High School Student Receives Suspension Because She Shared Bible Verses As Response to Rainbow Flags

Gabby Helsinger who attends an Ohio high school is not being silent about her suspension and why she got suspended, so CBN News reports.  

Helsinger shared that she received a suspension for posting Bible verses on walls and lockers in response to a collection of LGBT “pride” flags that decorated the hallways. In a video posted to Facebook last Friday, Gabby Helsinger claims that she is being punished for allegedly “targeting” the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club.

“So on Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school. And I felt the need to write down some Bible verses so I could put them around my school. And I wrote them down and I put them around the lockers, the walls.”

After coming back from lunch she saw that her bible verses were taken down and she got a not to come to the principal's office, where she got an in-school suspension. She says the reason they gave her was because of "abuse of others, disrespect, rudeness because I put Bible verses up ‘targeting the GSA organization," she explained. 

She also points out that she suspects that the real reason for her suspension was that her school favors LGBT ideology over Christian beliefs.

Helsinger shared why she did what she did to the principal, but his reaction was not what she expected: 

“And I said, ‘Because I wanted to spread the word of God,’” she said. “And [the principal] goes, ‘Well did you have permission?’ And I said, ‘No.’ I didn’t know you had to have permission because people do it a lot — putting Post-It notes on people’s lockers, so I just did it.”
