Do you know how hard it would be to prove these allegations in court?

She essentially has to show her tests and the jury or judge would grade her and check if this is unfair.

This will be her ultimate test.
And we'll see who is honorable.

Till then... Good luck.

From source:


DENVER -- She was an honors student and a member of student council, but now Cidney Fisk is suing her former high school for violating her constitutional rights. Fisk graduated from Delta High School in 2016. She is accusing her teachers of sabotaging her grades, and chances for college admission and scholarships because of her religious beliefs. “Not only did they change her grades, they took away her recommendations and they ostracized her,”

.....

In the article, Fisk “outed” herself as an atheist. “Her grades were changed to F’s almost immediately after the Daily Sentinel article featuring Ms. Fisk was published,” the lawsuit says. Fisk said before the article, she had earned a 98 percent in her student government class but was dropped to a 70 percent because of her “'questioning of authority,’ particularly religious authority." According to the lawsuit, her teachers “told Ms. Fisk that she was being highly disrespectful and that if she wanted her grades to go up, she should ‘shut up’ and ‘fake it until she makes it.’”


What a disgrace. I think what bothers me the most about this situation is the authoritarian mindset of the school more than the religious aspect. Hopefully the lawsuit isn't settled out of court. There needs to be a precedence that public schools cannot sabotage grades because of religious beliefs.


Does not the concept of freedom of religion also mean the right not be religious?

This sounds like something from the medieval times. The US is speeding up is slide into that great big back hole of tyranny from which they will not emerge for scores of lifetimes.

Any reason other than just a wild opinion as for why you think she made it all up??

Or are you just going with your own clarevoyance on this one??

Thanks for posting this.

It's absolutely disgusting the sheer favoritism Christians show for their religion. It's a major problem in this country. Atheists are treated like absolute crap, they have to stay in the closet or everybody discriminates against them. These things just keep happening, which is absurd, considering their savior teaches to treat everybody as they wish to be treated, especially sinners. It's reasons like this why we will never have an atheist president. Christians consider atheists as bad as rapists and murders (based on pew survey). It's pathetic. Meanwhile our children keep getting raped in church and nobody so much as bats an eye. Pathetic.

And by the way this isn't the first time this has happened, it happens all the time, hence why atheists essentially have to be quiet and never mention their beliefs while these idiot faculty members promote religion in a public school. There was another story 3 or 4 months back where a kid merely mentioned to another kid he was playing with that he didn't believe in god, after being asked about it. Guess what happened? The kid who heard it, told his parents, who then told all the other parents. Then the atheist kid's life became a living hell. He was bullied on a daily basis, people shunned him, parents forbade their children to play with him, their house go vandalized, the parents got discriminated against. It's terrible and it's plaguing this country. People are too goddamn stupid here. They think personal beliefs magically become facts and you can throw it in people's faces all you want, but the second somebody comes out with a conflicting opinion they get super butt hurt and become bullies over it. It's very sad in 2017 that this type of discrimination STILL occurs.

You're absolutely right. And yeah. Hopefully in time it will change.

There's a great youtube channel called "Cult of Dusty" that has a monthly video on religious issues in the news, I bet this will make it but I am going to email him to be sure he includes it. It's no exaggeration that every month there are at least 5 new sexual abuse of children allegations toward church leaders (pastors, high priests etc). The religious nonsense is getting out of hand here.



Here is a link to August's video. If you are into atheist rights and fighting religious people that abuse their power and violate the constitution. Then this is a great channel to subscribe to. This stuff largely does not make mainstream news.

Thanks for the link! I am not surprised that negative religious news doesn't exactly trickle into the mainstream. I happened upon this at an aggregator.
