At Kingswood Elementary School, things are really changing. Once consisting nearly entirely of followers of Christ, newly arrived pupils have altered the student and faculty landscape completely. While this shouldn’t be a problem in a country with freedom of religion, such as ours, the desire of education officials to put recent entries “at ease in their new environment” is proving to be difficult for the more established Christian base. This can be seen in recent events in the third grade class of Mrs Mamasay Mamakusah.
Earlier this week, students were asked who in their lives they considered their heroes. Most students named their parents or their teacher. Some mentioned sports heroes. But one pair of siblings, Joe and Alex Barron, gave the right answer. When called upon, each replied that their personal hero was their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Almighty.
That’s when the atmosphere in the classroom changed. Immediately, some of the newer students began to shake and cry. And Mrs. Mamakusah became enraged.
Mamakusah directed the brothers Barron outside class where they were admonished for having mentioned Jesus Christ in class. She told them it was culturally insensitive and that they had to be more appreciative of their classmates’ feelings. They were each given one week detention after class each day, during which time they were to write essays on how people should be treated in a civilized society.
It should be noted that those who mentioned the deities of other religions in class have never been punished.
Political correctness and efforts to be culturally sensitive have gone too far. So far, in fact, that we are the ones who are being treated cruelly. The pendulum has swung the other way and Christians are now the victims.
