Statement of Support for Bring Your Bible to School Day–from Father of Student in Religious Freedom Case

On Bring Your Bible to School Day, Oct 16, 2014, Paul Rubeo—the father of Giovanni, a fifth-grade student who was told he couldn’t read his Bible during a free-reading period—issued this statement:

My son, Giovanni, and I wholeheartedly support and honor all the students who took part in Bring Your Bible to School Day.  Events like these give us a chance to celebrate our religious liberties, as protected in our Constitution. Based on my son’s experience, I know it takes courage to stand up for your rights and make a difference. That’s why we support this event and encourage more students to be part of this movement now and in the future. Giovanni-father-image-newsinterview
