Twitter was lit up on Thursday with photos of children and adults, alike, holding their Bibles in honor of "Bring Your Bible to School Day," with many using the #BringYourBible hashtag to mark their participation.

But not everyone appreciates the nationwide event being spearheaded by Focus on the Family, a faith-based organization, with many using the hashtag to lambaste the Christian-centric effort.

See some of the negative reactions below (caution: strong language):

As TheBlaze previously reported, Focus on the Family launched “Bring Your Bible to School Day” last year to “encourage public school students from kindergarten to college to express their faith freely."

An estimated 100,000 participants will take part in Thursday's "Bring Your Bible to School Day" event. Read more about it here.
