After her teacher told her in class that “God is a myth”, a junior high student says she will not back down from her faith, and stands by her answer.
A school teacher from the Katy Independent School District tells her 7th grade students that God is a myth. That’s according to 12-year-old Jordan Wooley, and corroborated by other students in the class.
Jordan showed FOX 26 a classroom assignment where students are asked to differentiate between fact, common assertion, or opinion. The second item on the paper was the statement “There is a God.”
“I told her it was a fact, indeed true, based on my religion, and she said that I was incorrect. I was wrong,” Jordan told FOX 26.
She says she still answered that the statement was factual because her faith is more important than getting a question right on an assignment. She also texted her mother from school, flooring Chantel Wooley that there was even a discussion about this in a public classroom.
“The majority of the kids believed in God,” Jordan’s mother told FOX 26, “and they’re being told by their teacher that there’s no God.”
Jordan says she and other students argued with the teacher about God being real. That’s when she says the teacher told them it became an argument in all of her classes Monday.
“They were really really upset. Jordan told me that one kid slammed her books on the desk that she wanted it [the discussion] to stop. Another kid went home crying,” Chantel Wooley said.
Ms. Wooley complained to the West Memorial Junior High principal Monday afternoon, but Jordan took her complaint to the Katy ISD school board Monday night.
“I can tell you that while she was up there at the school board speaking, I was crying,” Chantel Wooley said. “Here’s my kid, braver than most adults, speaking about her faith and how she felt violated at school.”
But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.
