High School bans Bible Club
The Esperanza High School has banned Bible Club meetings on its premises after school hours. Officials at the school have said that the material being studied is not relevant to curriculum material.
According to a recent Press Release, the Bible Club was seeking to develop self- and community-improvement by discussing "issues facing students, including those related to faith, human rights, and the value of human life." There was also a program to feed the poor in the local community.
The school said that they would be allowed to meet if they discussed all major religions. A representative for the Club, though, has stated that, "Requiring the Bible [Study] Club to study either all religions or none is like forcing the Chess Club to also play checkers."
A federal lawsuit has been filed against the school district on behalf of the students.
