Middle schoolers in a South Carolina school district have been repeatedly encouraged to attend Christian religious services on campus while non-believers are sent to detention or ordered to copy religious texts, according to a recent press release from the ACLU. At New Heights Middle School in Jefferson and at other campuses in the Chesterfield County School District, “students were encouraged to pray and sign a pledge dedicating themselves to Jesus.”
Watch the video (below) of evangelist Christian Chapman and Christian Rapper B-Shoc preparing to run an assembly at the school:
The ACLU is suing the school district on behalf of a student and his father who have been ostracized for their objections. For more information, read the complete press release.
