12-year-old Jordan Wooley, the Texas girl who spoke out after her teacher made her say that God is a myth, says she has been bullied and told to kill herself after media coverage of the incident.
It all began when Jordan’s teacher assigned a quiz asking students at West Memorial Junior High School in Katy, Texas, to label statements as “fact, assertion, or opinion.”
Among the statements were “America is the most free country on Earth” and “there is a God.” After Jordan labeled the latter as a “fact,” her teacher told her to deny God or get an “F.”
The Katy Independent School District denied the incident ever happened and claimed no one could verify Jordan’s story. But that didn’t stop her from calling the board members “liars” and asking for an apology in a statement on Monday.
After the story was covered extensively in the media, some people have called Jordan terrible names and told her to kill herself, she explained to Clayton Morris on “Fox and Friends Weekend.”
“I’ve lost a few of my close friends, but that’s what will happen,” she said.
Despite that, Jordan said she’s not backing down.
“I’m going to keep going until something gets done, and until something gets done, I’m not going to stop.”
