hand on chalkboardOne attorney believes a Georgia middle school has been given a tremendous ministry opportunity.

Many parents were upset to learn that their Cedartown Middle Schoolers were part of a discussion on Greek mythology that included a poem portraying God as a "mythical creature like a unicorn." School officials quickly apologized, according to Todd Starnes of Fox News, saying it was an "unfortunate mistake." But Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute says it was a violation of the Constitution.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)"The poem that was read to these children clearly crosses the line with regards to state hostility to religion and in so doing violates the First Amendment Establishment Clause. They clearly were in the wrong," he asserts. "What they did is unconstitutional."

But he also believes this debacle presents the parents with a tremendous opportunity.

"Parents should seize upon the opportunity to begin Bible clubs in that school district, and also other ministry opportunities, as well as have the district adopt school board policies that are very much in the parents' liking in a faith-friendly community," Dacus suggests. 

Those model school board policies can be downloaded at the Pacific Justice Institute website.
