Religion in School Argued in OH Supreme Court
The Ohio Supreme Court heard the case on Wednesday of a teacher accused of crossing the Constitutional line between Church and state.
FOX News Radio’s Jennifer Keiper reports:
John Freshwater was fired in 2011 because the Mount Vernon, Ohio school board says the teacher refused to remove a Bible from the classroom and preached Christian beliefs when talking about evolution and homosexuality. Two lower courts upheld it, but the Ohio Supreme Court has just heard from both sides.
A school attorney, who was repeatedly questioned by justices, says Freshwater waved the Bible at his students and handed out religious pamphlets. Freshwater’s attorneys say that’s an exaggeration and he was only exercising his academic freedom to explore controversial ideas.
A ruling could take months.
