Christians outraged after Ohio high schooler suspended for trying to ‘heal’ gay students with Bible verses

Published

A Christian news website is outraged after a high schooler in Ohio was given a suspension for posting Bible verses around her school in the belief that they would “heal” some of her LGBTQ peers>

According to Faithwire, Gabby Helsinger was suspended by  Lebanon High School principal Scott Butler over the verses she shared in response to rainbow flags flown by her school’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club.

In a video posted to Facebook by her mother, the teen said she was called in after responding to the GSA while at the same time saying she had no idea what the club was.

“On Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school,” Helsinger explained in the video, adding, “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.”

According to the teen, she later saw school officials taking them down.

“The next day, I got called to the office and there is a letter that says that I have an ISS, which is an in-school suspension, and the reason why I have it is because ‘abuse of others, disrespect, rudeness’ because I put Bible verses up ‘targeting the GSA organization,’” she continued. “I did not know what the GSA organization was or meant.”

She then accused the school of being anti-Christian, and said she only wanted to share the “word of God” with gay students whom she feels are in need of “help.”

“Seeing that there [were] people in my school that needed help … ,” she confessed. “They don’t need to be living in the confusion of wondering if they should be gay, bi, lesbian, trans — anything like that. And I know that God is the only way that they can be healed by that, and that’s why I did it. I was not targeting any kind of organization.”

According to Faithwire, “The question that remains, then, is why Gabby received the suspension to begin with. If the student’s testimony stands, and she was not ‘targeting the GSA organization’ as Principal Scott Butler allegedly claimed, then it appears her only offense was not receiving prior approval to post the verses, which is a far cry from the accusations of ‘abuse’ toward other students.”

“The concept of same-sex ‘marriage’ and transgenderism’s denial of God-given biological sex are in direct conflict with Scripture,” the piece editorialized. “But if a school claims to allow for these incompatible belief systems to coexist with equal protections, people are bound to get offended every now and then. That is the price of such freedom of expression.”

New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion

Published

on

New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.

Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
