Suspended for Saying Bless You

Suspended for Saying Bless You

Suspended for Saying Bless You

I’m all about freedom of religion or if someone wants, no religion at all.

But I draw the line at a young girl, Kendra Turner, being temporarily suspended for saying “bless you” in the class room.

From the article

A young girl, who claims she was standing up for her religious beliefs in the classroom, was suspended after breaking a class rule of saying “bless you” after a classmate sneezed.

When Dyer County High School senior Kendra Turner said bless you to her classmate, she says her teacher told her that was for church.

“She said that we’re not going to have godly speaking in her class and that’s when I said we have a constitutional right,” said Turner.

Turner says when she defended her actions, she was told to see an administrator. She says she finished the class period in in-school suspension.

Now some say she wasn’t sitting next to the girl and had no reason to say bless you on the other side of the room, but honestly?

Sometimes I think the entire world has gone mad.
