Students Face Being Expelled for Praying for Sick Professor

Christmas present last year.

The professor told Kyriacou she was not
feeling well, and Kyriacou offered to pray for her instructor. The
teacher welcomed her student’s prayer. Another professor named Derek
Piazza, who shared the office, entered and told the student to stop
praying. Kyriacou quickly left the office and joined her friend, while
Piazza followed them outside to continue his rebuke.
Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI)
further explains the story. “In fact, students were actually praying
for an instructor who was ill, and this instructor welcomed and wanted
them to pray for her,” he says. “They were quickly ostracized and told
not to pray and that such praying was not allowed on campus.”

Then three days before Christmas, Kyriacou and her friend received
letters in the mail. “These college students got a written notice of
intent to suspend them from campus because of their praying,” Dacus
adds. “Since when does praying for a sick teacher to get well — with
her consent — earn a suspension?”
PJI attorneys are already in action and have filed a lawsuit against
the school. “Make no mistake, we at the Pacific Justice Institute will
take this case as far and as high as we need to make sure that students
across the country are not reprimanded or forced to leave campus simply
because they’re praying,” Dacus contends.
