San Diego Public School Dance Teacher Fired for Playing Song with Christ in it
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- Kathy Villalobos was a dance teacher for two San Diego Public Middle Schools. For five years she taught young teens how to dance. One day in class she played a song to her students that had the name "Christ" in it. Within five days, she was fired. That event transpired 4 1/2 years ago.
This Monday August 24, jury selection and her trial begins at the El Cajon East County Courthouse - along with a lively protest beforehand of the rights that were violated as a result of this firing.
"This is a tremendous injustice and violation of religious liberties" said Mary Kuper, Protest Organizer "Our Country was founded upon 'In God we Trust' and 'One Nation Under God', mentioning the name of Christ is an honor and a blessing, certainly not a reason for termination of employment. We hold the public school system accountable for this unreasonable act of injustice."
Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) is representing Ms. Villalobos. Brad Dacus, President of PJI, will speak at the protest Monday morning.
