from One News Now:
Ky. schools cover-up denying Bible club access exposed
Good News ClubsA Christian legal group issued the Boone County School District (BCSD) an official warning last week that it is discriminating against an evangelical Bible organization by refusing it equal access to school facilities for a K–5 after-school Bible club.
Attorneys with Liberty Counsel sent school officials a demand letter arguing that the district’s facilities use policy is consistent with equal access laws, and therefore cannot be used to keep Child Evangelism Fellowship’s (CEF) after-school Good News Clubs from meeting on the campuses of Stevens Elementary School and Goodridge Elementary School.
Instead of letting Good News Clubs meet on campus, BCSD is attempting to keep other nonprofit groups from meeting on its elementary school campuses, as well, by covering up information showing that it previously had no problem letting similar organizations meet at school facilities.
“The district has altered evidence that proves it was illegally discriminating against the Good News Club while allowing other non-profit organizations like ‘Girls on the Run of Cincinnati’ (GOTR) to use facilities space,” Liberty Counsel announced in its press release. “Now, administrators appear poised to cancel all 2018 Boone County Schools GOTR clubs – a local nonprofit teaching character to girls through its running program – rather than simply extend equal treatment to the Good News Club.”
In fact, Liberty provided evidence of the district’s allegedly sneaky maneuver that was administered in order to remove incriminating evidence.
