A Cumberland County high school student is refusing to do a particular homework assignment citing that it violated her Christian beliefs.
Tieanna Trough is an A-B honor roll student at Gray’s Creek High School. The junior potentially sacrificed her good grades over her Christian faith.
Trough refused to write an essay on making a deal with the Devil.
“I believe you don’t write about how to sell your soul to the Devil,” she said.
“We can’t allow God into the classrooms, but yet they are going to allow the Devil in the classroom, that’s the way I felt,” Trough’s mother Monice McLean said. “They were told if they didn’t do it they would get a zero.”
Monice McLean-Trough says an alternate assignment was also unacceptable, so they complained to school officials.
