School Board Blocks Student Pagan Club
<snip>

CRESTVIEW, Fla. -- The Okaloosa County School Board passed a rule to prevent a 12-year-old girl from forming a pagan club at her school.

The board passed a requirement that clubs have at least five members and a faculty sponsor after the girl's mother, Stephney Aigret, had approached officials at Max Bruner Jr. Middle School in Fort Walton Beach.

"She doesn't have enough people to start her club," Aigret told the board during an hour-long debate Monday. "So this, in my opinion, is just one way the government can shut down undesirable clubs."

American Civil Liberties Union members also argued the rule would violate the girl's rights and federal laws on equal access.

1. I hope the family keeps fighting!
I like that they tried to get the pledge of allegiance stopped. Cool!

Stupid school systems and their blanket full-frontal hypocrisy.
