Utah Teacher Forces Catholic Child To Wash Ashes Off From Ash Wednesday Mass [Video]

Liberals always boast that they are tolerant of others. They claim that they don’t want to discriminate against anyone. But it turns out that tolerance doesn’t cover Christians or Trump supporters.

A grade school teacher in Utah forced a 4th-grade Catholic boy to wash off the “inappropriate” Ash Wednesday cross from his forehead.

As Catholics and Christians enter into the season of Lent, many Catholics attend Mass to receive the sign of the cross smudged onto their foreheads to commemorate their faith. But one teacher in Utah apparently felt that displaying the Christian cross in a public school was somehow illegal.”

William McLeod, 9, had just returned to his school near Salt Lake City after attending Catholic Mass when his fourth-grade teacher called the ash marking “inappropriate” and gave him a hand wipe to clean it off in front of his classmates, grandmother Karen Fisher said.”

McLeod tried to explain to the teacher that the ashes were important to his faith but the teacher refused to budge. So he took wiped the ashes off respecting his intolerant teacher’s wishes.

McLeod was very upset about the incident.

He went to see the school’s psychologist crying,” said Fisher. “He was embarrassed.”

The incident at Valley View Elementary in Bountiful, Utah, is being taken very seriously and an investigation into whether disciplinary action will be levied against William’s teacher has been opened, said Davis School District spokesman Chris Williams. In the meantime, she isn’t teaching, he said.

“The actions were unacceptable,” Williams said. “No student should ever be asked or required to remove an ash cross from his or her forehead.”

Moana Patterson, the intolerant teacher, was called in for a meeting with principal and school board. After the meeting, she had a change of heart and called McLeod to apologize.

Fisher, who lives with William, said Patterson gave a handwritten note and candy bar to William as an apology.”

That’s just cruel on the teacher’s part. The ashes were not hurting anybody so why would the teacher take it upon herself to do such a thing? Well, hopefully, the teacher learns some tolerance from this experience.
