Christian Student Suspended for Sharing the Gospel

Gabby Helsinger was targeted for her Christian faith.

Last week, she was suspended by Lebanon High School in Ohio for posting Bible verses around her high school campus.

School officials said her actions were ‘abusive to others, disrespectful, and rude.’

Sign the petition defending high school student Gabby Helsinger.

Demand Lebanon High School’s Principal Scott Butler and Assistant Principal Butch Ferrero immediately withdraw this decision and issue an apology to Gabby and other Christian students at their school.

Gabby noticed gay pride flags posted around the high school on Thursday, so she decided to post the Bible verses around the school to share the word of God and bring light to her school.

Later that day, she saw teachers taking down the Bible verses. On Friday, she was suspended for her actions. The school said that Gabby’s actions “targeted” the Gay-Straight Alliance club, but Gabby says that the verses were in no way meant to attack others.

Gabby’s mother, Tina Helsinger, appealed the decision, but Lebanon High School’s Principal, Scott Butler, is standing behind his decision.

The spiritual battle against spreading truth and our faith is real around the country. Christian students are being intimidated and fear real-life consequences for sharing their faith.

Help make the statement that this is unacceptable.

Tina posted a moving bible verse on Facebook: “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” – Mark 16:15 KJV

When you sign this petition, your email will be sent directly to Scott Butler and Butch Ferrero’s email addresses. Other schools are watching how Gabby’s situation is being handled.
