PA School Demonstrates ACLU-Style Ignorance of First Amendment

Wesley Busch attends kindergarten at Culbertson Elementary in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. As part of the "Me Week," Wesley got to choose his favorite book and have his Mom read to the class. Wesley chose Psalm 118 from the Bible. His Mom was barred from reading it in the class. Welsey's teacher informed the young boy that it is bad to read the Bible. Principle Thomas Cook informed Mrs. Busch that reading the Bible is against the law because it violates the First Amendment "separation of church and state" establishment clause.

The school and Principle Cook demonstrated an "ignorant view of the Constitution that is often promoted by groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State," stated John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute, who is representing Mrs. Busch in a lawsuit against the school.
