Our School, Skyview Academy in Highlands Ranch, CO, also was forced to give in to thugs robbing my daughter, our school community and myself of our constitutional right to exercise our freedom of religion. They use a threat letter, in lieu of a gun, to force coercion and involuntary compliance to their illegal demands. The letter is to cease or be sued. Our school board had to make the decision to back down, or lose money fighting a lawsuit. When are we going to fight back against religious bullies, with a pervasive "anti"bullying campaign", like the progressives do so well? This isn't the end of this. They picked the wrong fight. I am livid my constitutionally guaranteed religious liberties are daily being robbed from me. I'm done being bullied.
