Students Sue High School That Banned Christian Club

"I don’t want any of these Christian clubs at my school."

Students at New York's Hicksville High School were prevented from starting a Christian club by the school principal who allegedly said, "I don’t want any of these Christian clubs at my school."

Via Fox Nation:

A federal lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a group of Christian high school students in New York who said their principal banned them from starting a Christian club.

“The principal said, ‘I don’t want any of these Christian clubs at my school,’” said David Cortman, an attorney with the Alliance Defense Fund, a conservative advocacy legal group.  The ADF filed the lawsuit Monday against the Hicksville Union Free School District in Central Islip, NY.

“Public schools cannot ban Christian student clubs simply because they are religious,” Cortman said. “If officials at government-run schools did their homework, they’d know that students have a constitutionally protected right to express their beliefs.”
