An atheist teenager is suing her former high school and alleging that its teachers intentionally flunked her due to her views on religion — and ruined her chances of getting into the college of her choice.

The Denver Post reports that Cidney Fisk this week filed a lawsuit against the Delta County Joint School District No. 50 by claiming that her Christian teachers sabotaged her chances of getting into college because she criticized them for allegedly using their classes to spread their religious views.

Specifically, the Denver Post reports that the lawsuit claims that “her opposition to teachers, school board members and administrators, who she claims espoused religious views in school settings and meetings put her at odds with them.” As an example, the lawsuit cites a school board member who “once stated her ‘Christian’ belief at a school board meeting that ‘transgender students should be castrated.'”

What’s more, the lawsuit alleges that a school counselor told her that she could lose her positions in student government organizations — and even jeopardize potential college scholarships — if she continued her outspoken activism.

The lawsuit also claims that school officials barred her from joining the National Honor Society even though her 4.1 grade point average entering her senior year easily qualified her for joining the group. Additionally, school officials gave her bad reviews that hurt her chances of getting into two colleges, the suit alleges.

“Defendants retaliated upon plaintiff Fisk, threatened, punished and censored her, for expressing her opinions on religion, abortion, sex education, and drug education in an attempt to chill, deter and restrict (her) from freely expressing her opinions,” the suit claims.

He explained that the Village People had their own special message for the president. The group of SNL cast members came out dressed in traditional Village People outfits and sang their cease and desist for the president.

SNL does campaign ad asking what they’ll do without Trump to trash — then they have a revelation

Published

"What is the news even going to be about now?" the Saturday Night Life cast joked, saying that without President Donald Trump.

The fake ad began saying that everyone knows it could be the most important election of our lives.

"And the two choices couldn't be more different," the ad continues. "Do we want four more years of Donald Trump or a fresh start with Joe Biden? Can we survive four more years of scandal, name-calling, and racial division? Or do we want a leader who unites the country? I want to vote for Biden because he's better, smarter. better and better."

But, the cast members confessed, "I'm worried, because if Donald Trump isn't president -- when what are they going to talk about? Like, what would our conversations even be? Because the only thing I talked about for four years is Donald Trump. Every single day I tell someone, 'Can you believe what Trump just said?' My entire personality is hating Donald Trump. If he's gone, what am I supposed to do? Focus on my kids again? No thanks. He changed the game. He called the attorney general he appointed mentally retarded. That's some next-level sh*t!"

Published

"Saturday Night Live" began this week's show with a recap of the presidential debate showing President Donald Trump confusing Kirsten Welker with Hoda Kotb, Mindy Lahiri, and at one point, even a waitress.

Alec Baldwin explained that the coronavirus loved him so much that it didn't want to leave his body because it was so beautiful.

He also explained that he couldn't share his coronavirus plan because it was still under audit like his taxes.

Jim Cary toned down his portrayal of Joe Biden from last week's over-the-top yell-fest.

"Learning to live with it? We're learning to die with it, man!" said the fake Biden, quoting the real Biden, but with a glint of Clint Eastwood.
