    Student Posts Bible Verses for LGBT Students, Gets Suspended

    An Ohio high school student says she was suspended after writing Bible verses on Post-It notes to counter students’ celebration of LGBT pride.

    Gabby Helsinger of Lebanon High School says in a now-viral Facebook video that she went to school last Thursday and saw LGBT pride flags and posters throughout the school.

    “I felt the need to write down some Bible verses,” Helsinger says in the video.

    She placed the Bible verse Post-It notes on lockers and walls, but teachers took them down.

    The next day, she was called to the principal’s office. She was told she was being served with an in-school suspension for “abuse of others,” “disrespect” and “rudeness” in targeting the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) organization.

    “I didn’t know what the GSA organization was or meant,” she says.

    The principal asked her why she posted the notes.

    “I said, ‘I wanted to spread the Word of God.’ And he goes, ‘Well, did you have permission?’ And I said, ‘No.’ I didn’t know you have to have permission because people do it a lot – putting Post-It notes on people’s lockers,” she says in the video.

    “I asked him why every time Jesus or God or anything like that gets [put] up at school, it gets taken down straightaway. But we can put gay and pride stuff all over the school and not have to take it down, and people can talk about it.”

    I am not American so I do not understand the thinking process in this very unfortunate story. What has the Bible to do with gender?… Read more »
