200 Kids Walk Out Of School In West Virginia

03.08.11 | Sarah Harnisch

 200 kids at a high school in Giles County, West Virginia staged a protest Monday after the school ordered that the 10 Commandments be taken off the walls of the building. Only 800 kids go to that school. That means one child of every  four walked out of classes to stand up for their beliefs.
  The school says they pulled the verses out of fear of lawsuits. One of the largest groups threatening to sue, the Freedom From Religion foundation, issued a statement last night: "we would rather see Giles County students stand up for the Constitution and freedom of conscience then walk out in support of theocracy. It is not only unconstitutional to post one's religious edicts on the walls of public schools, but it is bad manners."
   The kids say they are not moving until the bible is posted back on their school walls. If you want to see these kids in action, take a look at this video.
