It’s always good when you can have a feel good story!
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is urging America’s students to live out their faith by bringing Bibles to school.
Brees, one of the all-time great NFL quarterbacks, made his comments in a video supporting Bring Your Bible to School Day, an Oct. 3 event that is sponsored by the Christian organization Focus on the Family.
“Hey guys, Drew Brees here,” Brees says in the video. “One of my favorite verses in the Bible is 2 Corinthians 5:7, ‘For we live by faith, not by sight,’ so I want to encourage you to live out your faith on Bring Your Bible to School Day, and share God’s love with friends. You’re not alone.”
The website for the event said it adheres to all laws touching on the separation of church and state as long as it is voluntary and student-led and does not interfere with classes.
“As a student in a public school, you have First Amendment rights to engage in voluntary, free speech conversations in a way that does not interfere with or substantially disrupt classroom time and academic instruction,” the website said.
“That means you can voluntarily express your personal and religious beliefs to your classmates through verbal or written expressions, as long as you follow school policy and do not engage in these activities during classroom or instruction time,” it said.
