An Ohio high school student is speaking out after she received a suspension for posting Bible verses on walls and lockers in response to a collection of LGBT "pride" flags that decorated the hallways. In a video posted to Facebook last Friday, Gabby Helsinger claims that she is being punished for allegedly "targeting" the school's Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club.
"So on Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school," Gabby says in the video, which her mother, Tina Helsinger, shared to Facebook. "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."
"I was coming back from lunch ... and I [saw] the teachers taking them down, and 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 organization,'" she explained. "I did not know what the GSA organization was or meant."
