An elementary school teacher in McCordsville, Indiana was triggered when students began discussing God, Jesus, and the devil at school.

According to the Daily Reporter, on Wednesday, the McCordsville Elementary School teacher sent out a note to parents titled “School language” requesting that parents have a talk with their children about not discussing religion in the classroom.

Parents were shocked by the request and argued that their children have the right to talk about their religious beliefs with their peers in the classroom.

It all began when the teacher accused five students in the note of discussing religion despite the teacher’s warnings to not discuss it.

“With McCordsville Elementary being a public school, we have many different religions and beliefs, and I do not want to upset a child (or) parent because of these words being used,” said the teacher in a note.
