An Ohio high school student says she was suspended after writing Bible verses on Post-It notes to counter students’ celebration of LGBT pride.
Gabby Helsinger of Lebanon High School says in a now-viral Facebook video that she went to school last Thursday and saw LGBT pride flags and posters throughout the school.
“I felt the need to write down some Bible verses,” Helsinger says in the video.
She placed the Bible verse Post-It notes on lockers and walls, but teachers took them down.
The next day, she was called to the principal’s office. She was told she was being served with an in-school suspension for “abuse of others,” “disrespect” and “rudeness” in targeting the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) organization.
“I didn’t know what the GSA organization was or meant,” she says.
The principal asked her why she posted the notes.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.

If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
