This Seventh Grader Was Told To Stop Reading His Bible At School

In Marshall, Missouri, twelve-year-old Loyal Grandstaff was reprimanded by a teacher at his public school for reading the Bible during a break time. Loyal's parents say his fundamental rights were violated.

Loyal’s dad, Justin Grandstaff, said in a recent Fox News article, "I feel like it violated his freedom of religion but also his freedom of speech."

Loyal says he was not talking to any of his classmates about the Bible; he was simply reading it.

“I like to read my Bible because it’s a good book,” Loyal said.

Loyal's parents say they will take a "grand stance" to stand up for his freedom of religion and plan to further discuss this with the principal of the school this week. 

To hear what Loyal has to say, watch the video below.
