Pro-Christian film won’t be shown in school (January 10, 2022)

After a student contacted FFRF to report that an Oklahoma science teacher was showing students a Christian propaganda film during class, FFRF Attorney Chris Line sent a letter to Superintendent Brian Beagles of Sperry Public Schools.

Beagles was informed that playing Christian music in class and requiring students to watch a Christian film entangled the district with a religious message.

FFRF also informed Beagles that “Facing the Giants” is a Christian propaganda film about a struggling high school football coach who inspires his team to believe in the Christian god and to use religious faith to succeed.

Counsel for the school responded to FFRF and reassured it that the issue had been addressed and will not happen again.
