Last Thursday, an Ohio high school student was given an in-school suspension for posting Bible verses on school property in response to the LGBT pride flags that were hanging in the hallways.
Gabby Helsinger recorded a video on Friday regarding the incident, claiming that she was punished for targeting Lebanon City School’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) Club. However, the teen claims that she did not even know what the GSA was or what it stood for.
Gabby retells the chain of events leading to her unjust disciplinary action in a video that her mother, Tina Helsinger, shared on Facebook.
Lebanon schools celebrates evil and punishes righteousness!!
Parents – if this was happening to your child – what would you do?
Please listen to her story. If you feel she is being unjustly punished please flood emails and calls to the Principal and Assistant Principal if Lebanon High School. Their email addresses and phone numbers are below!
I appealed the punishment stating “Posting a Bible verse is not abuse of others, disrespect/insolence/rudeness and in no way was it targeting GSA” but the school principal, Scott Butler, says “Gabby was targeting the GSA organization” and therefore must report to ISS Wednesday 3/13/19.

“Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school,” said Gabby. “And I felt the need to write down some Bible verses so I could put them around my school. And I wrote them down and I put them around the lockers, the walls.”
“I was coming back from lunch… and I saw the teachers taking them down,” she continued. “The next day, I got called to the office and there is a letter that says that I have an ISS, which is an in-school suspension, and the reason why I have it is [that] ‘abuse of others, disrespect, rudeness’ because I put Bible verses up targeting the GSA organization. I did not know what the GSA organization was or meant.”
According to Gabby, her school heavily favors liberal LGBTQ values over Christian values, and she feels this is the true reason for her suspension, which is now making headlines across the nation.
