Jews and Christians are being persecuted across the globe. That persecution has come to a public school in Tampa, Florida. The persecutor is a teacher who is a lesbian. Her name is Lora Jane Riedas. Her lesbian partner is also a teacher at the same Riverview High School.
Riedas is a Chapter leader of the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN). MassResistance reported:
Why are so many kids – many of them troubled – now “coming out” as homosexuals, announcing to everyone that this is their true “identity”, that it’s “who they are”? It doesn’t happen by accident. It’s carefully calculated by national homosexual activist groups pushing their programs in the nation’s schools.
This is the fourth part in our series on this year’s annual GLSEN Conference in Boston in April  which brought together LGBT teachers, activists, and supportive administrators where they outlined their latest tactics for the schools. Part III exposed the transgender agenda in schools. Part II revealed their plans to push “gay clubs” in middle schools.
Sara Gonzales from The Blaze in an article titled Florida teacher reportedly banned students from wearing crosses, now threatened with legal action reports:
A Tampa, Florida, high school teacher has prohibited several students from wearing cross necklaces in her classroom, and the school district is now opening an investigation into the matter.
According to a letter sent on Thursday to Hillsborough County Public Schools from Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit organization specializing in legal cases involving constitutional law, math teacher Lora Jane Riedas allegedly told at least three of her students that they were not allowed to wear the Christian emblem because it represented a gang symbol. One of the crosses, according to Liberty Counsel, is less than an inch tall.
“We write on behalf of parents of children in the classroom of teacher Lora Jane Riedas, a math teacher at Riverview High School, who report that Ms. Riedas has prohibited at least three children from wearing Christian cross necklaces in her classroom, claiming on occasion that they are ‘gang symbols,’” the letter said. “They are not gang symbols, but are symbols of personal faith.”
“[Riedas said] ‘I need you to take your necklace off.’ Our client asked ‘Why?’ and Ms. Riedas refused to explain, stating ‘That’s disrespectful; you have to take it off.’ Our client did not want to be disrespectful, so she took it off, but she felt bad because she felt she was being forced to deny her faith. All of our clients are afraid to openly wear their cross necklaces in class any more,” the letter stated, detailing a Christian student’s interaction with the teacher.
According to a Liberty Counsel statement:
Riedas’ classroom décor blatantly promotes a pro-LGBT agenda. Riedas retweeted, apparently during the school day, “favorite queer web series for kids” from “huffpostqueer” stating: “Here’s how to talk to kids about what it means to be an LGBTQ ally.” She is part of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s (GLSEN) Leadership Institute.
Riedas has prohibited at least three students from wearing Christian cross necklaces in her classroom, claiming they are “gang symbols.” One of the crosses, a tiny crucifix worn by Liberty Counsel’s ninth grade client, is less than one inch long. Riedas demanded the student stop wearing her cross necklace and singled her out for several false “misbehavior” allegations after the student removed the LGBT rainbow sticker from her class notebook. Riedas’ lesbian partner, who is also a teacher at Riverview, dressed as a nun for school spirit week, complete with a “cross necklace” made of skulls. She tweeted she has “a bad habit” and the point is to be “creepy.”
This persecution of young Christians is child abuse at best and a possible hate crime at worst.
