Kendra Turner, 17, of Dyersburg, Tennessee was suspended because she said ‘bless you’ to another student who sneezed.
It seems that the teacher has a list of words you can’t say in class, and ‘bless you’ is on the list. The teacher told the Turner “Now we will not have godly speaking in my class.”
Kendra is accused of ‘shouting’ the phrase from across the classroom and continuing to defend her use of the phrase after the teacher called her out for breaking the rules on ‘godly speaking’.
