(Worthy News) - An Oregon school district is accused of forcing LGBTQ students to read the Bible for punishment.
The allegations are detailed in a March 6 letter from the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to North Bend School District Superintendent Bill Yester. The letter claims that a building administrator demanded that LGBTQ students read the Bible as a form of punishment.
The World reported Tuesday that the North Bend School District initially denied the allegations. However, the administrator involved in the case later admitted in an interview with state officials that the claims were true. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
