MEMPHIS (CBS CHARLOTTE) – A mother is angry after her daughter wasn’t allowed to write about God for a school assignment.
According to WREG, Erca Shead says her 10-year-old daughter Erin, a student at Lucy Elementary in Memphis, Tenn. was told she couldn’t use God as an idol and had to pick another idol for the assignment.
“It was so cute and innocent. She talked about how God created the earth and how she’s doing the best she can,” Shead told the tv-station. “But my teacher said I couldn’t write about God. She said It has something to do with God and God can’t be my idol,” said Shead about what her daughter told her.
Shead said her daughter wasn’t allowed to leave the assignment about God at school and that it must go home with her.
Instead of God, her daughter chose Michael Jackson as an idol and that was accepted.
