Teenage senior student, Kendra Turner was brought up in a good Christian family and taught to mind her manners, including saying “bless you” if somebody sneezed. However, she recently found out that her teacher at Dyer County High School, Memphis, Tennessee, would not permit any mention of anything to do with God in her class.

According to Turner, she had only given the polite reply when one of her classmates sneezed because that was what she had been taught to do, but her teacher immediately told her that there would be no Godly speak in class.

When the teenage student stood up for her rights and informed the teacher that she was only obeying her religious beliefs, the teacher promptly ordered her to get out of the classroom and report to the administrator’s office, said Turner.

    Sickening to hear that schools are enforcing such a stupid policy. Perhaps if there was a return to Biblical teaching and morality, our children wouldn’t be in such a heartbreaking condition. Glad she stood up for her beliefs.

    Another ignorant as woman trying to destroy our children. That makes no sense at all, the devil is really trying to take over. God will reward her for her courage.

    Dyer county high school??! I’m from Memphis. Never heard of that high school the entire city is in Shelby county. I hope this one fact is wrong. I’ll try not to let this discredit the whole story for me

    The bible is light to our past. You stand up for the word of God. God made this county and he created everything in it. Man can’t make a sky, sun or rain, people we need to keep on praying for our students and teacher. God bless everyone.
