Pretty disgusting. Is there anybody who can be trusted anymore?

This makes me sick. This is the SECOND teacher charged with this from GBHS. Several years ago it was the band teacher. I hated then how we, the band parents,were NOT notified about this! I found out about it in the newspaper. Teachers KNOW BETTER.

Our country was founded on Godly principles. We took God and prayer out of our schools. Where there is a hole something surely comes along to fill it. We the people need to start standing up for our rights as Christians and stop letting the hand full of devil worshipers run our country.
