An Ohio high school girl, who posted verses from the Bible around her school in response to gay pride flags, has been suspended from school.
Students from an LGBTQ group hung up gay pride flags and in response to that, Gabby Helsinger posted verses from the Bible around her school.
Later, Gabby was issued ISS (in-school suspension) for her actions.
After being suspended from school, Gabby explained why she posted verses from the Bible around her school.
Her mother, Tina Helsinger shared the video on her Facebook which went viral.
“So, on Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school. 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. And I was coming back from lunch, because I got sent back to lunch, and I [saw] the teachers taking them down” she says in the video.
“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’ (Gay-Straight Alliance] organization,”
Gabby explained why she posted the verses. She said:
“Seeing that there [were] people in my school that needed help … 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,”
She told her principal the same. She said: “I said, ‘Because I wanted to spread the word of God”, And then he goes, ‘Well, did you have permission?’ And I said, ‘No.’ I didn’t know you had to have permission because people do it a lot — putting Post-It notes on people’s lockers, so I just did it.”
“I asked him why every time Jesus or God or anything like that gets brought up in school, it gets taken down straight away. But we can put gay and pride stuff all over the school, and not have to take it down, and people can talk about it. But when you talk about God or Jesus, you just get put down and you’re not allowed to talk about it.”
