(Temecula, California) Last month, six-year-old Brynn Williams gave a Christmas presentation to her first-grade class at Helen Hunt-Jackson Elementary School and was told to stop and sit down by the teacher.
“Our Christmas tradition is to put a star on top of our tree,” the little girl said. “The star is named the Star of Bethlehem. The three kings followed the star to find baby Jesus, the Savior of the world.”Reportedly, Brynn's presentation was stopped to protect other students from being offended.
Before the child could utter another word, the teacher intervened, according to Robert Tyler, the general counsel for Advocates for Faith & Freedom – the law firm representing the Williams family.
“Brynn’s teacher said, ‘Stop right there! Go take your seat,’” Tyler said. “Bryn was not allowed to finish her presentation by reciting the Bible verse, John 3:16.”
