher, Swornia D. Thomas, reportedly told the student that he couldn't read his Bible during the classroom-designated 90 minute free read time. Rubeo's father had previously told his son that if a teacher asked him to put away his Bible, he should tell them "no" and call his father.

When Thomas asked Rubeo to put away his Bible, the student followed the advice of his father, refusing to stop reading the Holy Book. The teacher then demanded Rubeo "put [the Bible] on [her] desk," and when he refused, Thomas called Rubeo's father and left him a voicemail explaining the situation.

"Good morning Mr. Rubeo, Mrs. Thomas. Giovanni called you because I asked him to. I noticed that he has a book – a religious book – in the classroom. He's not permitted to read those books in my classroom. He said, if I told him to put it away you, you said not to do that. So, please give me a call, I need to have some understanding on direction to him about the book he's reading as opposed to the curriculum for public school. Mrs. S. Thomas. Thank you. Have a wonderful day. Bye-bye," Thomas said in the voicemail.
